I don't travel light.
My mother tells me I remind her of her mother, who, mom claims, would take everything but the kitchen sink when she went camping.
Well, I have one-upped grandma. I do bring the kitchen sink.
I am a chef, after all. And even in the wild, or the not so wild as this state park was, I have to have enough of my tools there to be able to throw down some great meals.
So here's my set up.
This is a Cabela's camp kitchen. And this all folds up to 34" x 7.5" x 20" and fits into a nice carrying case.
Here to the basic structure, I've added not one, but two camp stoves. It just doesn't seem possible to cook on only two burners, so I go for four.
The kitchen sink I mentioned? It's under the center black surface, which can be removed. But, to tell you the truth, it's not the easiest to use, so I just use it for additional storage.
Of course when I'm camping, I bring a small knife kit with cooking utensils, and a small spice kit as well. And a cutting board or two. I also bring a few nesting bowls and prep bowls. And some old cooking pans. A cast iron skillet--I wouldn't go camping without one.
I haven't yet devised the perfect dish washing scenario. But the double dishpan method seems to work until I find a better solution.
Enough about the kitchen. What you want to know is what comes out of the kitchen. I'll tell you more of that in the next post.
