Annie Evans loves cooking, meeting new people and preparing good food in circumstances that some cooks might consider primitive. Cooking for field work means improvising, working with equipment that’s far from ideal, keeping cool in a crisis, scouting out fresh local produce and always turning out nourishing, nutritious and delicious food.

How does this sound??Dinner basics are chicken, meat or fish and these may be served in various dishes such as Thai or Indian curries, chili con carne, pork spare ribs with rice and salad, beef lasagna, tandoori chicken, Thai fish cakes, pork afelia, vegetable and chickpea tagine, moussaka, spanakopita and old-fashioned spaghetti bolognaise. And vegetarians are always catered for.Rounding off the meal may be fresh fruit, desserts such as sticky date pudding, citrus syrup cake or peach, apricot or apple clefoutis – depending on seasonal and local availability.

 These are the projects She has cooked for so far:

Sydney Cyprus Survey Project, Politiko Phorades, Cyprus 1998, 2000

The Negotiating Avebury Project, Avebury, Wiltshire UK 2002

Troodos Archaeological and Environmental Survey Project, Troodos Mountains, Cyprus 2001 – 2005

    Ha, a mere patch on Glen the site cook at West Hes in 1982 – not only splendid scoff at meal times but scones and buns for afternoon tea break – when asked where he learned his culinary skills “Inside!” All done on a huge calor gas stove that still worked despite Paul and I having to partly dismantle it to get it through the porrtakabin door and re-assemble it inside – we never did find out what the bits we had left over actually did!
