Japanese food is my ultimate favorite in all the land. I could eat sushi and donburi forever. This recipe, modified from Adventure Dining Guide, tosses salmon on rice with seaweed and a dash of furikake. (This was also inspired by buying my nori sheets too small.) Like the frontcountry spring rolls, these bowls are completely modifiable to any palate. Salmon rice bowls are an easy meal with minimal cooking.
Camp food is, unfortunately, not high on my list of things to do well. It’s a little weird because I love eating and I love good food. My go-to dishes are usually pasta, stir fries, or if it’s been a long day, salami and cream cheese. Lately, I’ve been exploring different ideas for camping food, because why should I eat the same ol’ things when I’m out in the wilderness? I started racking my brain for some of my favorite home-cooked dishes that I could modify for camping. Spring rolls were the first thing to come mind.
Instant coffee gets a bad rap for tasting like dirt. But coffee doesn’t have to be terrible when you’re miles away from civilization. Founder and professional climber Matt Segal dreamed up the idea of good instant coffee while he was out in the Bugaboos. Alpine Start Coffee is here to change your mind.
I personally do not drink coffee—I think it all tastes like dirt, with the exception of affogatos. I enlisted the help of several friends to do some coffee taste testing for me on some recent backpacking trips.
Country Archer reached out to me earlier this year with some snacks to fuel my adventures. Obviously, I’m never one to turn down food because lemme tell ya, I get real hangry. They seemed like a good alternative to Epic or Tanka bars which I find to be a wee bit pricy, especially when I buy them from the climbing gym.
After a long day of climbing or hiking, cooking is usually the last thing on my mind. I’ve been known to scarf down a backpacking meal or heat up a Fishpeople Seafood pouch to avoid the hassle of prepping and cleaning.
Great Grub Camp Food makes gourmet camp food easy, without the hassle. Each entree has the convenience of a freeze dried meal with a little extra that’s more than just boiling hot water.
