Marathon Foods is an Australian owned company that provides premium products for both commercial and household kitchens, and we think that they might just do the perfect camping meal!
Marathon isn’t the biggest and the best for no reason! A family run, Australian business they’ve been around for 55 years. Today, Marathon Foods are still going strong – providing their yummy treats of dim-sims, spring rolls and puff-pastry treats to fast food restaurants all across Australia.
But now, you don’t always have to head down to your local take-away to enjoy these delights, you can pick them up from your local supermarket to cook and enjoy at home. We did just that, grabbing some of their fantastic Minions inspired chicken and vegetable Dim Sims from our local Woolworths! So easy to cook – you can steam, deep fry or microwave, but as the kids wanted to cook them we thought we’d go for the microwave (plus it’s a bit quicker)! With a 4 out of 5 health star rating, these were fantastic little treats for the kids!
And if you’re in the mood for something a little more hearty, Marathon foods have the perfect thing in their Chef Direct range. They are preserved and packed in a way that requires no refrigeration and they keep for up to 12 months, so they are a great option to keep in the cupboard for those nights when you’re a bit short of time! There’s no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives and there is no added MSG. They are also a fantastic idea for those camping getaways as you can reheat inside their pouch in boiling water! We tried the lamb shanks and they were so good, and so easy to prepare – just straight into the microwave – and oh so yummy! You can also get a mild chilli beef as well as beef meatballs!
We were so happy with our foods from Marathon, their products are easy to prepare and taste great! The Chef Direct range will definitely be accompanying us on our next camping trip! And all of their products contain Aussie grown ingredients, they are supporting Aussie farmers!
