Here's the sauce:---basically cream that is reduced (with garlic & bay leaf) and then grated gouda & parmesan are stirred in. I want to make this about 6 hours ahead, transport and reheat. I don't have a thermos. Doable?
This mild, kid-friendly sauce is creamy and velvety, with a subtle tang from sharp cheddar. Try it with steamed or sautéed veggies, baked potatoes, nachos, open-faced roast beef sandwiches, and hot cooked macaroni or penne.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
