The campsite is one of the most fun activities in the world. But it is an activity that requires a lot of preparation. You need to know how and with what to equip yourself to ensure full satisfaction. This is where most of those who plan to do it get discouraged. One of the most annoying puzzles is the cooking side. Unless it’s a fasting program, it’s imperative to be well equipped with a camper’s kitchen kit. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it is the quality of the entire campsite that will depend on it.
Who says kitchen necessarily means a stove
You would probably agree, a proper camping kit includes a camping stove. You can’t ignore this camping equipment if you want to eat hot during your trips. The wood stove allows you to stay natural and autonomous because it works with small wood and even with dry grass. There is also the alcohol stove (solid or liquid) which is very practical for family camping because it is very light and not bulky. For those who prefer high altitude camping, the most practical is the petrol/gasoline stove. It works at low temperatures. However, its handling requires some experience. Gas stoves are the most popular because they are the simplest. It is both economical and light. We can say that it is the camping stove par excellence. There is also the improved version of gas stove called “optimized gas stove” which offers a better performance (consumes half as much as the conventional gas stove). That said, it costs more.
Take only nestable kitchen utensils with you
Why nestable? Because you have to keep the space requirement to a minimum. Camping kitchen kits differ from other utensils in that their shapes are perfectly adapted to the conditions of the campsite. It is possible that all your kitchen equipment can fit in one bag (this is ideal). Often these utensils are sold as a ‘camping pack’ consisting of a frying pan, saucepan and kettle.
The choice of crockery
Dishes should be as ergonomic and light as possible. It is advisable to opt for titanium dishes, which are both strong and light, thanks to an alloy of aluminium and steel. Plastic crockery should be absolutely avoided if camping in the mountains. When the temperature is low, it can become brittle.
