Glamping 2.0

Glamping 2.0

Camping has come a long way in recent years but last weekend a group of friends took it to a whole new level.

“Do you do meals on wheels?” read the initial enquiry. Alex had attended my crowd funding launch party back in September and wanted to know what I could bring to Far Peak camp site.

With a mix of vegetarians and meat eaters we agreed upon a broadly Turkish meal and after many hours toasting and grinding sesame seeds, mixing marinades and making dough, on Saturday afternoon I packed up my fire pit and headed out into the countryside.

While I was there to cook for the friends, fire pits have a magnetic pull and I soon had a group of people sat around the fire pulling bread dough to make their flat breads. It was a gorgeous day and with a bar set up under a gazebo it struck me that Alex’s idea had been one of pure genius. Once the breads were cooked, food flowed for the next two and a half hours culminating in sleepy children in pyjamas curled up on their parents’ laps to toast marshmallows.

Alex and his friends ate:

Flat breads with baba ganoush and a butter bean puree

Lamb kebabs, orange chicken kebabs, pomegranate halloumi and falafel with tabouleh

Pistachio and rose baklava, poached figs and orange blossom marshmallows
