@Michelle - Ah! Then what you need is a portable propane oven designed for camping: campchef.com/stoves/portable-ovens.html

comment Is there a typical ratio for Herbes de Provence?
@SAJ14SAJ - And I quote - "..the famous mixtures of herbes de Provence... were unknown to my Provençal grandmothers, who used, individually and with discernment, thyme, rosemary and savory gathered in the countryside." Try again.

comment Is there a typical ratio for Herbes de Provence?
@SAJ14SAJ - The cited Wiki article (which cited a primary source) says there was no "Herbes de Provence" herb blend as part of traditional Provencal cooking. It's a modern culinary invention.

comment What is processed meat?
Meat Product, bought ready-to-eat, is a good definition. It covers preservation and refinement techniques that some may find unappealing - adding nitrates in cured meats or extra animal fat or grain in sausages. It is a pretty broad field, tho, and may cover food no-one much has an issue with, such as plain beef jerky or low-sodium chicken stock.

comment Crunchy/fried grapefruit?
Asian Pear is the most common term for the fruit in the supermarkets in the US - some of them can be of a good size, tho perhaps a bit short of grapefruit-sized. Dry and crisp in texture and flavor, with a taste that's apple-ish and pear-ish while being neither. Delicious and relatively neat when eaten out of hand.

comment What is this sushi?
@Jolenealaska - There's a lot of technique in that little omelette. It's prepared with ground mountain yam in place of water or milk for one, and cooked in a particular way that involves ultrathin layers of egg rolled into a tamagoyaki, requiring a special makiyakinabe pan. Like the french crepe, tamagoyaki can be either pedestrian or the height of sophistication, and it's down to technique.
