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.
Just about to tuck into Beef Teriyaki from a Tasmanian freeze-dried manufacturer, Campers Pantry. So far their meals have been exceptional. Ming the Cameraman and our resident vegetarian,, also reckons every meal has been a stand-out from other brands. Go you guys!"
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.
A LOT of my life is spent outdoors. Mountaineering, trekking, climbing, paddling, biking and on photoshoots in remote wilderness locations. For all of this, having access to yummy, healthy and practical food is essential. Campers Pantry is my trusted go-to choice for lightweight and dependable adventure meals. I love that the recipes are super tasty, but also made from locally produced Australian ingredients. AJ and the Campers Pantry team are total legends and always get behind the outdoor community. Cheers!
As I have ventured from one extreme to the other, Campers Pantry has had my back right from the get go. From keeping me full and cozy during my Tassie Winter trek, to keeping me strong and nourished as I charged through the MacDonnell Ranges in the Northern Territory, Campers Pantry has been my top lightweight and nutritious choice. I love that the company takes great care in quality, grows & produces locally, and supports incredible athletes in the field. Looking forward to diving into another pack of Moroccan Pork and Vermicelli Pudding during my next big trek.

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...
