You shouldn't settle for just Ramen Noodles

...and this app makes sure you don't have to. We now eat like kings in the backcountry. The jambalaya, polenta w/chorizo chips and others are simple enough for a non-chef like me to prepare and cook after a full day's hike.

Warning: the food is so good that your fellow hikers will name you grubmaster for each trip.


Exactly what I needed

This is a great app for beginner backpackers on multi day treks. The food is great and exciting each day and there are a ton of options. Even if their recipes are not for you it will definitely give you a good idea of what is possible on the trail and more importantly, what's realistic.


Tried 3 times to add recipe

App looks interesting until you want to plan food. Tried 3 times to add recipe- no save button appear. I’m looking for menu planning for trip - this does not meet needs.
