Cooking for Selside, November 2017

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for this weekend’s trip to Selside, in the Yorkshire Dales.

The kitchen is fully kitted out with pots, pans, plates etc, along with a large cooker, fridge, microwave and large toaster.

Cooking protocol on this trip

  • Cooking on this trip is going to be a little different from past trips (if you’ve been with us before) for we aim to cook Christmas dinner!
  • The club will provide crackers and turkey.
  • All the other dishes should be provided by you, and the cost will be pooled and divided between everyone (so please bring some cash).
  • You don’t have to volunteer to do something, but since it’s a small trip, it would be good to split the work between everyone.
  • There’s a list of suggested dishes to bring below, but this is by no means prescriptive! If you want to show off your family/country’s speciality, go for it! If someone’s already cooking your favoured item, sign up for it too, and we can see whose is best!
  • Of course, you don’t have to take part in Christmas dinner; you can sign up to be independent instead, but note that we can’t have loads of people all running round the kitchen cooking independently.

Finalise dish allocations by Wednesday evening so everyone knows how much to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping and prepare the dish.
