I'm planning several multi-day walking trips this year. Who makes the best freeze dried meals? I normally take fresh but that will be too heavy on this occasion as I have to carry the dogs food as well!:)

There was someone on here selling dehydrated meals at a good price cause I bought a load. Try checking the classified section.

Drytech Rations - http://www.drytech.no/?page_id=44

Bought them when the Norweigan Army Rations were used up on the Telemark Trip. IIRC, Same meals but in an orange packet instead of Green.
I think the Norwegian packs can be had from a place near Quimper in Brest. Group buy? I could go by that way sometime on my way back from the south with a van.

They seem to have made a impression with you, were they miles better than anything else you have tried??
TeeDee, yep, on the Telemark trip, Cliff and I took 3 different types of rations, for me the Norweigan Army ones were the best, more than a normal portion and the taste was exceptional. The Turmat ones are the civilian version and just as good.

Another vote for the Norgie rat packs, super stuff.

If you go in Tesco, Poundstretcher, B&M they all sell Vesta dried meals for £1 each, curry and rissoto are about the best of them but they need to cook for about 15 mins or boil and pop in a Thermos flask to finish cooking in their own heat; for a quid you don't get gourmet food but they are not bad at all for camping.
