Cooking for Cwm Dyli Vacation Trip 2015

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the CUHWC trip to Cwm Dyli in Snowdonia. All crockery, cutlery, utensils, pots and pans are provided — the kitchen has a microwave oven, electric cooker and hobs. The club will supply cooking oil.

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 on [this day]' 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 (7th) evening. Finalise groups by Wednesday (8th) night so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.


Most people will arrive too late to cook in the bunkhouse this evening, and will instead stop for a takeaway en route, but those who do arrive in time for dinner can cook together.
