wow! This blogging duo cooks fancy food in the forest without electricity

When it comes to cooking, we tend to take certain things for granted.

Can you imagine if you had to spend a day outside and cook without having access to electricity or appliances at your disposal? This is exactly the concept that propelled an Instagram blogging duo to instant fame. The two men from Poland run an account called “Men With The Pot”. What started as a passion project has now grown into a hugely popular Instagram handle with over 1.1 million followers, which they’ve racked up in a short period of time.

The account is the brainchild of Slawek Kalkraut and Krzysztof Szymanski, two Polish friends based in Ireland. According to their official website, they bonded over mutual love to create delicious meals with minimal resources in the context of nature. “MenWithThePot started out as an Instagram page where we shared our outdoor creations with friends and family, but quickly snowballed into a passion project that people around the world began to connect with,” wrote they wrote.

A quick scroll through their over 700 posts will reveal how they cook “naturally” and completely outdoors. They camp through the forests of Ireland, using only wood fires and hot stones to provide the heat needed for cooking. The special knives and boards they use for their recipes are pretty much the only equipment they use in their viral outdoor cooking videos. They also use the natural elements and temperatures to their advantage.
