Over the past year I have been working my 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. Currently the range consists of nine (9) options and from my perspective there is only one dud. I certainly have my preferences that given a choice, I will always go for. In fact out of the range of nine I would happily eat eight of them.
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 Indian curry is one that makes my head sweat so its 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.
