This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the CUHWC trip to Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands. All crockery, cutlery, utensils, pots and pans are provided — the kitchen has a microwave oven, electric cooker and hobs. The club will supply cooking oil.

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 'Not yet signed-up for meal on [this day]' list too 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 preparation and washing up.

Sourcing food/supermarkets

There is a Morrisons and Lidl in Fort William, around 30 mins drive away. Tesco does deliver to the bunkhouse, which might be a good option to avoid excessive driving. We did this for our unofficial trip to Torridon last September and it worked very well.

Timetable

Meal suggestions by the end of Sat 17th March. Finalise groups by the end of Monday (19th) so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.
