Is this, or is this not, a very clever gift indeed for someone who likes to cook, entertain and eat outside? Clever SIL (and brother and nevvy but SIL gets shopping credit) gave me this wonderful idea as a birthday gift. My head was instantly overflowing with ways to use it. Cut up veg ready to throw on the barbecue, stirfry goodies for outdoor cooking (my barbie has a wok burner), tacos, antipasto type nibbles, dips, sandwich fillings for picnics. Just brilliant. I can see this getting a lot of use.
