Lunch?

This is going to sound a random question. But if you were travelling or spending the whole day 'out' how would a lady carry her lunch?
There is a reason for this question and you'll probably laugh at me. But I'm going to a comicon and its so expensive to buy food there I need to take a packed lunch...but I want something inline with my 'medieval' cosplay. I'll also be carrying money phone tickets etc. around all day. I'm gonna make a purse to carry the money. Its just the lunch that's got me stumped.

How would her manservant carry it then? ;) I'm guessing it wouldn't be a plastic carrybag.

I would assume a leather sholderbag/scrip would suit perfectly (I can fit a for pack and fishand chips in mine)

On the assumption of late medieval, Dave is correct, a satchel is one way of carrying it. Another is a basket, hand or back type. Or on a horse saddlebag or suchlike.

I've got a 'saddle type' handbag (modern) do you think that would 'pass'? Its comicon but I do want to try and get close enough to historical so it doesn't look like cheap fancy dress.

Heard of "(The) Medieval Tailors Assistant"? It's a perfect book that has the common to elegant gowns, garments and robes (Not to mention surcoats, tunics ect ect) and talks you through each design from cutting the fabric to stitchings and laces. It's our bible for tailoring.
