Du vin.

Du pain.

Du big block of salami.

Love it.

Mentioned earlier in the thread but I'd add my vote to taking sachets of miso soup. pack up really small but pack a big taste, ideal on their own with some bread for a light meal or use as a base for soup:

Brown some diced meat or prawns . Make up miso soup sachet with water (I often use double strength for added flavour) and add to meat. Bring to the boil. Add some chilli paste, greens (pak choi, spinach or whatever you can lay your hands on) and noodles. If using fish instead of meat, add it now too. Cook until the noodles are ready.

For added sophistication and flavour, add a handful fresh coriander if you can get it.

Then I'll start going back through this thread and finishing off some of your suggestions.

Breakfast mess

Not uploaded the full recipes to the blog yet but here's the next video 'breakfast mess' - it was supposed to be a more simple omelette type meal but turned into a lot of meat in one pan ;-)

Next video is couscous-on-the-road from a suggestion via twitter (@matthewcashmore)



"A good hearty breakfast of sausage, bacon, black pudding and egg - but all in one pan and served with flat bread - the perfect start to the day! This was supposed to be a simple omelette type recipe - but I got carried away with the meat - so it became 'breakfast mess'. Enjoy!"

@flyingdoctor - yes good point... should have though of that....

@oldbmw It sounds like an error with the flash player - youtube required an update to the latest version some time ago, and if you're using Sea Monkey as your browser it's quite possible you're not getting the automated upgrade message. Try downloading the latest version of firefox, visit youtube at which point you'll be prompted to download the latest version of flash - do that - and then in theory this should also update the plugin in sea monkey.... of course that may not work and you may need to consult the help forums for sea monkey...

Busy couple of weekends

Hey folks, had a busy couple of weekends and we've got 6 videos in the can - the first is about pots & pans on the road, the next is about cookers, then we're doing kitchen gadgets - after that we're back into the cooking videos and I've got 3 recipes from this thread filmed, and almost, edited ready to go.

For now though... Pots and Pans – What you really need to be a great cook on the road

"When choosing what gear to take with you when you're traveling there's a dizzying array of kit to look at - this video shows you the pots and pans we've used on the road over the last few years. We share our mistakes as well as the secrets we've discovered - all so you can be the very best cook on the road."

Hi Matt, another great video. I'm looking forward to the next 5!

For those of us that cook on the road pots and pans are essential and finding the mix and match kit that suits your needs can take a while to get together. I use the 2 nesting pans from my Trangia 27 kit, they sit over the burner of my Coleman unleaded stove perfectly and protect it in transit along with an MSR stainless pan with a locking lid. My small Trangia kettle sits inside it as if it was designed that way. I take a proper little frying pan with me which my plates fit in nicely so everything packs away and doesn't rattle about. A few years ago I got one of those cheap enamel plates, 99p from an Army surplus store. This has proved to be an essential bit of kit. I use it as my chopping board and it sits over my frying pan as a splash guard. Everyone should add it to their mess kit. Non of my pans, with the exception of my frying pan, are non-stick. I haven't found it to be a problem and they clean up nicely. There are a lot of good quality sets out there. Thanks for showing us yours.

Will we be seeing you at Ripley this year?

This year I upgraded from my £10 gaz burner to optimus multifuel. I had intended using it with paraffin but simmering was not very good so for my Eatern Europe tour went kitted out to use petrol. What a horrible smoky mess. Which still wont simmer. It would be fine for alittle light foundry or blacksmithing but useless for slow cooking.
I will probably revert to the Gaz stove as it simmers ( very necessary) and is clean and quick to deploy. Several times I did not stop to make tea/coffee simply because of the hassle assembling and starting the omnifuel. Which I have yet to do without spilling a little petrol as it connects. All in all very unsatisfactory. If I travelled four wheeled or with a sidecar I would take a 1950's paraffin primus or equivalent.

@flyingdoctor - you're going to enjoy the next lot of food videos - another of your recipes ;-) I plan on going to Ripley - but then I've planned on going for two years and managed to miss it!

@oldbmw - that's less than ideal... here's the cooker video - tell me what you think.... especially the Primus omnifuel with both gas and jet fuel!



"Cooking on the road can be fantastic, or a real pain. Your choice of cooker is one of the most important aspects in delivering a nightly gourmet meal, or a mashed mess of food.

In this short video we discuss some of the options currently on the market - the MSR, Trangia, Optimus and Primus stoves - their good points, and bad. Helping you make the decision on camp cookers."

Eggs with mushrooms and union

Hello, great thread!
Since you are trying to make some stuff without meat...here is one good, that i like. Its simple to make and its done in 15 minutes.

Ingredients for two persons:
-one union
- can (200 ml) of chopped mushrooms in salt water (shampignons or other your favourite mushrooms)
-4 eggs
-garlic (not nessesary, but gives even better and fulfilled flavour)
-salt, pepper and other seasons you like

Preparation:
Chop the union and brown it in a pot with a little oil or butter, than remove liquid from mushrooms and put mushrooms (and chopped garlic) in a pot to bake it a little, than just put in eggs, seasons and stir it a little more.
Job done and taste is great!

Hope you will make it and show it to the rest of the one pot chefs!
