[tongue in cheek] perhaps we should start an armchair cavers recipe book.  :greed:

Actually a good list of (vegetarian) exped recipes for feeding 30-40 people would probably be useful (particularly the quantities!)

Even simpler corned beef hash.

Tin Corned beef
2 tins baked beans

Mix in pan until meat has disintegrated and everything is bubbling. Served with boiled spuds or whatever carbohydates you prefer. When we're camping we use tinned spuds and cook them with the hash although you have to spend longer heating them through.

Serves 4

Rusted and ropy, dog-eared old copy.
Vintage and classic or just plain Jurassic:
all words to describe me.

Page 48-55, add miscellaneous meat If required.

Yes, highly recommended :thumbsup: They also use lightweight calorific ingredients where possible, so are well suited to expeditions. May well be best replacing the TVP with something a little more palatable for weekends in the UK though!

http://durmitor.yucpc.org.uk/reports.php is probably a better source of expedition info ;) Although that reminds me - there is a significant recent omission...  :-[

Perhaps 2014 and 2016 :smartass: could be added to the main YUCPC website too?

Stolen for my recipe stash... (currently the only thing in my recipe stash, but I've got until next Summer...)

I think there are three different recipes on the 2014 report. pg 63-65.

http://durmitor.yucpc.org.uk/reports/2014_report.pdf

from: http://durmitor.yucpc.org.uk/reports.php

and I'm sure there will be more from the 2016 report. One striking thing to notice from the 2013 report posted earlier is that they include references to 'new' things which they can find in the local supermarket. This "smartinfo" enables them to go lighterweight from the UK rather than relying on bringing UK food abroad.


When I joined them in 2010, we were going heavyweight with goods from the UK, which relies on drivers who can give up 4-5 weeks of their summer to the Expedition. MarkS was one of the "lucky" ones that drew the short straw.


It's ok if you've got a ready stock of people and cars to do the journey. but we had to buy the car for the job, then sell it on after and convince people they wanted to give up that amount of time to the expedition. Not an ideal situation, Many things were not perfect about my planning of the transport that year, but the expedition did learn from them by going with only three people in 2011  ;)
 And changing the planning of transport for future years (airports, routes, and vehicles).

The yucpc expo recipes also make heavy use of pressure cookers, due to both altitude and fuel saving. The recipes could easily be adapted though to remove the need for these on normal weekends away.
