Conversation with a Chef
When I was asked if I'd like to have a chat to camp oven guru, Ranger Nick, I leapt at the chance. How could I not? Ranger Nick is a celebrity TV cook on Channel 7 Mates 'Step Outside with Paul Burt', he is a Guinness Book world record holder for the longest damper, and the creator of Curry Kits, and he has recently been recognised as a Finalist in the Environmental Business category of the 2023 Australian Small Business Champion Awards. While he doesn't reckon he'll make it to the Sydney Star Casino event in late April, Ranger Nick is pretty chuffed to have been nominated and named a finalist. Living off-grid and traveling all over Australia to educate outdoor enthusiasts and school students about bush cooking and environmental etiquette, Ranger Nick has more than a few stories to tell. We talked about how to control the heat in the fire, roasting silverside, cooking damper, and the best way to look after your cast iron camp oven. I learned so much and I cant wait to get into the bush at Easter and try out some of his tips. Ranger Nick has an infectious laugh and he certainly put me through my paces quizzing me on my cooking knowledge. This was such a great chat and I wish him all the best at the Awards.
