Welcome to Veedubbing

Veedub Food - Cooking in a Camper

Find the best cocktails and alcholic drinks to go with your veedub grub

When cooking in a camper we except no responsibility for your veedub going up in flames. Cooking times may vary from recipes as cooking whilst heavy inebriated can impair judgement and taste!

With those two small gas burners and possibly, a small grill, trying to prepare gourmet meals in a campervan or field can be a difficult task. With this in mind veedubbing have prepared a few recipes that use minimal ingredients, utensils and crockery and keep washing-up to a minimum!Although the recipes are basic they provide tasty food with the minimal of effort.

All recipes are prepared with the following ingredients; this means you can change the menu at the last moment!† Ingredients are also long lasting so if you donít use them this weekend they will save for next!
