In this video, I will be going through my camp kitchen – the cooking gear I take with me on overnight trips and canoe camps. Everything I need to prepare and cook tasty meals can be carried in a 50 litre barrel, which then becomes a worktop, table, wash stand, organiser, larder and chair in camp. The barrel is attached to a pack frame for easy and comfortable carrying. I hope this video will help to answer some of your questions on the kit I use for cooking – from pots, pans and kettles, to grills, utensils and food containers.

I hope you enjoy the video.

Thanks for watching!
