A fish in foil

This recipe is a tribute to our beautiful Vendée and its coastline . How to cook while camping in Vendée, not to mention making fish at least once? And it’s very simple, with this easy-to-make recipe.


Take a whole fish (like a sea bream or sea bass), season it with salt, pepper, lemon, and a drizzle of olive oil.


Add some fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary. Wrap everything in a sheet of aluminum foil and place it on the coals for about 20 minutes.


The result ? A juicy and fragrant fish that goes perfectly with a glass of local white wine.

An express chili con carne

For a touch of exoticism , let’s try a chili con carne, easy to prepare even while camping.


In a large saucepan, brown onions and garlic, then add minced meat.


Once the meat is cooked, add crushed tomatoes, red beans, corn, cumin, chili powder, and let it simmer.


Serve this comforting dish with rice or fresh bread. It is an ideal dish for sharing friendly moments around the fire.

Potatoes stuffed over a wood fire

A simple but always appreciated dish, stuffed potatoes are perfect for a camping dinner.


Choose large potatoes, cook them in the coals until they are tender.


Cut a hat, hollow them out slightly and garnish them with a mixture of grated cheese , previously grilled bacon , and spring onions.


Replace the cap and wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil. Place them back in the embers so that the cheese melts.


Serve with a green salad for a delicious and satisfying dinner.

Chocolate bananas for delicious cooking while camping

To finish in style, what could be better than a simple and delicious dessert? Because cooking while camping also means treating yourself to dessert !


Take bananas , split them (without going all the way), and slide squares of chocolate inside. Wrap the bananas in aluminum foil and place them on the coals for a few minutes.
