Smile Gone to pot

Hi Becky
We always use a pressure cooker, veg can be cooked in 5 minutes with minimal water, and it can be used for stews. Best with 2 small handles as easier to store. A small saucepan and a frying pan completes the set. We also have an iron pot as an Iveco has loads of room!
Bon appetite.

Trangia

Hi Becky,

We use a trangia to do our cooking in. This serves the purpose of the nestling pot set, but also means you have a back up cooker just in case. Also if you wanted to go on an independent hike somewhere you can take it with you.

You can see our kitchen cupboard Jenny and Ollie's Big Trip

and our cooker Jenny and Ollie's Big Trip

and generally our back setup

Jenny and Ollie's Big Trip

Cheers

another pot head!

I was asking about dutch ovens a couple of weeks ago and have since experimented and am well impressed! Bread etc is super and stews and chilli were fantastic. Heavy but mine will be going everywhere now...Only thing is i reckon it is best to get one with a flanged lid to keep hot coals on the top as I found the bread needs that top heat - mine is made by 'camp chef' USA and came pre-seasoned and I can definately recommend it so far.

Instead of a normal frying pan, I would suggest a half wok half frying type thing. Basically it's shaped like a wok but with a flat bottom rather than rounded. And it's made of good solid frying pan material rather than a thin wok.

I find this works well as you can fit loads into when making a stir fry for 6 people, it's big enough to heat soup or boil pasta or (you can get enough water in there) and the bottom is large enough that all normal uses of a frying pan are possible.

It also stores quite well as bowls or whatever fit inside it easily. It's what I use for 90% of my cooking. I have a large sauce pan for cooking on fires with and that's about it other than a good set of utensils and plates etc.

Anything with one solid handle to hold rather than two short stubbies handles that heat up is always safer as well.

I find large and deep bowls (try a Japanese shop - good quality and nice looking large bowls for about £3 each) are best. Big enough to sit a sandwich in the bottom of etc
