Remember the last time you went hiking, paddling, surfing or climbing and how good that simple sandwich tasted afterwards. Now combine the best of both worlds - really good food in the great outdoors.
When we venture into nature - in whatever form - we too often give our food the lowest priority. The destination and equipment play a much more important role in our planning. The food we choose, however, should do more than just fuel our muscles. It should not be a chore and a means to an end - for this very reason, we should not simply settle for mushy noodles including a bland sauce in the evening. Instead, it should be something we look forward to.
In our category HPT Selected we present you the equipment we use ourselves on the road - we have created a selection of the best articles we could find - maybe we can relieve some research work and offer you a shortcut.
And how do I manage to cook varied, healthy and above all delicious food with the right equipment?
We have teamed up with Kieran Creevy (gourmet & expedition chef) and developed an exclusive series of recipes that we would like to present to you in our new blog category "HPT Gourmet Camping" - recipes that are simple & good and invite you to try them out - whether on the road or at home. Here you will be supplied with delicious recipes from Kieran in the coming weeks & months!
Kieran is an expedition and private chef and international mountain guide with over 20 years experience in a variety of countries and very different terrain. He has cooked a 6-course menu with matching wines in a base camp tent, prepared homemade pumpkin and sage gnocchi with wild boar ragout at a snow camp in the Italian Alps and served reindeer loin with smoked beetroot and skyr in the Arctic.
