<<< I would love to see the menu. I might be doing something similar
fall, so any insights on how the camp kitchen feast worked (or didn't)
would be a big help.
So far my plans include doing as much pre-cooking as possible, but I am
still in the early planning stages.
I should think that anything that you can cook on a camp stove could
be cooked over a campfire, but not necessarily the reverse, so I would
start from that angle rather than the other way around if you want to
be able to cook on either depending upon the weather.
I can think of many, many dishes that could be cooked on a camp stove,
which is why I didn't jump into this conversation sooner.
However, Hrefna, in this case you didn't give such a restriction. You
also didn't indicate how much experience you already have cooking over
an open fire.
We have had some good discussions on this list about cooking over an
open fire. If you don't feel real comfortable cooking over an open
fire, or even just want to see what others recommend, check out these
two files in the FOOD section of the Florilegium:

These in the FEASTS section might also be of use:

These files in the FOOD section may not go into details on cooking
over an open fire, but the menus, recipes and comments might be useful:

I hope these help.
