There’s a lot of ways to cook food in the great outdoors, but Phil Jones’ preferred method is the Dutch Oven. It’s a large cooking pot suspended over hot coals and is ideal for casseroles.
“Over 45 years ago my Romany Gypsy pal and I roamed not only the UK, but Canada as well, during the long Summer holidays.
Cooking on an open fire with cast iron kettle and pans using a heavy ‘kettle prop’, he knowing more than me, bemoaned the absence of a Dutch oven, which to this day I don’t know if he ever had one.
Funny that because he hailed from Hartlebury and I bought my oven from Stourport just up the road.
