Cooking for Eskdale Trip, 8th-10th February 2013

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the CUHWC Trip to the Eskdale Centre in the Lake District on the weekend of 8th-10th February 2013. The new commercial kitchen has 2 fridges and a large freezer, 2 catering ovens, wall-mounted grill and microwave oven, refreshment boiler, serving hatch with automatic fire shutter and a new automatic 1- and 3-minute cycle dishwater. All crockery, cutlery and pans are provided. (I'm very exited about the serving hatch with automatic fire shutter ;) - Greg). I'm not particularly excited about the automatic dishwater - Yuck! (Paul).

Click edit at the top to change the text (you'll need to be logged in to your account on the website first - click here to register if you don't have one). You can either suggest a meal idea or join one of the existing ones and you're obviously also welcome to sort yourself out (move your name to 'Independent'). Please remove your name from the section at the bottom once you're in a group or have decided to cook alone. The person who suggests the meal is responsible for arranging the ingredients - everyone else in the group should bring money on the trip to pay for their share, and expect to help with the meal preparation and washing up.

Meal suggestions by Tuesday evening. Finalise groups by Wednesday night so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.
