Question Cooking and Culinary Sub-forum

I love to cook - as do many other Streamers. But... what I'm finding is the food related information here is pretty sparse. Not many threads out there offering this kind of information.

What does everyone think about having a sub-forum on campground cuisine? It could be a place to share information on cooking, recipes, great food finds on the road, local places to shop, farmer's markets, cooking equipment etc etc etc.

What does everyone think??

We've discussed it before and thought our sister site http://www.discusscooking.com/ was already set up just for that sort of thing. But I know what you mean.

i.e., a specific decision was made not to start a cooking subforum here. Their moderators likewise would balk at an Airstream subforum over at discusscooking.com. But I see it's not necessary! About halfway down their forum page they've got an outdoor cooking forum. Tho' I recognize not all Airstreamin' grinds are prepared outside.

Discusscooking is an nice forum but it's not much different than any other food forums out there.

What I had in mind with a sub-forum here is that it would be specific to cooking while camping in an Airstream (or orher RV).

It could be a place to discuss and share...

- favorite recipes that are perfect for camping
- tell about a cool place to shop for food while on the road
- adapting meals and recipes from a home recipe
- favorite or different ways of prepariong meal in an RV
- entertaining in an AS
- cooking equipment and gadgets that are perfect for the trailer
etc

I guess an analogy would be the pet forum which discusses pet issues on the road. There are scores of pet websites out there but the pet sub-forum here discusses it at it relates to Streamin'. What I'm suggesting is a sub-forum as it relates to cooking (and entertaining etc) to trailer life.

I would be nice to discuss it here with where we could find it in one spot and not have to dig through a lot of unrelated information on another website. I seriously doubt we'd be stepping on anyone's toes to discuss cooking in an Airstream here.

Hmmmm... instead of actually calling it a "cooking" subforum it could be something else related to the kitchen and meal preparation.

I have always wanted something like this because you cant always use the same measurements for a meal comming out of a magic shef oven and time and temp may vary.

It has been discussed by the mods/admins several times...and always decided it was to broad of an off-topic subject for Air(stream)Forums.

I don't get it - what's too broad about having a place to ask questions about the issues related to using the galley of an Airstream?

Every year, make & model of Airstream has different layouts and equipment. If a member has a specific question about theirs, it can be asked in the Trailer Sub-Forum for that make & model.

That's different than the original question:

Which I took to be more recipe oriented...THAT is too broad of a off-topic subject.

I think I was a little too quick to post the thread without thinking more of the things that could be grouped in a sub-forum like this. I really don't mean it to be a recipe archive although some recipes could be shared here.

It would also be the kind of place where someone could ask about using a crock pot on an inverter, how to deal with the refrigerator items while going from campsite to campsite, how do you store glassware etc etc etc. These are all topics specifc to us which are not covered by some of the other food discussion forums websites. And... many of these topics are difficult to search in the archives for. Thus, if there was one sub-forum to cover them it might be nice to have.

Hi Jimandrod,

You can find many of your answers under appliances and various other posts. I have always found that, if I had a question about the refrigerator, stove oven etc.....I can get the answers I need.

I guess I have camped for so long that I am set in my ways regarding what food/recipes appeal to me. I would prefer to see that we stick to what the forum is intended for....Airstreams and how they work, can be repaired etc....

Please take no offense.....just my preference.

Pot Luck ideas

I, for one, would be interested in a thread about good food to cook in the Airstream for pot luck meals at rallies.......because we don't have a lot of storage space in the refrigerator and freezer.....or in the kitchen generally....I think we could have some fun with a cooking thread.....pj

Jimandrod........sometimes I wish I had your newer kitchen. Mine was invented before microwaves. It's always a good reminder to be forced to use an oven and remember to be patient.

i don't think i proved any point...

except that the info is already there, if one LOOKS for it...

just read and bump one of those threads.

my observation is that these topics only appeal to a few folks (including me)

and only pop up sporadically...

like when someone asks about plates or pots or spam or starts a food/game thread...

the issue, apart from whether any of these is a/s specific....

is WHO will monitor/edit and clean up after the folks usings this subforum?

i think the mods are doing all they can to keep up with 'on topic' stuff and riffraff ...

while i agree the pet forum is a similar issue---IF it didn't already exist, it might not now?

and NOTHING in the pet forum is organized by heading, into subforms either....

all posts are just dumped in the pet pound, which is obvious and

would limit a 'culinary' subforum, since most would just end up posting in off topic.

so my suggestion is just start a thread on a given culinary issue, when it comes up...

or SEARCH and use the ones already started....

the older ones are very funny!

cheers
2air'

also the FORUM RALLY threads have LOTS of food info, pictures and so on...

and so far, NOONE has gotten the trots from rally food (i hope)

and here are 2 more to add to the above list...

tincanluv has these cool (or not) turquoise pots and dinnerware to match d' stove...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f161...pots-7840.html

and here is another poll...

I fully agree with Jimandrod's post #14 in which they state that 2air's listing of the many food/cooking/beverages/camping threads proves the appropriateness of a subforum in which all these postings could be gathered. Those of us who have been on the forum a while know that these topics return again and again. Having a subforum listing for these among other subforums on the home page would 1) simplify finding topics related to food interests as it pertains to 'streaming and 2) reduce the repetition of similar threads being begun without knowledge of previous postings. There is a continued interest in such topics among this forum's members. Come on! Please look at this again. I think the pet forum gives perfect precedence to this. The argument for the one serves as well for the other, especially since so many threads already exist which can form the foundation of the new subforum. If as 2air posts above, the mechanics of managing such a forum is burdening, then that's another matter, and perhaps enough reason to continue with things as they are currently. Just my thoughts. ~G

Corn meal mush… now there’s a thread that deserves a home.

Having a pet forum is the perfect arguement. We should be able to discuss cooking a lamb just as easily as potty training one.

And we have so much to discuss… from coffee to prime rib roasts, think of all that might be missed if we don’t share galley tips & tricks.

So, should we also add:

Photograghers Forum?
Flyfisher Forum?
Harley Forum?
Canoe Forum?
Single Airstreamer Forum?

Where do we draw the line???

As far as the Pet Sub-Forum goes, it was added a long time ago. Since then, alternate topical forums have been reconsidered. If we knew then, what we know now...it may not exist here.

Sorry...
