Cooking for Keswick trip, 9th-11th March

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for this weekend’s trip to the Naddle Valley near Keswick in the Lake District.

The bunkhouse, Causeway Foot Farm Camping Barn, has a well fitted kitchen with 5 burner gas cooker, dining tables & chairs, fridge, microwave, and toaster. The sink has hot & cold running water and there is a selection of pans, crockery and cutlery.

Click edit at the top to change the text (you’ll need to be logged in to your account on the website first – click here to register if you don’t have one). You can either suggest a meal idea or join one of the existing ones and you’re obviously also welcome to sort yourself out (move your name to Independent). Please remove your name from the Not yet signed-up for meal list too once you’re in a group or have decided to cook alone. The person who suggests the meal is responsible for arranging the ingredients – everyone else in the group should bring money on the trip to pay for their share, and expect to help with the preparation and washing up.


Meal suggestions by Tuesday evening. Finalise groups by Wednesday evening so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.


On Friday and Sunday evenings, we'll stop at a takeaway, so bring money or a packed dinner. The time and location of the stops is up to the drivers and may be quite late, so eat something before we leave or bring snacks if you think you'll be hungry.
