Cooking for Coniston Vacation Trip, January 2017

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the CUHWC trip to Coniston Coppermines in the Lake District. The kitchen is fully equipped for group catering - you can see photos in the link here 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 the end of Tuesday (3rd). Finalise groups by the end of Wednesday (4th) 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.
