Camping gear review: Bo-Camp Industrial Orville dining set
They say that we eat with our eyes. Not literally, of course, because that would involve some pretty weird science.
However, what that means is that yummy food has to look yummy, too.
There are some clever campsite chefs out there who can knock up a five-course tasting menu with a single gas burner and a knife, but there is an easier way to liven up your food and that’s with pretty plates.
It’s been all about the bamboo recently, but this Bo-Camp melamine set, available from Glam Outdoor Leisure, gives it a run for its money.
There’s 16 pieces – plates, side plates, bowls and cups for four. They come in striking black with a soft-touch matt effect.
They are scratch proof, too, but don’t use scourers when dishwashing. Please also note that the cups are not suitable for use with boiling water, but who wants to drink tea out of melamine anyway?
And if you want to up the style stakes, then look for the gold Fairbanks stainless-steel cutlery set priced at £29.99 to complement the black plates.
