    3. Have some secret ingredients that last for a week in the bottom of a pannier and cook as required.

    Confused in Wicklow (the stove didn't come with a recipe book)
    Last time I camped (in France), my evening meals mainly comprised a bottle of wine (yes, just for me!), a loaf of bread and some local cheese ... the stove was used to boil the water for the very necessary morning cup of real coffee and another cup of coffee (real!) along with my daily chocolate ration around lunch time. Occasionally I cooked pasta.

    I bought these daily while travelling ... and went to a restaurant when the meat craving became too strong. What could go wrong?

    • Get a bag of live Mussels or pick your own
    • Clean the Mussel shells, rip off the "beards" and bang them in a saucepan.
    • Pour in say half a mug of dry white wine
    • Cover the saucepan, bring to the boil and leave for say 5 mins - by now the smell is fantastic.
    • Chuck any Mussels that have not opened - they're dead
    • Pour most of the boiled wine back in to the mug - but leave the screggs (grit etc) at the bottom of the sauepan and discard it
    • Pour the wine back into the saucepan (still with the Mussels in it) and
    • Add a small carton of fresh double cream and a squeeze of garlic puree (or crush your own)
    • Stir and gently re-heat
    • Pour the lot into a deep bowl and
    • Scoff with fresh buttered bread and the rest of the white wine.
    If you have a eerrr ... "friend" and her pants aren't off within 20 minutes, you've done something wrong.
    Taff why do you have to take the 'beards' off, I always prefer them on when eating clams

    What I usually try to take:-

    Easy cook long grain rice.

    Small shape pasta.

    Tins of tuna.

    A few onions.

    Tomato puree (in a tube).

    Pesto (to go with pasta).

    Vegetable stock cubes.

    Mixed herbs.

    Encona chilli sauce.

    Curry powder.


    Add to that lot fresh bread, cheese, salami etc. and I never go hungry

    Camping Food

    If you go on to Ebay and look for Army Rations you'll see that it can be quite cheap. For a day's ration you get boil in a bag for the main meals, you also get fruit and savoury biscuits,a tin of Liver Pate a bar of chocolate, instant tea & Coffee and Boiled Sweets,Packet of Paper handkerchiefs, and some waterproof matches.The price is usually between £6 & £9.Try a bag at home, if you don't like it it's only £6 wasted.

    I am lucky as I like MRE's as does the wife (Ex Army) but she is a veggie so they don't always suit her taste.

    You can buy pre cooked rice in a bag and heat it then add the hot water to powdered soup and mix, sounds bad but after 14 hours on a bike it is a life saver.

    Get some insulated cups as well, great for eating the above from and they keep the tea/coffee warm in the morning.

    One of these and some bread is enough for an evening meal.
