The Kitchen Sink: Gourmet Camping Part 2

I confess.

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.


  1. Love these cooking utensils! What a fun way to add some extra color to my kitchen. I love that they have the holes in the handle so that I can hang them up or put them in the container. I feel good using them as they are BPA free and they hold up well to heat. Great opportunity to throw out your old miscellaneous ones and replace them with these colorful ones!

  3. Ensure you have a remark your nourishment on before you travel. A few campgrounds don't offer flame broils or offer barbecues don't look clean so bringing your own can spare you time and vitality.

  4. What's more, obviously, there are substantially littler fridges that are less kitchen appliances but rather more they are comforts for the workplace, apartments or recreational vehicles and so forth.more information

  5. Organizing your space efficiently is important since larger appliances will take more room. You will also have to establish a budget for your kitchen remodeling project.

  7. Camping!

  9. Camping would be for the more experienced camper and obviously, for individuals who know how to kayak as well as kayak.
