This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the unofficial CUHWC trip to the Ling Hut in Torridon.

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.

Meal suggestions by the end of Wednesday 6th. Finalise groups by the end of Friday 8th so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.


The hut has gas hobs and ovens, but no fridge. Presumably no freezer either... There is a small but well stocked shop in kinlochewe a few miles away, and supermarkets in Inverness and Fort William.


Monday Meal Number One

Starter: Stuffed mushroom bruschetta

Main: Jambalaya. This isn't veggie, however the meat and prawns go in very late, so alternative veggie ingredients could be added in a second pan. Please suggest something.

Dessert: Raspberry cranachan - someone will be delegated to whip the cream

Cost per person: Whatever Tesco sells the ingredients for.

Max number of people: Limited only by pans.
