Hi from Venice, Italy! Good food, nice weather and beautiful views, what else do I want!

We love camping especially in Southern France, but it doesn’t mean that we are not up to other places. This trip started from Venice, Italy and we found a great camp site.

Cooking in camp sites can be very challenging. You have to keep it simple, easy and of course delicious and healthy.

Today we cooked Italian food (since we are in Italy). We just made this super delicious pumpkin gnocchi pesto with grilled salmon for our dinner.

It was very simple, easy and super yummy!

For this recipe, you’ll need:

400 gr of Fresh Pumpkin Gnocchi.

225 gr of Fresh Genovese Pesto.

400 gr of Fresh Salmon, cut into cubes.

100 gr of Grated Parm.

Juice of a Lemon.

Some Olive Oil.


1. Drizzle some olive oil in your skillet (yes, I have one and it is for cooking, grilling, bbq etc when you are camping) and grill your salmon cubes each sides til cooked. Keep them aside. I don’t season my salmon, because pesto and parm are already salty.

2. Boil some water in a pot. As soon as the water is boiling, dump in the Gnocchi. It takes about a minute or so. Strain your Gnocchi.

3. In a pan, put in the Genovese Pesto, add in your cooked Gnocchi. Stir them but not too much. You don’t want to over-stir the Gnocchi too much. Put in the grilled salmon cubes. Drizzle some lemon juice. Serve with some grated Parmesan and some Chianti. Enjoy!

4. I prefer to eat this meal with red wine (Chianti or Rioja)
