    What do RVers Eat?

    A common misconception that plagues RVers is that they are limited to canned foods or campfire foods.  Now don't get me wrong, I love a good s'more, but that's not all we eat.

    With an RV you get all the comforts of home with you on the road, this includes a full kitchen.  That means you get a full size fridge, stoves, an oven, and counter space to take with you wherever you take your travels to.  And just because you're traveling doesn't mean you have to sacrifice freshness.  When you're out on the road be sure to take advantage of seasonal Farmer's Markets!

    If you're looking to elevate your culinary prowess while RVing, here are a few tips!

    Gaucho Grilling

    Ever heard of "Gaucho Grilling"? Well "Gauchos" are Argentinian cowboys, the epitome of ruggedness.  However this doesn't mean they didn't know how to
    cook delicious meals using fresh and basic ingredients. Gaucho Grilling utilizes fires and time to add depth to dishes which otherwise might be lacking in the simple ingredients it uses. The most famous advocate for this type of cooking is world renown chef, Francis Mallmann. Be sure to check out his Butterflied Chicken a la Parrilla with Chanterelles, in which he lays out how to prepare a juicy, flavor packed dish that will be sure to impress your neighboring campers.


    Another tip to elevate your cooking skills on the road is actually a new culinary tool called the "Joule".  The Joule is a small tool that you can plug into any socket in your RV that provides an easy way to sous-vide any dish.  Sous-vide is a technique that works where food is placed in a air tight bag and cooked in a uniformly heated bath of water.  After the food reaches the perfect temperature you can choose to finish of by searing, frying, or baking it to give some more flavor.  This technique ensures perfectly cooked food each time without fail.

    Can't Forget the Dessert!

    After grilling your gaucho chicken or even searing that sous-vide steak you'll want the perfect dish to end your meal.  Here's a twist on a classic dessert, Cinnamon Rolls! Check out Almost Super Mocampfire-cinnamon-roll-ups-5856m's recipe for these mouth watering delicacies.  She makes it super simple, using only four ingredients.

    • A can of crescent rolls
    • sugar
    • cinnamon
    • skewers

    These are super simple to prepare, and even easier to eat!

    RVers get the best of both worlds when it comes to cooking.  We can enjoy good old campfire foods on some nights and on others we can cook up a fancy dinner you'd serve at one of your dinner parties back home. Do you have any RV Cooking tips? Share below in the comments.
