Club Campsite Cook Of The Year 2019 Camping & Caravanning Magazine Heat
Calling all campsite cooks...
Do you enjoy cooking on a campsite? Can you rustle up a camping-friendly feast on a gas stove or a barbecue? Would you like to win a fantastic Cadac BBQ? Then listen up!
We want to find our most enthusiastic, talented and keen campsite cooks. Our Regions and Sections are running cook-off heats at events all over the country, which will culminate in a grand Cook-Off final at this year’s National Feast of Lanterns (the Club’s annual festival). But if you haven’t been able to make it to a heat we don’t want you to miss out…
So, how do you get involved?
The essence of the competition is to demonstrate skill and creativity in producing a simple campsite meal beyond burgers and sausages.
All you need to do is create your camping culinary masterpiece. Cook it on your camping stove, either in the garden or on your next camping holiday, and send us your recipe with a picture of your creation for our Eat Local Ambassador Ali Ray to judge. The winner will receive a Cadac Grillo Chef Barbecue as well as a pitch at this year’s National Feast of Lanterns, where you will get the chance to cook your meal at the final – and potentially be awarded the title of Campsite Cook of the Year 2019!
To enter complete the form at the bottom of this page and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with your recipe and picture of your meal.
Closing Date: Midnight 31st July 2019
The meal must be a camping-friendly main course recipe, one that can be prepared and cooked at your pitch on a bbq grill or gas stove (no ovens, microwaves or electric appliances allowed).
The actual cooking time (not including prep) must be 30 minutes or under.
The recipes will be judged on suitability for campsite cooking, creativity, and in particular the judges will be looking for a meal that embraces the spirit of our Eat Local campaign, whether it's using a fresh local, seasonal ingredient, incorporates a regional cheese, beer or fruit or perhaps just taking inspiration from a regional dish or flavour.
From easy but tasty one pan suppers, exciting salads, vegetarian feast a fabulous fish dish, great grilled meats to pasta with a twist... anything goes, we are looking to be inspired!
Please remember to make sure you are available to attend the cook-off final at NFOL 2019, Turnpike Showground, Shaftesbury on the 21st September. A pitch at the event, including electric, is part of the prize.
