Outdoor Chef
Degree of Difficulty

Easy-the recipe calls for only a few ingredients and timing is straightforward.

Moderate-the recipe requires more than one process (e.g., the making of a sauce), so timing is more of an issue.

Complex-the recipe requires the help of more than one outdoor chef and some basic cooking skills are required.

Number of Pots or Pans

The reference for pots or pans is only for the recipe. If you are serving rice or a vegetable, you will need an additional burner if you're using pocket burners that clamp onto the fuel tank and not a Coleman type stove. Recipes for salads, sauces or dressings that can be mixed in a small bowl, not requiring a burner, will have no pot.

Timing

15 min: the recipe should take 15 minutes or less to prepare and serve

30 min: the recipe should take 30 minutes or less to serve and may include preparation time such as marinating

60 min: the recipe likely includes several steps including marinating or sauce preparation before serving

Vegetarian

People define themselves as "vegetarian" in several ways. Some don't eat meat, but will eat fish or eggs and cheese. Others won't eat any products that come from an animal that can look you in the eye. Vegans will neither eat nor wear any product that comes from an animal. My vegetarian recipes exclude dishes containing butter, eggs, meat or cheese that are important for the success of the recipe. But if tofu can be easily substituted for the meat or if other vegetables can be added, olive oil substituted for the butter and the cheese eliminated-or if the recipe is already vegetarian-you will find a carrot beside the recipe.

Where’s the Garlic?

One of the frustrations in dealing with food on my kayak trips over the years has been in knowing where to find things in dry bags. Life is much easier for canoeists and rafters if you transport food in a plastic bin or cooler. This became evident to me when I was paddling the Bowron Lakes with my longtime friends, Michael and Don. Michael carried his food in a large, rectangular, insulated bag and when he unzipped the large top, it was pretty easy for him to find what he was looking for. We shared a campsite another night with three men who carried their food in a large plastic bin. Canoeists and rafters using dry bags, as some do especially when traveling in bear country, will suffer the same frustrations as kayakers. You can’t hang a plastic tub from a tree! While a dry bag is great to stuff in a hatch or a cockpit, or lash under the thwart, digging down to the bottom of one to retrieve an onion or package of cheese and then having to repack the bag is not only annoying, it’s one of the main reasons that foods get banged up and damaged, thus shortening their traveling life.

I’ve tried several methods of packing and still have some frustrations, but here are a few suggestions to help you to remember where you’ve stored things. I have variously organized food by meals, by fresh, longer lasting, longest lasting and by food types. So far I have come up with a hybrid of these three; the method that works best for me. You will probably have to take several trips and experiment to find what method of organization works best for you. The duration of the trip is also a factor. Certainly, if you’re taking a tinned ham that you have no intention of eating until the last day, put it in the bottom of a bag and forget about it. Besides, it’s heavy. You don’t want it squashing or damaging other foods. But then you will encounter some of the ingredients you pack to accompany this last dinner along the way and will have to dig through a repacked bag. Therein lies the frustration. Rodney Badger, a seasoned canoeist and river rafter who plans the meals for many of his extensive trips, uses the ‘meal’ organization method. He takes dry bags on his canoe or rafting trips labeled “Breakfast,” “Lunch,” and “Dinner” and has a fourth bag for condiments. He even labels his meals “L1,” “D2,” and so forth. But he also most often travels with a larger group than I do. So, the size of the group is also a consideration when organizing the food stores. The outdoor chef should be in charge even if others are enlisted to help with meal preparations.

If you are taking spices or other small amounts of ingredients that you will use for only one recipe, combine them at home and put them into the plastic container from a 35 mm roll of film or a similar small container. This also works for liquids such as red wine or balsamic vinegar, if they’re also only being taken to make one recipe. Make sure that you pack the little container in a zip lock bag with the other ingredients to make the recipe; otherwise you’ll never find it!

Some of these suggestions may seem obvious, but bear mentioning.

      1. Take dry bags of different colors and label them.


        2. Pack your frozen meat in the bottom of one bag. It will be gone within the first two days, so you clearly will have to reorganize this bag. Pack cheese packets on top and some of the longer lasting vegetables on top of the cheese. Pack the salad greens on the top of the bag. The meat, while it’s frozen, will help to keep the other foods cool.


          3. Pack similar foods in the same bag. Pack all the dry ingredients in one bag. If you’ve packaged zip lock bags with Bisquick, dried milk or the dry ingredients for other recipes, make sure that each bag is labeled in indelible ink, with instructions on a slip of paper inside for completing the recipe. Or, write the instructions directly on the baggie, again, using indelible ink. This includes dried soups, pastas and sauces.



            4. Pack the hardy vegetables such as onions and cabbage at the bottom of a bag, carrots and cucumber, vertically to the sides. Pack the middle with other vegetables such as peppers, zucchini, herbs, garlic, shallots and such. Pack the container of fresh mushrooms or cherry tomatoes on the top.



              5. Put the eggs on the top of a bag. Plastic egg containers to pack


                6 or 12 eggs can be found at camping outfitters.


                6. If you enjoy a glass of wine, buy a boxed wine. Remove the box and transport the bladder. Double bag it-you’ll just have to buy another one and drink it at home before the trip! Slit the empty bag and remove the spout. Slip it over the full one and use duct tape to close the slits. These bags can also be purchased at some shops that sell camping or paddling gear. Then you can fill it with the wine of your choosing.

