  1. ‘Get me up that hill’

High energy snacks that you can carry with you on a tramp and eat on the track. Entries to this category need to be pocket-sized and practical snacks you can make at home before you head out on a trip.


  1. Hut-friendly desserts

What homemade sweet treat do you like to round off a good day in the hills with? This category includes anything you think you can make mid-tramp, with what you have carried into a hut. Billy-baked cakes, carefully carried and constructed pavlovas, and creek-chilled cheesecake would all fit the bill.


  1. ‘Post-tramp treats’

What do you dream about eating when you finish a hard trip? What’s your go-to recovery eating recipe? This category is for anything and everything that you can make at home to reward yourself post-tramp – the more decadent or nourishing the better!


  1. Tararua biscuits

Your take on this tramping staple. Key features are high energy, indestructible and versatile enough to be eaten on-tramp for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three!). Check out the TTC website for more detail on what makes a good Tararua biscuit.


Happy baking!
