Motorhome food - what is it? Is there any particular type of food? We usually argue that most things can be cooked in a motorhome, but it can of course help if the cooking is a little "simpler" and adapted to the motorhome kitchen.

Good campervan food

Good motorhome food is food that doesn't require too much space or too many pots and pans to cook. It's often easy to cook on the grill, in the pot, in the oven (if you have an oven) or to serve something cold and tasty. Good campervan food is also food that is a little extra tasty!

Motorhome food: on the grill

You can grill on a charcoal or gas grill, but note that charcoal grills are sometimes banned on campsites abroad. To ensure success with meat, chicken and fish, you may want to use a thermometer. Chicken and pork should be 65 degrees, beef 56 degrees and lamb and white fish 53 degrees. Tuna should be grilled for 30-45 seconds on each side.

Motorhome food: In the pot / frying pan

It is often convenient to throw all the ingredients together in a single pan. This means less washing up and less crowding on the hob. Practical campervan dishes include a hot soup with bread, a stew with rice or a pasta sauce with pasta. Or why not some boiled mussels with bread?

Motorhome food: in the oven

Some motorhomes have an oven, but not all. Having an oven makes it easy to cook or heat things like potato gratin, fish gratin or lasagne. It is also easy to bake potato wedges or make hot sandwiches. If you don't have an oven, you can buy and use an omni oven directly on the hob, which is suitable for certain oven dishes.

Salads, sandwiches and snacks

It's always easy to cook things that are cold. When it's hot outside, salads, wraps and sandwiches are often delicious. Sometimes when you're out with your motorhome, you want to add a little luxury! So what's easier and tastier than a small buffet table with picnic food?
