- Be able to cook without utensils. You are allowed to use foil though.
- Cook a 3-course meal for your group (must be sufficient to feed your group and you must consume it. So don’t try to cook something that looks good but taste bad)
- Your 3-course meal should include side dish (ie. omelette, porridge, rice etc), a main course (stew, mixed grill, meat) and a dessert (jelly, cakes, pudding etc)
- Be able to draw up 2 menus (including quantities) of 3 courses each (not all which require cooking) for a patrol of 6. [This could be done before or after the cooking session]
- Able to understand the importance of balanced diet and illustrate briefly the nutritional components and values of the type of dish served.
- As this is a Camp Cook badge test, criteria will be strict. Groups must not only know how to prepare and cook food, but must be able to show competence is preparation of pit, starting and maintaining of fire, and methods of cooking. Groups will also be judged on creativity for the presentation of food. In other words, be actively involved in the whole process of Camp Cook, not just preparing and cooking the food. Group members will be also judged individually, so doesn’t mean all will pass.
- Maximum in a group is 4, minimum is 2. Your food amount should cater to the number of people in your group.
– Those who are doing their Cooking (1), must be able to clear part (a) – light a fire using firewood and matches before allowing to continue with part (b) – cooking a simple meal.
– Those who are doing Cooking (2) are to follow Camp Cook criteria. (ie. no utensils allowed.)
