One solution for events that are camping events but don't serve meals is to cook something ahead of time, seal it in a bag and then boil it onsite. I've heard a lot of good reports from people who do this, but since I just recently purchased a "seal a meal" I haven't tried it out yet.

This works especially well for a couple or a small group where folks are busy with other activities at an event and no one has time to cook. It doesn't take much time to fire up a stove, boil some water, drop in the bags and let them thaw and warm up. And there isn't much clean up needed.

For those who want medieval meals, this works just as well, as for those who just want modern foods. There are many period stews and bruits, soups, etc that should work well this way.