              In the summer, Leslie and I enjoy a glass of cider. This should be bought in the two liter plastic containers available, not bottles. At the end of the trip, when the plastic bottle is empty, it can be crushed. You don’t want empty glass bottles clunking around in your boat. Port or sherry, for restoring spirits on cold, miserable days, should be poured into a Platypus® bag for easy transport. If you enjoy a splash of rum or cognac in your coffee, bring a small metal flask. If you like beer, you’ll just have to deal with the empty cans. Make sure that you rinse them well, crush them, and put them in a sealed plastic bag. As the trip progresses and you have enjoyed your fresh meat and some of your other wonderful taste treats, you will likely find yourself reorganizing your food stores to make for efficient packing. This is just the way it is on a paddling holiday.

              Where’s My Whisk?
              Utensils

              While the chef needs the ingredients to make the wonderful meals happen that have been planned for the trip, he or she also needs the tools to make it all work. I have laid out my list for the essentials to pack and other highly useful items to carry if you want to bake or be a little more luxurious with your food plans on your paddling holiday.

              THE BASICS

              • camp stove(s), fuel
              • lighter, waterproof matches
              • skillet-8-10 inch skillet with as heavy a bottom as you can accommodate, preferably with folding handle
              • pots-stackable, with lids, attachable handle
              • small wooden or hard plastic chopping board
              • small wire whisk
              • spatula-with or without folding handle
              • good, sharp knife
              • large spoon
              • tongs
              • plates, cutlery, bowls, mugs
              • squares of aluminum foil to wrap up cut vegetables, cheese
              • extra zip lock bags
              • a bag for garbage
              • biodegradable soap
              • dish sponge and dish towels
              • can opener, if necessary

              IMPORTANT EXTRAS

              • grater-small or rotary grater
              • small rolling pin
              • slotted spoon
              • Italian coffee press
              • shatterproof plastic wine glasses-the stem unscrews and tucks into the cup
              • sheet of plastic 14-18 inches square for rolling out dough
              • collapsible steamer to insert in a pot for steamed vegetables
              • collapsible reflector oven or Dutch oven
              • heat diffuser
              • wok
              • oyster shucker-if there’s a possibility of gathering oysters

              Although all of the recipes in this guide include measurements for ingredients, you should be able to estimate or “eyeball” a quarter cup, a teaspoon, a gram and so forth. Measuring spoons and cups may be helpful to have along, but an experienced paddling chef should have the knowledge at hand to make the meals without having to measure all of the ingredients. Practice some recipes that appeal to you at home, so that you can prepare the meal easily in camp. Take your mug and your spoon and determine how much each holds. You really don’t want to be reading a recipe card and fussing with measuring cups at your campsite!

              Disasters of a Novice Camp Chef

              Since we began paddling three years ago, Leslie and I and our two young daughters have been expanding our kayaking experiences and are now confident that we can undertake a multi-day trip on our own. We will circumnavigate Gambier Island, heading out from Grafton Bay on Bowen Island. Brigade Bay, on the east coast of Gambier, is our destination for the first night. Rounding the southeastern tip of Gambier, we feel a palpable change in emotions. Urban stresses slip away with every paddle stroke in the dark, glassy waters and our time-driven world is given over to Nature’s agenda. We will be simple travelers along the way.

              Our destination is Brigade Bay, part way up the east coast of Gambier. A small grassy area behind the storm-swept logs on the beach provides an ideal site for our first night’s camp. We pitch the tent and begin to prepare dinner. Fresh green salad and bacon were priorities on our grocery list when planning the food for this trip. The green salad is tied up and transported in a Safeway bag. Even with this short transport the salad greens are looking rather beaten up. We salvage a decent salad on this first evening but are left with a rapidly deteriorating bag of bruised greens. There are few put in points on the west-coast of Gambier and many log booms are tethered to the shore. We asked permission and were granted the opportunity to camp at a deserted Catholic youth summer camp on the second night. The grassy volleyball court was a perfect site to pitch our tent, overlooking the sea and the caretaker’s cabin.

              The following morning, we are determined to have bacon and English muffins for breakfast. Our cooking stove is a large, metal, two-burner propane stove, more suitable for a canoe or camping trip, not a kayak excursion. It has been tucked in the front of my cockpit-the only place it could be stored-as it surely would not fit into a hatch. Discovering that we’ve forgotten our frying pan, and with our inexperience in outdoor cooking, we decide to put the bacon strips directly on the grill of the camp stove. As the fat drips down and is ignited by the flames, we soon have a grand fire blazing. Turning off the propane and clamping the lid on the stove quickly smothers the flames on this culinary disaster. The charred, black remnants of the bacon are consigned to the Safeway bag along with the wilted lettuce.

              My Christmas present from Leslie the following December was an efficient, pocketsized Camping Gaz burner. It has been my kitchen companion ever since. A zip lock bag of Romaine lettuce, other hardy greens or a resealable bag of mixed greens will last for several days. We now take commercially prepared, precooked bacon strips that need no refrigeration, take only a minute to reheat and leave no fat. Gambier Island, Howe Sound Summer 1997
