More than 8,000 visitors descended on Millmerran for 2 days of camp oven cooking competitions & demonstrations, along with music, markets and much more for the 2012 Australian Camp Oven Festival. And plans now are underway for the 2014 festival.
Competitors in the D.A Hall & Co. camp oven cooking competition vie for a prize pool valued at over $2,000. And what is it that they cook in these camp ovens? Well just about anything... there’s roast meats, dampers, stews and deserts like apple strudel or rice pudding to name but a few things. Check out what was on the menu for the Championship competition in 2012 –
With a program that’s packed full with plenty of entertainment including – bush poetry, country music, market stalls, cooking demonstrations, vintage machinery, and novelty events like the damper throwing and billy boiling. There’s something to keep everyone entertained. There’s onsite camping too - so you don’t even have to worry about travelling home at the end of the day.
So put the Australian Camp Oven Festival into your diary for the 4th and 5th October 2014!
See you there.
