Scandinavian Outdoor delivers backpacking stoves, water filters and other essential gear. By putting a bit of effort into your outdoor cooking you can really boost the whole experience. After all, pretty much anything tastes better outdoors.
Freeze dried foods are option number one for long journeys. They are light weight and pack down small.
The range of tastes is huge and each brand has its own fans. Most freeze dried foods are prepared by simply adding hot water to the pouch, mixing well and letting sit. The food can then be eaten straight out of the bag or, if you prefer the aesthetics, from a plate.
