If you aren’t hosting dinner for the holidays, then you’ll probably want to bring a dish so that your host or hostess doesn’t have to make everything. The only problem is getting the food from point A to point B intact and still looking and tasting delicious. So if you are traveling over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house or all the way across town to enjoy some holiday family time, here’s a few quick and easy ways to travel with food.
Pack the finishing touches like garnish and toppings and put those on once you arrive. For desserts or dishes that have any extras, leave those until you arrive so that you can add the garnishes right before the food is served.
Use the Floor and Lots of Plastic Wrap. Don’t set food on a seat. Instead place it on the floor so there will be less chance it will spill. When packing up the food, use lots of plastic wrap on top of the serving dishes or plastic containers then place lids on top. This gives you an added layer of protection. Then finish by wrapping the lid and containers with more plastic wrap.
