Hello and welcome to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Outdoor Eating app.
Introduced by Mat Follas, 2009 Masterchef winner, the DofE have joined forces with CookStuff and Parragon Books to create a mobile app, exclusively for the iphone, featuring 80 recipes for everyone who enjoys the great outdoors.
Relevant for backpackers, campers or family days out the app is about introducing new and old favourite recipes which are ideal for outdoor eating, providing simple ways to liven up a meal whether it’s cooked over an open fire or portable ring burner.
The app allows users to filter recipes providing something for everyone, whether it’s a main meal or snack, or a vegetarian or meat dish, or requires refrigeration or not, or can be prepared in 10 minutes or less!
Furthermore the app filters can separate out recipes specifically for backpacking as clearly space, weight and the ability to keep things cold are more important for this type of camping.
Other features of the app allow you to store your favourite recipes, prepare a day planner and download a shopping list in the ‘My Stuff’ area. And then in ‘Extras’ there’s loads of really useful information on key bits of kitchen equipment to take, some simple food basics to liven up meals and a conversion table if you have forgotten your weighing scales!
We’ve added a Facebook and Twitter feed to find out what recipes you really like or don’t!
