Here is a recipe from Judy Kim where you pan-fry some of the ready-made stuffed pasta parcels (like ravioli) that you can buy really cheaply in the supermarkets. These pasta packets store really well so are a great standby to keep in the campervan. Enjoy…
Yay, good news at last! We made some really good progress on converting our Vivaro campervan, ‘Big Red’, at a DIY campervan converters meetup in the New Forest in March. We had been feeling stuck for a while but, with the help of the Dorset/Hampshire/Sussex Self-Build Get Together Facebook group, we were able to get some of the more scary things done like, putting a solar vent in the roof and cutting a hole in the side of the van for the hook-up panel. And the great thing is that this has now given us the confidence to try more of the DIY work ourselves and we can see how to do some of the trickier parts as we have our ‘converters eye’ switched on now.

So when I got the chance to do a ‘Taste of Spain’ cookery course at Vaughan’s Cookery School, I jumped at the chance and hoped that there would be some ideas I could adapt for campervan recipes.

You find me in a defiant mood at the moment, which may lead to disaster, but I have just had enough of trying to find subcontractors who can help us with our campervan build. I have no idea how we are going to make this happen but, sod it, we’ll do it ourselves!

We got our Vivaro panel van (who is called ‘Big Red’) back in July and it is now October and we have barely started the conversion. So, what happened…?

I have to confess that, after learning about Bannock Bread from the winner of my campervan recipe competition, I am now a little bit obsessed with it and finding out all the ways you can make this simple but tasty, frying pan bread.

Here is the winning recipe from my campervan recipe competition – it’s Bannock Bread.
I have to admit I hadn’t heard of it before but, apparently, Bannock is a simple, flat loaf of bread that can be cooked in a pan and bakes up with a texture similar to a scone or biscuit, with a fluffy center that is slightly crumbly. It is wonderful for breakfast spread with some jam or served with a main meal alongside your stew or main dish.
