This is, perhaps, my favorite subject when it comes to camping, because I have been the chief cook and bottle-washer for our camping groups for years and years.
When it comes to food and food preparation I have tried just about everything in North America (within reason, of course). Frying stuff in a pan on a Coleman stove is vastly different from frying it in a pan on a campfire. Or frying stuff in a pan on a campfire on a windy day. Or when it’s snowing, or ninety degrees outside. And that’s just one cooking method!
Cooking and Food Preparation Techniques
A lot of the food preparation for camping can be done at home. That way you have time to actually camp when you get there! This blog is full of ideas to make food prep at home work for you at the camp site.
I like to include menus on the website because there are a lot of great camp cooks out there who just want some new meal ideas. We not only include menus here, we also have a free, downloadable, long weekend menu for anyone who wants to subscribe to Camping and Hiking Ideas. And all the recipes are either here or included with the free menu list! Click here if you want to subscribe and get that great little resource.
Styles of Cooking
I will also be showing and reviewing food preparation and cooking gear made especially for camping or that I have found is ideal for camping.
We’re gonna boil and bake and fry to our hearts’ content. Many of the recipes found here will be food I’ve tried and been awarded 10/10 for, from friends and family.
As always, I hope you’ll drop me a line and tell me what you think, or share a recipe or camping, hiking or survival cooking tip that you like to use. I would love to hear all about it.
