As the weather continues to cool down in Australia, there’s nothing like hot and hearty recipes to warm you up. If you’re an adventurer, the outdoors becomes your kitchen and there’s nothing like countryside cooking, hinterland warmers and coastlines sweets to hit the spot. For most campers, you’d be looking for one-pan meals and three-ingredient creations to satisfy the palette.
