Welcome to the official website of the North West Region of the Camping and Caravanning Club.
CALLING ALL CAMPSITE COOKS…
Do you enjoy cooking on a campsite? Can you rustle up a camping-friendly feast on a gas stove or a barbecue? Would you like to win a fantastic bundle of Cadac prizes for yourself and your region/section including a top of the range barbecue and accessories? Then listen up!
After the success and fun of 2016’s trial Cook-Off at NFOL, the Club is launching Club Campsite Cook of the Year 2017 – in association with CADAC, the Club’s Eat Local sponsor – and want you to take part.
All regions and sections have been invited to hold heats in order to find their best campsite cooks to enter into the Club-wide competition.
To find our most enthusiastic, talented and keen campsite cooks, The North West Region will be holding our own heat at our Regional Meet at Arley Hall. The winner of our regional event will win a Cadac Carri Chef Barbecue worth £185.
In August 2017, all region/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 4.30 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.
So, how do you get involved?
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 Eat Local 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!
We hope this site, will give you information about whats happening in the world of camping and caravanning throughout the North West.
