Dear All,

The camping season is official open. One of the topics for discussion that regularly comes up is, what and how to cook in the desert, what to prepare from home and what to bring .
The idea is always travel light and manage to get a good meal to sustain you for the period of time that you will be outdoors.

The aim of this thread is to develop a selection of foods (make ahead, instant, or cook while camping) that we all can visit and get ideas so we are all better prepared.


Please fill free to add your recommendations and how is done.

Chestnut on the fire


a) double layer of 20x20 cm aluminum foil (this is your base)
b) 20 chestnut
c) with a Knife pock a whole on the back and front of the chestnut
d) place the chestnut on four convoys (4 rows of five)
e) cover the convoys with a third 20x20 aluminum foil
f) make a flat bed of charcoal and place it on top
g) 10 min in to the BBQ turn them over
i) 22 min (total cooking time) and they are ready
j) remove the foil from the fire and let it cool off ( 5 min)
k) open the foil and enjoy ( careful because it chestnut will be hot for a while)

for the Instant Foods:
I will add pastry homemade, you will only need to worm it

and still anyone can do a BBQ but it needs much effort than other meals (but it's the best)
