I’ll never forget the the way my grandfather would prepare meals by the camp fire for us growing up. The freshly caught trout and fried eggs over the cast iron skillet just tasted too good to be true. Everything seems to taste better when you’re out enjoying Mother Nature. And for the avid hiker, backcountry enthusiast, food as fuel is a big deal when it comes to nourishment and maintaining strength on the trails.
This event is something you don’t hear about every day, but as an outdoor enthusiast we bet you’ll love it: learn the delicious ins and outs about camp cooking. Instead of just ‘roughing it’ with granola bars and lukewarm oatmeal, take this class from Michelle Shea, founder of Adventure Dining Guide, on May 18 from 6-8PM. Hosted by Patagonia Clothing, Patagonia Provisions, Jetboil and Osprey Packs, you'll learn how to make scrumptious backcountry meals and snacks, and also learn how to choose the right tools and utensils to cook with while out in the wild - like what to make when you stove goes out! With Michelle's mission as "eat civilized, miles from civilization" you'll learn how to take local produce and craft simple, yet delicious foods for your adventures. Don't miss the killer raffle benefiting Tahoe Food Hub, a Tahoe nonprofit organization committed to building a regional, sustainable and equitable food system.
