      My kitchen

      March 19 in Portugal ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

      So here's a quick overview of my kitchen that actually allows a surprisingly high standard on the go :)

      - The stove consists of a 240g gas canister plus a small Campingaz burner that fits on top. It works really well and the canister can be good for around 10 dinners and some coffees/teas. The problem with these combos is that depending on where you go, you may have difficulty finding the matching gas canister given the burner fitting mechanism (I believe there are at least two). My burner broke and I had a really tough time finding another one. Decathlon in Portugal either had a burner that did not fit my canister and no matching canister or a burner that was way too big. I finally found a replacement at Leclerc.
      - A cup, quite necessary to offer decent coffee & tea experience which the little foldable ones don't do in my opinion. Also acts as a container into which you can stuff things that should not get squashed.
      - Swiss army knife, no explanation needed
      - Two part cooking pots are great as they provide a container for a bunch of other kitched related things that should not be lying or flying around nor get squashed too much. One pot is bigger than the other one so you can use one to cook some pasta and the other one to prepare the sauce or salad/veggies inside. I use them to grill thin pieces of meat or even a burger. Inside we have (yes, this actually all fits into the two pots):
      = Olive oil as a base for grilling the meat, prepare a simple salad or simply mix with some salt and dip bread into.
      = Vinegar for salads
      = Sugar for coffee/tea
      = Salt
      = Pepper (not on the photo as I forgot it this time)
      = Lighter
      = Washing sponge and liquid
      = One or two sets of tissues, also prevents other things to shuffle around while offroad
      = Tea & coffee bags
      = Soup in a bag & pesto, along with some pasta I always have on the bottom of the luggage in case I get stuck somewhere and need to camp without being able to go to the store. Or sometimes I just fancy pasta with pesto or a soup.
      = Spoon and fork (I used sporks in the past and they broke every single time)
      - What is not on the photo and is the first time I brought with me is the foldable chair. I will never go on a trip without it! It is just so priceless to be able to sit back, relax, eat your dinner and drink a cup of tea. Or read the newspaper in the morning. Can't praise it enough!

      What I miss and should probably bring along next time is a small wooden board that I can use for cutting meat or vegetables and to serve prepared pieces of meat and be able to cut it (you can't cut in a teflon pot).

      Voila, and a little Jamie Oliver can be born within each of us!

      PS: A great thanks goes to my buddy Domen who I copied most of the ideas from. He is such a hedonist when it comes to outdoor cooking :)
