A week’s snow camping on top of Australia: five hungry athletes from The North Face, five hard working film crew and a ton of gear. As cook and guide, this was going to be a logistical nightmare for me. Choosing Campers Pantry freeze-dried meals and meal makers turned out to be the best decision I could have made. The long days burning calories at a frenetic pace left little time to satisfy massive appetites. But Campers Pantry made it easy - lightweight, delicious, nutritious and a cinch to prepare.
We had a choice of freeze-dried meals on my South Pole expedition and a mix of brands. Campers Pantry was easily my favourite and the only one that looked and tasted like real food.
To say the meals are nutritious whilst being yummy is an understatement. They fueled and sustained my 7,000 daily calorie need to enable me to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean. My fav's included Creamed Rice Pudding, Cinnamon Rice Pudding, Lamb Casserole, Tuna Mornay and Spaghetti Bolognese.

We head into the bush with Harry from Fire to Fork to try our hand at a sous-vide in a cooler. How to Sous-vide in a cooler while camping. Firstly this was not a hard cook at all, it's dead easy. Normally served in swanky restaurants or at home by keen cooks to impress guests, it’s a failsafe way to not overcook your cut if meat. Harry from Fire to Fork is no stranger to cooking over the fire and luckily for me, he’s not a vegetarian...
