At the 2010 Outdoors Show one of the stalls with lots of attention was the Look What We Found stall. It was a small stand but every time I passed was packed with people taking samples. Look What We Found make cooked food in packed, not like super noodles or quick pasta but really hearty food.
So why promote at the Outdoors Show? The packets require no refrigeration which means they keep in your bag for days. There a 12 month shelf life from the day the food is made, so if your on a long trip you’ll be able to take plenty of packs.
The food is contained in a foil bag which means it’s clean and quick to open, no need for a can opener. To cook you can boil the bag or place the contents into a pan to cook. This means your cutting down carrying a can opener and time to prepare. The content is pre-cooked already so all you’re doing is warming up and no need to worry about eating uncooked meat.
In total there are 35 options, which include full means, soups and sauces. Full meals include:
- Fellside Beef Chilli Con Carne
- Fellside Beef Casserole
- Herdwick Mutton Stew
- Traditional Pork & Herb Sausage Casserole
There are also smaller snack pots with the same flavors.
What really impressed me was the wide range of uses, there is camping but also having as a meal at work, at night, for students, for people unable to cook. We were lucky enough to sample the pork and herb sausage casserole which was delicious.
Prices range from £1.99 t0 £2.99. There’s discount for buying in large quantities. I would fully suggest buying one pack to sample then going back for more.
