    I love my gas cooker much more than my standard electrical cooker back home the thing is gas is able to cook food much quicker although in smaller motorhomes cooking different meals can be limited does anyone else agree?

    Have cooked full Christmas dinners and baked cakes in the RV oven but since buying my halogen oven I think the gas oven is now redundant.

    Agreed. Also done a full Christmas Dinner, roasts, currys and all sorts in ours. The cooker is pretty much the size of a domestic one at home with all the same feature so why not?

    I've cooked 3 and 4 course slap up meals for 10 people using a 2 burner cooker with grill and oven - ie the old Flavel caravan cooker. Fair do's - someone else had to re-heat the sauce ..... so the full domestic jobby in the M'H is sheer luxury.

    Barry - ever had Marmalade pudding (like Bread & Butter pud but made with Marmalade sandwiches and no dried fruit) using sliced Brioche? - lerrrverly! - one of my standards on hols!

    Ah. All this talk about food. I just had a vision of last spring sat outside the van early evening in the Pyrenees, 75 degrees, sun shining, plenty of wine and Leffe beer and a selection of French cheeses and bread. It seems a million years away now.

    Sunshine, Van, Beer and Cheese and Im happy. Easy pleased me. Not much to ask is it?

    Im sick of this winter.

    I never said I had done them. Just said Done them! Mrs D does Christmas dinner etc.

    I cook curry and cheese on toast. Thats about it really. Nobody really eats my curry but me. Mrs D has tried it but she reckons its should come with a government health warning or a radiation shield or something.

    All I want to do is drive my van around France, quaff beer and wine, eat cheese and follow the sunshine. But no. Mrs D keeps sending me out to work so we can live in the deep freeze of the North York Dales. She seems to have a happy little life and doesnt want me spoiling it with my "lets pack in and go full timing" ideas! Oh no. Ive even offered to learn to cook. I have a receipe for Marmalade butter pudding or whatever it was!
