A beautiful freshly baked rustic bloomer and no knife. Sound familiar? This is the Outdoor Adventure Guide on outdoor eats

Here’s how it goes. Lob a load of kit into your backpack or the car (or campervan if you’re lucky) on the hunt for outdoor adventures. You’ve got enough waterproof gear to protect the population of Swindon from a monsoon, three rolls of duct tape (just in case) and the all-important bottle opener. What more do you need for a sojourn in the wilderness?

You haven’t given much thought to the tricky issue of nutrition so you swing by a supermarket (preferably a massive one so you can buy a cooler bag whilst you’re at it) and purchase the essentials – beer; a huge pack of bacon; tea bags; beans with sausages; unsliced bread (obviously); and a disposable BBQ. Sorted.
