Outdoor cooking for outdoor enthusiasts

MSR_9

One of the nicest things about traveling is when you get to taste traditional, authentic local food. But if you’re staying around a little longer than just a couple of weeks, you might realize that you can’t hit the restaurant everyday.

Why not whip out a meal yourself? Have you taken a stroll at the local market yet? Did you know which herbs grow in abundance in France or Italy? Have you seen the locals harvesting wild asparagus in their fields?

Say farewell to can goods and expensive restaurants. It’s healthy, cheaper, it’s great fun. Everyone in the family can chip in. You’re most likely a camper, tent specialist or are on vacation renting a holiday apartment. You might find some inspirations here.

What utensils do I need, which spices should I use, how long must I cook them and what should I cook tonight ??? These outdoor culinary inspirations are the result of many road trips. I often buy my groceries in the local market, and love trying out what the local butcher and (sometimes forests) has to offer. Most of these recipes were prepared over my MSR stove that has served me well for two decades.

What do I need?
