Top Tips for cooking the perfect meal

Tip 1 – Have fun with your cooking
Cooking should always be a fun and enjoyable time of your life. Knowing that you are about to cook yourself some delicious food can be a very enjoyable task. Whether you are out in the garden or deep in the countryside, remember to try different techniques when campfire cooking.

Tip 2 – Choose a suitable environment
Although fun should be a huge factor when cooking, safety always needs to come first. Cooking in the park with friends when other people are around is never a good idea. If there are young children running around near your campfire.

Tip 3 – Knowing what food to cook
Safety is an important aspect of every campfire. Ensure the foods you are cooking are not dripping with fat. This can cause the flames on the fire to flare up, which could ultimately lead to people being in danger. If you need to cook these types of foods, ensure that you use a dutch oven as this will prevent any splatters.

Tip 4 – Let the youngsters help
If you are taking your children on your camping trip, allowing them to get involved is not always the worst idea. Although they may not be experienced at cooking a campfire they will be able to learn by watching what the adults are doing. Assigning children small jobs such as wrapping food in tin foil or helping look for more wood can allow children to be more confident around any campfire.
