This idea is genius. In fact, it has changed my whole perception of how to travel long term with regards to food preparation. In double fact, I claim that this is the perfect solution to cooking while on the road because it is lightweight and cheap.
Last summer, I decided to cycle across Europe with some friends and for the most part, we skipped for our food. We had two requirements for how to cook our food – we needed a way to cook that was both cheap and light. I stumbled across a beer can stove on Tom’s Bike Trip and then put it into action. It was genius and I can’t recommend it enough.
Leah, one of my wonderful travel companions (who goes by the online name of The Vegetarian Traveller) has now written a recipe / do it yourself guide book, entitled The Beer Can Cook Book (which I think is a fantastic idea). If you are going on a long term trip, I recommend you download and read it – it might just change the way you do things. Best of all, it’s completely free and all recipes are vegetarian – useful when you are on the road and it is warm outside. Click here or the image to go to the download page. Happy reading – happier eating.
