How to have great meals despite limited food storage, refrigeration, water, power, cooking space, and gear
Any adventure is better with great meals. But the challenge is how to serve them up when you have limited cookware, water, electricity, storage space, and even counter space. Where do you even start?
Right here. Adventures and great food aren't mutually exclusive. Seriously, Carolyn has been preparing good meals in less than ideal conditions most of her life, first with extended tent camping trips, and now for over 14 years on a boat.
In this free course, she'll teach you how to have delicious everyday meals no matter what you're doing.

Very helpful thank you Carolyn. It's particularly helpful to know what fresh food will store well without refrigeration and to be reminded how many things come in boxes or cans for longer life!
What a brilliant easy to follow and very helpful course. Carolyn has written this in a logical easy to follow way. Packed with useful and helpful tips. For me it was the Keto recipes that have really been the most helpful.
This is going to be our first long cruise from the Maritimes down to the Carribean. Ways to minimize galley equipment, pest control methods, and food storage advice are all helpful. Promotes products, but does review them which is good.
