Ten top tips for delicious campervan food and drink

Eating and drinking is a wonderful way to explore a country, opening doors to new cuisines and cultural experiences, while providing the most basic of human needs – wine, cheese and chocolate, for example. A maui motorhome holiday is the perfect way to get taste of Australia. Here are our top tips for making the most of it.

1. Become a galloping gourmet

Campervan cooking is a pleasure in a maui motorhome, which features a full kitchen with all the vital tools of the trade. There’s no reason to compromise on your creativity: whip up whatever you want, whenever and wherever you want it. Fridge/freezers allow you to stock up on goodies, and there is even an onboard barbecue with the Ultima model.

2. Go local

You’ll have no trouble finding campervan food ideas thanks to acres of locally grown, fresh produce. Look out for farmers’ markets, greengrocers and roadside stalls – not only do they offer a seasonal and healthy taste of the country, you’ll be eating inexpensively, too.

3. Eat artisan

Small-scale food producers have been popping up in Australia like bubbles in champagne. From chocolate and gelato, to farmhouse cheeses and smoked meats, Australia is liberally sprinkled with boutique food producers offering tastings and retail. Most regions boast a dedicated food trail.

4. Keep it simple

Forget the MasterChef mission and go back to basics. Buy a fat bundle of asparagus, free-range eggs and a bag of lemons, and hey presto, you’ve got dinner. Sometimes we get so overloaded with irresistible fresh vege that we have to create salads nearly every night (which happily leaves room for ice cream).

5. Picnic every day

Forget the wicker basket, thermos flask and check blanket. A campervan picnic is much easier than that!

Step 1: Park somewhere picturesque

Step 2: Put the kettle on

Step 3: Raid the fridge

Step 4: Step outside. Bon appetite!

6. Join the Swiss Army

If you’re out and about on foot during the day, you may need to eat on the hoof. Carry a penknife in your daypack, from which it can emerge to halve a pasty, quarter an apple, slice cheese, hack a loaf, stone an avocado, and uncork a bottle when the time is right.

7. Commune with your fellow campers

Campervan cooking is easy and fun, but mix things up by heading to the holiday park kitchen or barbecue are to meet fellow travellers from around the world.

8. Follow the wine trail

Chances are you’ll drive through a wine region. Take a tour or bike the vines. If you don’t have a designated driver, sleep off your winery lunch with a roadside siesta. There’s plenty of room aboard your campervan for a case (or two), and decent wine glasses for your tipple.

9. Get crafty

If beer is your thing, you’re in the right place because Australia is well and truly on the craft beer bandwagon. Keep an eye out for one of scores of breweries on your travels. Tastings are usually available, as are a variety of takeaway options.

10. Stock up on campervan food essentials

No, we’re not talking about salt & pepper (although they will definitely come in handy). We mean kangaroo, abalone, scallops, macadamia nuts, cheese, melons, citrus fruit, berries, cherries and nectarines, jams and other tasty preserves, honey and much, much more. And if you see a lemon tree with fruit hanging over the boundary line, it’s fair game!
