Food just tastes better when you’re camping. No matter if the cheese in your sandwich is a little past due, the hummus store-bought, the bread smushy white bread. After a day of hiking or sliding down waterfalls, or a night spent in a tent under the stars, your appetite is hearty and everything tastes damn good. Of course that doesn’t mean we set the bar low! Campfire cooking doesn’t have to involve only food cooked rustically above the burning coals. With a little preparation, some good Tupperware, and a sturdy cooler, your campfire meal can go above and beyond what you remember from camp.
