Can camping be romantic?

A place to talk about anything well just about anything (this is a family show remember).

That means cooking five separate meals in five camp ovens at once. About the only preparation will be cutting and measuring.

You'll surely have all that done before hand all sealed up in tupperware ready to be put together on the day. I am sure you have done all this before and are well organised Derek.

Will you be offering it to the public for taste testing??

Don't ask me how, but I came across this blog some time ago and kept in in my favourites.

Not sure about that at this time. Some places don't permit it due to litigation.

Yes strange hey. Someone gets sick and they sue.

Barry and Merran do it when they demo the Dream Pot as does Thommo. You'll have a lot of food and popcorn go to waste otherwise.

I figure it is a 'choice' thing, you choose to taste, you take the responsibility...

GL are you saying if you tasted dereks cooking and did get sick, because he maybe forgot to keep the prawns refrigerated, it would be your fault, not his?

ABSOLUTELY....it is not like he would do it on purpose and I am not paying for the service/food.

It would just mean that I might be a little more cautious next time.

Many moons ago i worked at Coles they started locking the bins so the homeless people couldn`t take food from them,being the young hippie i was ready to save the world i went off my tree to management,the reason? A homeless person was sueing them as he got sick from eating the food from the bin...one way to get off the streets i suppose. At work i used to take the left overs home for my dogs but now they say if my dog gets sick i might sue them.Unfortunately we are following in Americas foot steps.

Litigation has definitely gone way over the top IMO.

No, if Derek was doing a demo on cooking and offered the public a taste test there is no money from the taster involved.

My comment re paying was related to if I purchased the food from someone then, it would be a whole different ball park.

You may well be talking about other circumstances Will but I am not.

My comment still stands that I believe the responsibility to be mine if I choose to taste test under the conditions which involves someone like Derek doing a demo and being able to offer the food to the public for taste testing. If I ended up being off work for a month as a result of it then that would just be my bad luck.

I am not prepared to comment on any other circumstances as I believe every situation is different.

Cheers Gypsy....

I think the fact that you are there watching a demo of it be prepared/cooked etc which also makes a difference.

It is also the fact that it is cooked in a different fashion to what the majority of people would consider as the norm and that has some attraction.

We are also only talking about a 'taste' as opposed to a meal. One would think it would have to be extremely bad for that to cause too much drama.
