Outdoors Cooking Course
You love to camp, and wish you could make a nice
meal for friends and family when you do?
This course will introduce you to the joys of cooking
and eating well outdoors. You'll learn about home-drying food, pre-trip
food prep, and the ecologically sound camp kitchen.
You'll also learn about camp stoves and other equipment,
so you can make the best choices for your cooking style. The course
will cover how to safely operate and care for your camp stove.
This class will be a day
of hands-on cooking at Tilden Park in Berkeley. You'll cook simple
recipes for the spartan backpacker, as well as more ambitious dishes
such as Sherried Mushrooms and Sweet Peppers, and Thai Evil Jungle
Prince (which tastes much better than it sounds). To satisfy the
sweet tooth, you'll also bake brownies. At the end of the day, we'll
sit down together and enjoy the feast we've prepared.
Women who are taking this class as part of the Wilderness
Skills Course will also do pre-trip food prep with Carole.
Carole Latimer, author of Wilderness
Cuisine, will be teaching the course. A copy of her cookbook
is included in the price.
The next time you go camping, you may be serving
pasta puttanesca, Indian curry, or Tex-Mex chicken tacos, to the
delight of your companions.
