A bag of basics for the traveling chef

andreas | Jun 16, 2011 04:20 PM

it's summer and up here in Canada that means one thing: cottage season. For those of us who don't own our own cabin or cottage, this also means renting and frequently putting up with less than perfect kitchens.

I am thinking about putting together a box or bag with some essentials, anchovies, olive oil, some tomato puree, spices, a decent knife and a steel. Perhaps a cast iron pan. Would a Dutch oven be overdoing it?

Has anybody else put together a kit like this, perhaps for camping? And if so, what are you packing and how did you go about this? Did you built a box, use a bag? I'm eager to learn.
