Campervan Man – Martin Dorey

It seems like an age ago now but during the summer the BBC filmed a new food series “One Man & his Campervan” all about the travel adventures of a VW Camper van (a Bay not a Splittie but a very nice van all the same) and the foodie explorations of the vans owner Martin Dorey, author of the Camper van Cookbook, surfer, father and all round interesting bloke!

The series & van (we’ll call the van Pootle 2 as not sure of its actual name) & Martin travel the length and breadth of our Island Nation seeking out & sampling all manner of foodie delights & cooking them up in the van on the trusty 2 ring gas stove.  This in fact was the basis for the original Campervan Cookbook, how to cook great meal’s for a family on a 2 ring stove, using local and even free foraged food whilst minimising the washing up and without blowing the budget!
