Jetboil Sumo™ Group Cooking System

Thank you to everyone who entered.

The winner is: Dave Spelman of Shrewsbury.

Thanks Dave. I'm sure a few of us will be trying this tasty recipe. A Jetboil Sumo™ Group Cooking System (above) will soon be on its way to you.

Dave's Rough Chorizo and Wild Mushroom Risotto

Ideal for when moral is low as the dish bursting with flavours that will brighten up the mood for anyone.

This is a rough and ready outdoor enthusiasts adaptation of a classic Italian dish. Ideal for woodland bivouacs where some ingredients can be found growing wild, but only if you know what you are doing. This dish is reasonably lightweight when carrying raw ingredients, full of flavours and gives a high amount of energy so is perfect for many outdoor pursuits.

One of the beauties of this dish is that the ingredients add most of the flavours themselves - for instance the chorizo sausage makes everything taste so good. The dish can easily be made vegetarian by removing the chorizo but I would recommend adding some additional spices if you do this.


4-5 tablespoons olive oil,
2-3 shallots.
225g chorizo ring.
200g Wild mushrooms (can use other mushrooms if desired).
4-5 garden pea pods.
200g Arborio risotto rice.
1 x Vegetable stock cube.
Water, 1-2 sprigs Parsley.
1-2 sprigs thyme.
Grated Parmesan Bread for scooping.
3 - 4 tablespoons off oil into the pan and bring to the heat.

Cooking Instructions

Roughly slice the shallots and throw into the pan followed by the sliced chorizo ring. Stir for 1-2 minutes. Roughly chop the mushrooms and add along with the peas to the pan and continue to stir for another 1-2 minutes. Crumble in the stock cube and add approx 200ml of water. Add the risotto rice and the thyme.

Allow to simmer stirring every 1-2 minutes. Add water when needed until the rice is cooked. Allow to boil down until the majority of the water is gone leaving the juicy risotto and then add the remaining olive oil. Add some finely chopped parsley and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Great for scooping at with fresh bread or eating straight out the pot.

bon appetit

So to win a jetboil you need to already own one?

not sure if my cup-o-soup recipe will win, saying that my cream of tomato is legendary.

I'm sure if you're cooking it in a small pot on a pocket rocket, and not in a jetboil, no one needs to know! ;) Anyway, its a different bigger jetboil you can win I suppose. It's a good idea for a competition though, because cooking in jeboil is to be honest, a total hassle. They have some recipes on their website but they all seem to involve strange American brand name products that I don't know and can't buy, and all the amounts are in bloody cups! What's a cup? I hope everyone who enters this only gives measurements in milliliters and only uses things you can buy in the UK! :)

What Toby said but..... no you don't have to own a Jetboil to enter, get creative. What tasty meals can you come up with just having one pot, or using the multiple cooking pan combos? 1 cup U.S = 275ml As Toby says, this is a UK comp, for a UK Jetboil recipe book, so use UK available food and measurements.

Looks like an improvement as the original jetboil is a bit all or nothing and normally burns stuff if doing anything more than reheating or simple boiling. Will get my thinking cap on! The Baron
