Over the past few years we have been working our way through the freeze dried food offerings on the Australian market having found that no one had done a comprehensive review (at least that I could find) that was available in one location.
The Outdoor Gourmet Company is one of the main brands of freeze-dried hiker meals sold in Australia and as the name suggest they represent the gourmet version in the field. In fact out of the range of 8 currently available I would happily eat all of them. Having said that I certainly have my preferences that given a choice, I will always go for.
Now I know that meal choices are a very personal thing and everyone has different tastes so I need to place a caveat on my choices by saying that I love spicy food. For me a good curry is one that makes my head sweat so it’s unsurprising that these appear in my choices. OK so given that caveat here are my ‘top 5’ Freeze Dried Meals from Outdoor Gourmet.
This one surprised me and is a firm favourite which I wasn’t expecting.
I’m a curry lover and this one is for those who love spice
Another great chicken option
Another spicy chicken meal
Plenty of taste without being too spicy
