'Cooking in an RV Kitchen' with four experts

The Cooking Ladies love to BBQ.
What do RVers love more than camping? Eating of course.

 RVers relish eating around a campfire, crowded in a trailer on a rainy day, or tailgating at a football game.

Four RV cooking pros--The Cooking Ladies: Lamont Mackay and Phyllis Hines; Janet Groene; and Evanne Schmarder--were asked for their tips on cooking in an RV kitchen.

 “Food is entertainment,” says Lamont Mackay, co-author with Phyllis Hines, of ''The Cooking Ladies’ Recipes from the Road.' “Most of our RVing experiences are centered around food.”

“There are certain tricks that can help RVers have a pleasant RV kitchen experience,” says (left) Evanne Schmarder, host of the RV Cooking Show.

Schmarder adds that her “colander drains pasta, rinses beans, strains broth, and acts as a basket for fruit and veggie washing; but it is also a powdered sugar and flour sifter, as well as, a nifty device to remove too much salt from a bag of nuts.”

 'Cooking Aboard your RV' author Janet Groene
Janet Groene recommends shopping at local markets during your journey.

“We have traveled overseas in self-drive boats and RVs,” said Groene. “In both instances the travel experience was richer because I shopped in local food stores, learned local products and cuts of meat, and bonded with local women when I asked how to prepare durian or hogget or conch.”
