    Delicious! Our favourite lunch. Very filling – the serving is huge. The advice of prepping at breakfast (adding the water) and the oil/vinegar 30min prior to eating worked a treat. The food does come from America which is a lot of food miles. Many of the meals we had could be prepped and eaten in the bag which was very convenient.

    Very practical – add water in the morning, remember your fork and enjoy lunch out on the track. We had this every day and probably should have worked in some variety. A very nourishing meal.

    We bought the South West Beans and corn for 2 of our lunches after reading these reviews. We were not disappointed. They were tasty, healthy and generous (for blokes with good appetites). We far preferred the beans to the Margerita wraps, which we had on our third lunch. We appreciated the delivery to our Airbnb in South Hobart, the telephone advice prior, and the personal service provided by Ian.

    Great flavours and one bag does go a long way. It worked really well to share one between two for lunch and throw in some wraps and other plain fillings. Comes from the USA.

    I had this and the many beans salad and both were amazingly delicious and substantial. I would love to get this recipe so I can make it at home… IT WAS THAT GOOD!!
    Great lunch portion, so colourful I knew I was getting lots of nutrients and so easy. Based on 3 capes recommendation I filled the sachet with water before we left for a walk in the mornings so by lunchtime it was perfectly hydrated with the right amount of crunch.

    This is delicious.
    Best lunch by far. 10 people I ordered it for all agreed.

    Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. This dish popped with colour, texture, spice, smokiness, twanging heat and puckering sharp. So fabulous was this dish that I’m about to order half a dozen servings to be mailed to me at home so I can enjoy it there too!!!

    We over catered and gave this to a fellow hiker. They said it was the best meal they had on their trip. A ringing endorsement- it looked delicious.

    Soooooooo good! This was hands down my favourite lunch/dinner meal. Great flavour and texture and a very generous serve. Greay advice from Gail and Ian to add cold water at the start of the day and it was perfect by lunch time!

    Best lunch on our walk. Add water in the morning and by lunch it was ready. Lots of texture and freshness and especially loved the addition of condiments. So delicious.

    Delicious and filling! So easy to prepare and a large serve. Corn chips sprinkled on top was the icing on the cake.

    Our best lunch on the track. We added the water before we set off and it was just perfect for lunch. A wholesome, healthy and delicious meal. A generous serving size too which was great after a big day of walking. Thanks for the tip on getting this one Gail & Ian!

    Very tasty and very satisfying while being easy to prepare. Just added the water , went on the hike while it was rehydrating in my pack added the extras. Very simple.
    Highly recommended

    We thought this Texan Mexican was delicious. Had it for lunch, and all we had to do was add some water to it an hour before we were planning to eat and let it rehydrate in our pack while continuing our walk. Loved the flavour and option to add chilli spice.

    This was my favourite meal on the hike. We ordered three serves and made it for dinner then had the left overs for lunch the next day with an extra tortilla each. It was the best reward when we stopped for lunch at the end of Cape Huay point.
    We’ll be making our own version at home and will definitely order this again next time we hike.

    Add water at breakfast time, carry and serve in some wrap bread at lunchtime……colourful, crunchy and appealing. A great experience to sit back and have such a tasty meal sitting on a rock with such stunning scenery.

    This was very tasty. I had it warm on one occasion as we were able to eat lunch at the hut. Not quite as good cold but still nice

    One of the top two, great flavour. Easy to prepare. Make sure that you have a means of converting ounces though… hard to know how much water you need if there’s no signal. Luckily most sites have some form of measuring cup but often just a half or a third, not calibrated. Don’t let that put you off though, this one is great.

    I didn’t purchase this particular meal but another walker was enjoying it. It looked great and far better than the options we had chosen from another provider. I didn’t choose it in the first instance because I took the picture literally and presumed it was provided as whole veg which I didn’t want to carry. Of course it comes dried and the advice of my walker friend, as provided by gear and gourmet, was to rehydrate before setting off for the day, re-seal and then add dressing when ready to eat. With hydration it looked fresh and had a very appealing texture, far more attractive than the meals I had been having. Definitely be purchasing 3capes gear and gourmet food next time!

      Thanks so much for the feedback, Vicki – and for a meal you didn’t even get to eat! We’ve been very tardy about putting up all the pictures we’d like to – one arty plate of ingredients, one shot of the pack, and one finished meal … your comment has sent us rushing to fix, so hopefully most meals are a bit clearer now …

    I’m not really that keen on black beans, but this mix was very good!
    Tasty and easy to make.

    This was one of my favourite meals and even thought of buying some to bring home to Perth.

    One of our favourites!! The corn chip crunch was an extra bonus. The kids loved it too. Making it in the bag saved on getting dishes out and was easy. Definitely on the list to take. I wish we had had more.

We adore Mexican, Tex-Mex and Southern American food, so imagine our delight at finding Packit Gourmet of Austin, Texas. “Our roots are in the deep South regions of the United States; but our travels have exposed us to flavours worldwide,” says Packit Gourmet co-founder Sara Welton. “That being said, most of the flavours you’ll find in our meal offerings are inspired by our own home-cooking experience and the comfort foods that we enjoy best ourselves.” We’re wild about their flavours; we continue to work our way through the range and are yet to find a dud. We regard Packit Gourmet as our premium freeze-dried range. Only downside: the food miles! We apologise for that, and the freight costs that go with it, but urge you to give this wondrous lightweight food a try.
