Are you an outdoor chef or know someone with a passion for cooking outside? Whether you are hunkering down at a campsite or heading into the backcountry, a delicious meal should be something you look forward to. Ditch the charred hot dogs on your next trip and take your cooking to the next level. Whether you are looking for a gift for the outdoor chef in your life or adding to your own collection, below are a few cooking essentials that you will want to consider.
Whether you go with a solar option or a two- burner propane version, a camp stove is a must. This is where you can let your creativity flourish and you can whip up a meal that is sure to surprise and please your family and friends. There are now even camping woks, like the Tembo Tusk Skottle Kit, where you can quickly cook a meal for a large group.
Lightweight Cooking Set
Gone are the days of having your pans bouncing and clanging together while taking up entirely too much space in your bag. There are now lightweight, durable and multi-functional cooking sets that collapse for convenience.
Tea Kettle & Enamel Cup
An oldie but goodie. There is something special about sipping your morning coffee in a traditional enamel cup while camping. Every outdoor chef can attest that coffee just tastes better when you have an endless view of nature in front of you.
FOG Safe Drain Guards
An outdoor chef loves the challenge of creating a meal that is totally unexpected. When you fry up bacon or sauté vegetables, there is oil and grease left behind in your pan. Instead of pouring this out next to your camping area, responsibly dispose of the fats, oils and grease with a FOG Safe Drain Guard. As Chef Anthony Serrano mentioned during his review, a FOG Safe Drain Guard would make for an excellent fire starter.
We know, you went camping to avoid packing everything including the kitchen sink. Sometimes you just need an area to rinse dishes and wash hands. There are a number of lightweight options that fold down incredibly small—so you don’t have to carry around those dirty dishes.
We are big on flavor, and a spice kit is perfect for an outdoor chef. You can either make one yourself with small containers or purchase a pre-packed spice kit. Either way, your meals will be flavorful, and you will definitely look forward to your next meal.
There is something about being outdoors that calms the soul and frees the mind. Cooking by a waterfall or BBQing by the ocean is just a feeling unlike any other. Now get out there and have an adventure!
