I really, really want one of these!
Doesn't it just look wonderful, take it anywhere and rustle up the most amazing food on the hoof. I was surfing this morning and found this lovely website for artisan food producers, wish I was in a place they could deliver to...

We went to the potluck at Mario's last night. A small crowd but yet again food to inspire. I love potlucks, seeing the different interpretations of food from across the world. Ok in this case it was pretty much USA only but us Brits put on a good show, cannelloni (Italian) from us and curried potatoes from Androsian (Indian) who said the Brits aren't cosmopolitan??

I think appreciation of good food must run in the genes. My Gran and Mother were both great cooks, well Mum still is, and all three of my kids are great chefs. Lucy is a partner in a new Thai restaurant/cocktail bar in Bournemouth, England. She cooks a mean ramen dish. Charlotte bakes heavenly cakes and James would knock the other backpackers for six in his traveling days when he would create a mean chicken puttanesca from local ingredients.

My dear late husband always said;' the two best things in life are food and sex, neither of which should be hurried.'

How very true!
