Food is an essential part of any event. What should one bring, and what shouldn't one bring? Can you deep fry in the field? Have a listen!

I'm enjoying the podcast, it's perfect commuter listening. Id like to hear a podcast on the nuts and bolts of unit specific research. Where to start, and how to glean the most out of sources.

Keep it up , I'm listening

Good one to put this on the forum! I wanted to give a reaction about some previous episodes, but I already forgot what it was. Still for future use this will be great.
Anyway I loved this episode, since my group is currently trying to put authentic rations together.

We have been looking at this website: http://veshmeshok.com/engWH

I went to a German federal boarding school, they would not allow you to drink anything during meals, except at tea time. Drinking was said t impede in proper digestion. The school staff were nearly all WWII age individuals, quite a few of them veterans.

This makes no sense and yet I absolutely believe that this is true. I knew older Germans who drank very little or nothing at all with meals.

The section about the guy bringing the selection of cakes made me laugh so hard. I listen to this at work with my earphones and my colleagues were looking over at me like I’m a crazy person.

Concerning drinking with meals, my parents [both Americans of German descent, 2nd and 3rd generation] never drank anything until after the meal was over. We, as children, were allowed to drink a small glass of milk with meals, but that was it. We were given the same answer, liquids interfere with digestion.

Thanks for the feedback, guys! Thinking back when I was a kid, I do actually remember minimal drinks for the food.

Lasse there has been a research thread started on this forum about water being issued to front line troops, And I heard on this episode of the podcast that you were talking about 100l containers and water depots. If you could add some of that knowledge/ research to the thread that would be great!
