"I ate the vegetarian farfalle on a cold, wet camping trip and it made me forget how miserable I was! It’s a hearty, delicious camping meal that tastes like real food and not the usual backpacker’s dust-in-a-bag."
"The most comforting, filling and warming stew. In-your-face smoky notes from the chiles. Love the bites of flavorful chicken. Also, did someone squeeze fresh lime into this bag? Flavor Town, visited."
"So satisfying to the core. A delicious, hearty, creamy, savory pasta. Don't tell anyone, but I serve it at dinner parties. No one would guess it's freeze-dried backpacking food. It's amazing."
Everything you need is inside the bag. Just add boiling water and wait. No extra ingredients, no containers, no surprises. Here’s what you do:

About 10 to 15 minutes. Add boiling water, kick back and talk to your friends or watch the sunset while you wait. Those minutes will sail right by.
Let’s just say it’s NOT recommended. You should definitely take out the silica packet before eating. Even if you notice that it’s still in there while you’re eating, just pull it out. But if you accidentally do swallow one, it won’t be digested and will just come out the other side. While some contain toxic additives, ours don’t. They’re food grade and they don’t leach into the food.
Initial testing tells us it’s somewhere around 10 years, but further testing will happen so we know for sure.
Take a little Gastro Gnome with you on your next adventure. We only carry gear we use ourselves, which means it is lightweight, backcountry-ready and built for travels far from home.shop all
