Camp meals should be more than just hot dogs and granola. This episode we talk to long time motorcycle travellers, Lisa & Simon Thomas, about their new book Dirty Dining and Ara Gureghian, a five star chef who's been living off his motorcycle for over a decade. They give some valuable tips on camp cooking especially when space and supplies are limited.
Simon and Lisa Thomas have been on the road for 14 years, travelling to many different countries and experiencing all kinds of cuisine. Inspired by world foods, Lisa has been conjuring up her own recipes, at times replicating the exotic flavours they’ve tasted, and also coming up with their own recipes with just the right ingredients. They’re about to launch a cookbook called “Dirty Dining - An Adventurer’s Cookbook. In this book, they’ve come up with a great mix of recipes, photography and tips for overland cooking.
Dirty Dining will be available for pre-order soon through Barnes & Noble and on Amazon. Check the 2ridetheworld website or facebook pages for updates.
Ara Gureghian is a five-star chef, trained in a culinary school in Switzerland. He’s owned various restaurants and a bakery, and has also been a personal chef. He’s spent over the last 11 years travelling the United States on his motorcycle with a side car and his pitbull dog, Spirit. Cooking remains one of Ara’s passions, and with all of his years of experience cooking for others and himself, what better person to turn to for some tips on whole food cooking in the wild.
On his website, Ara has a link to “One Pan Meals”, with some of his recipes available for sale by download. Ara’s idea of a One Pan Meal isn’t like throwing it all in to one pan, turning up the heat and hoping for the best. He talks about timing, and creating a full on meal in one pan. He’s also got some great tips on what tools he uses in the kitchen.
