We’ve been thinking of practical ways we can help promoters – with every aspect of hosting a rural touring event. One thing that comes up a lot when we talk about rural touring is hospitality.
Lots of Rural Touring promoters feed artists with a homemade meal before their show!
Sounds like a lovely, simple thing, right? But when you consider the logistics of this it can be quite the task…
Whatever you make has to:
- Often feed a fairly large number of people – the artists, stage manager, the promoter, any other volunteers that have come along to help.
- Has to meet any dietary requirements people have – vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, allergies
- Usually has to be made in advance – and easy to heat up, kitchens in rural touring venues come in all shapes and sizes!
- Be fuss-free – so that the promoter and the artists can eat without it getting in the way of making sure the show the show goes up on time!
We thought it might be good to collect some easy. batch cook recipes that promoters are using all in one place… and it doesn’t have to be just promoters that send us ideas – artists what do you want to eat when you’re on tour? If you have a dietary requirement what’s an easy thing people can whip up for you that they might not have realised is suitable?
If you have any recipes or tips you’d like to share with us, please comment below. They could be links to other recipe sites, advice, or just preferences on biscuits!
Or email us firstname.lastname@example.org – who knows maybe one day we could publish a Rural Touring Recipe Book!
Ps. obviously it wouldn’t be a blog post about rural touring and food if we didn’t mention cake, we’d also love to hear your sweet recipes!
