You can prepare our easy camping recipes with a small gas stove, a barbecue or even an open fire. You won’t need much when it comes to kitchen equipment: a medium-sized skillet, a saucepan, and a wooden spoon will go a long way in helping (but don’t forget plates and cutlery!).

Do as much preparation as you can at home to make life easier; if you’re feeding a crowd, cook a comfort vegetarian chili, which you can easily reheat once you’ve pitched in the perfect spot. You can also make a batch of sweets to keep taking long walks: think granola bars, banana bread, or flapjacks.
