We are working on this years plan for Campervan cookout and will be releasing a few videos that I've now edited with a couple of recipes from the tail end of last season.

I am just wondering what people would find useful and would like to see? Feel free to expand and discuss.

Great idea and absolutely agree with you. The recipes coming up for filming are our personal favourites but we will soon use those up and we constantly look for new things too. Often traditional recipes we find need a bit of adjusting to the recipe to cook on a camper stove.

The 30 minute idea is also good, because we all want good food but to enjoy our vacation time without too much work. We recently tried the Jamie Oliver book 15 minute meals the food is amazing but everything takes at least 30 minutes because he doesnt count the prep time and he uses every pan and utensil available.

The regional recipes is a great idea too, wherever we go use local ingredients and cook a local recipe. The UK isn't perhaps famous for it's food but there are plenty of great regional dishes. Perhaps a good excuse to head into Europe too to see what other nations have to offer :D

As I said above, I like your approach of cooking and your vids are great to watch. Beside I had some great meals in the UK (fish, meat...) and I can not understand people complaining about UK food. However travel to get some cooking inspiration is a great reason

I think many Brits have a great love of food and we take inspiration from everywhere, we love other cultures food and will happily embrace it. I think that is why indian food is such a favourite here.

Myself I have a real love for thai food and we cook a great deal of it when we are away in our van.

Why go to Italian restaurant in England when you are Italian? There are good and bad everywhere, some of the worst food I have eaten was in Paris.

Otherwise, it might be an excellent bat for some ballgame ;-)

Yep if the RidgeMonkey don't result in good food it can go for a self defence weapon.

You will get good and bad in any country, so don't write us off. It all depends on where you eat along with your personal tastes of course. :thumb

Wherever I've been worldwide - Bombay to Beijing - the full English breakfast has been admired.

So while Indian, Italian, French and Chinese cuisines compete for the dinner menu, the English dominate breakfasts. (Except in Scotland where it's rebranded the full Scottish breakfast - porridge made with water not milk would be more honest).

I've just been watching an old series of Jamie Oliver going round the UK cooking regional dishes. British food is fabulous! We get a bad press, and I'm not sure why. The only problem we have in our family is that because we cook such yummy food at home, often experimenting with new foods and recipes, pricey restaurants can sometimes be a little disappointing! You certainly get more bang for your buck if you cook it up yourself.

Matt, all camper recipes are welcomed. We Cobb a lot on campsites, and it makes the whole campsite smell wonderful (unless you are a vegetarian, possibly, to whom I apologise for the wonderful meaty aromas!).
