For many people, cooking and eating in the great outdoors is one of the most enjoyable parts of camping. We've put together some top camping cooking tips to help you rustle up some al-fresco cuisine on your holiday.
The good news is there's a wide range of camping cooking equipment available to make outdoor cooking much easier - it's a far cry from sticking a can of beans in the campfire!
You don't have to be a Michelin-starred chef to cook tasty food when camping. Outdoor cooking is all about simplicity and fresh flavours, and with the wide range of camping cooking equipment available these days, you're not limited to beans on toast!
The key is preparation. Before leaving home, plan which meals you'd like to cook and prep the ingredients first. Then pack them in zip-lock bags ready to throw into the pan.
A warm summer's day is the perfect excuse for a picnic and a camping trip will be one long picnic! But it's not easy to keep your food cold on a summer's day, especially on a long car journey.
But don't worry. At Halfords, our range of coolboxes and coolbags will keep your food cool in the warm weather. Whether it's a short trip home from the supermarket, heading out for the day or on a short camping trip, we can help.
As well as standard coolboxes, we stock electric coolboxes which plug into your car's 12v socket and you'll also find a range of coolbags, which are ideal when space is limited.
Our coolboxes come in a range of sizes so you'll need to give some thought to what you need. Have a mooch around our site and use Click and Collect to pick your items up in store, or spend over £30 and we'll deliver them for free.
