Outdoor Cooking

As the sun continues to blaze Sheila Dillon looks at the ups and downs of Outdoor Cooking. Do you remember when only slightly unusual people went camping? Not any more. It's dead fashionable, thanks partly to music festival culture. It's also reasonably cheap - or can be - and of course the warmer summers help, along with all the new gadgets and toys you can buy for life under canvas. But what to eat? Are you an empty-the-whole-kitchen-into-the-car camper? Or an I'll-make-my-own-fire-or-die-in-the-process type? And is it lamb, barley and rosemary hotpot, or instant noodles all the way? We hear top tips from campers at the 7th Cornbury Music Festival. Meanwhile Simon Parkes visits the Amateur BBQ World Cup, and Sheila and food journalist Richard Johnson hang out in the back garden of Annie Bell, author of The Camping Cookbook, and marvel and drool as she produces gourmet dish after gourmet dish from her camping cooker. Jelly baby kebab anyone?
Producer Sukey Firth.
