The essence of the competition is to demonstrate skill and creativity in producing a simple campsite meal beyond burgers and sausages.

We are asking entrants to send us their recipe for one main course meal.  This meal must be a camping-friendly recipe, one that is possible to prepare and cook at your pitch on a bbq grill or gas stove. (No ovens, microwaves or electric appliances allowed)

The actual cooking time (not including prep) must be 30 minutes or under.

The recipes will be judged on suitability for campsite cooking, creativity, and in particular the judges will be looking for a meal that embraces the spirit of our EatLocal campaign, whether it’s using a fresh local, seasonal ingredient, incorporates a regional cheese, beer or fruit or perhaps just taking inspiration from a regional dish or flavour.

From easy but tasty one pan suppers, exciting salads, vegetarian feast, a fabulous fish dish, great grilled meats to pasta with a twist…. anything goes, we are looking to be inspired.

In August 2017, all regional / section winners’ recipes will be judged by the Eat Local team at HQ and eight winners invited to take part in the exciting cook-off final at the Cadac stand, NFOL at 4.30pm on Saturday 26th August, 2017.  The overall winner will be presented with a Club Cook of the Year trophy and a fantastic patio barbecue.  The winning recipe will also be published in the Eat Local pages of the magazine.

There are fantastic runner-up prizes too.
