Our camp kitchen setup

Camping in the great outdoors is a hungry business for everyone, and there is absolutely no reason why meals prepared in our somewhat limited camp kitchen can’t be easy, stress free, extremely rewarding and just plain delicious!

Successful camp cooking is as much dependent on your planning and preparation as it is on the actual cooking process. All you need is:
  • A well organised and packed camp kitchen, with everything you need and nothing you don’t
  • A selection of reliable, delicious and flexible recipes that can be easily prepared in your camp kitchen
  • The right ingredients either brought from home in your food pantry, or, in the case of bulky or perishable items, easily sourced on the road
The components of our camp kitchen are detailed in the following pages and consist of:
  • Tableware and cookware carried in a (not too large) plastic storage container
  • Cutlery and utensils carried in something like a celery or preferably a soft similar shaped container
  • Food pantry for long life food items brought from home carried in a soft zip-up bag with a wide opening
  • Bulky food items not requiring refrigeration either brought from home or purchased along the way and carried in a couple of cooler bags
  • Refrigerated food carried in the icebox / camp fridge
  • Dishwashing basins and collapsible bucket
  • Utilities folder containing various useful notes, checklists, recipes, snaplock bags, flat folded foil and baking paper and other similar items

There are plenty of delicious recipes you can prepare in our camp kitchen and in time we will be adding a few of our own personal (and easy) favorites for camping. Create your own recipe collection just for camping that you and your family love. Try them out on the family at home, or better still, get them to try them out on you, so you know they are delicious and the chef (whoever that is) is familiar with how they are prepared in your camp kitchen.

Once set up, your camp kitchen will be organised and ready to go whenever you are with very little packing time required. Certain components, such as your kitchenware container, cutlery and utensils and your long life food pantry, will be equally useful when staying in cabins or in other forms of accommodation when you are uncertain about the available cooking facilities.

At the risk of appearing to spoon feed you, we have listed every item that goes in our kitchen and utensils container so that you know exactly what you need in order to prepare the recipes that we will be listing on our site. You can then go to the camp kitchen checklist, download it to your computer and add or subtract items as you wish to tailor your kitchen checklist to suit your preferences and your own recipe collection.
