For those of us whose packing includes a just-in-case stash of dining utensils, here's an excellent alternative to raiding the kitchen drawers or making due with those awful plastic knife-fork-spoon sets you get at carryout places. Zelco offers Mangia!, a lightweight, stainless-steel flatware set made to be mobile. The fork and spoon nest together in a slot in the knife handle. A sturdy plastic snap-on cover holds the combo firmly in place and keeps the business end of the utensils clean in transport and storage (only the knife handle is left exposed). The sets are available with white, green, black or red plastic covers. Why not get a different color for each member of your traveling group? Mangia! is available in single sets of three nestling utensils or, at a bit of a discount, as a package of six sets. They're great picnic provisions to keep in the car - or to distribute to friends and family on the same or different journeys. Mangia means eat in Italian, of course, and now you can, anywhere.
