“One year. Three countries. 24 chefs.” – Carado’s culinary project. Professional chefs from Germany, Austria and Switzerland took part in “The Way of Taste” project to show that you don’t need the complete professional kitchen set up to cook creatively. To put this to the test, they conjured up fabulous meals in a Carado kitchen. They always had fresh local ingredients with them, most of which were picked or bought the same day. The chefs came up with some great ideas and recipes, which immediately make you want to ditch the usual pasta in tomato sauce and try something more adventurous.

The freedom to be spontaneous and do whatever you fancy is great fun when cooking as well as travelling. Every single day of the project, the top chefs demonstrated everything you can do with a motorhome kitchen – and they certainly weren’t short on possibilities, which surprised Philip Rachinger, for example. He explains: “I’ve never cooked with such a small worktop, but these campers come so well equipped nowadays. If you’ve got the right equipment, allowing you to have two or three small pans on the go at the same time, even two courses can be prepared easily in a motorhome.”
