Cooking and camping
After a few months of being restricted by the COVID pandemic and having no business, I decided to make some videos of being outdoors in the Chachapoyas area, cooking and sometimes camping.
Meandering River Camp | Huaylla Belen Valley | One Pot Pasta Dinner
I drive west from Chachapoyas to the beautiful Huaylla Belen Valley. It is a flat valley where a river meanders its way along for kilometres. I hike to camp out under a DD Tarp. Simple one pot pasta dinner. After some drizzle overnight, I wake up to a stunning morning and two hundred cows curious about me and the dog. Humita and tamale breakfast.
Soup in a Cave | Locro de Frejol con Mote
I walk down to a small cave to make lunch - a Chachapoyas soup called Locro de Frejol con Mote (bean and boiled maize/corn with beef jerky). The base is a tumeric paste and the final touches of the soup is shredded col (spring cabbage) and coriander.
Cloud Forest | Wild Camp | Trangia Bread | Pork Jerky Sandwich
I walk into the cloud forest which is owned by Kentitambo and make camp. I make a simple dinner: pasta and yellow-chili/cheese sauce (Salsa Huancaina) topped with sausage. In the morning after being woken by exquisite birdsong, I make bread using the Trangia for a dried pork sandwich with a onion topping - a popular Peruvian breakfast.
