The Waki Way Camping Recipes

Cooking while camping is trickier than at home with limited equipment, lack of refrigeration, hard-to-come-by ingredients, or inclement British weather... With all that against you it's all too easy to end up with the same dried ready meals or terrible takeaways - until now! 

We've compiled a collection of our favourite real recipes that we have prepared whilst camping. We even divided them by what cooking equipment you need so whether you have one burner or two, a  full kitchen, or just a camp fire -we're sure you'll find something delicious you and your companions will love... 


Check out our Kitchen Kit page for our favourite kitchen and camping products. We also have what we term 'Mobile Homesteading' recipes for how to preserve your farm shop or foraged finds and generally make the most of what you have... Thanks for visiting!

Oven / Dutch Oven camping recipes

All of the recipes on this page require baking so you will need a gas or halogen oven in your camper or caravan, or for the dedicated camper they could be adapted for use with a Dutch oven in the embers of the camp fire/BBQ.

Camping recipes that go hand in hand with the smoky flavours of the camp fire or humble BBQ.

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
