You've just been hiking in some of the most beautiful
landscape in the world. At the end of the day, you settle into camp,
admire the view, and realize you're hungry.
What's for dinner? No, not some gray powder with
shriveled lumps that you mix with water and eat from a cup. How
about herbed sun-dried tomatoes and sourdough bread, or smoked salmon
The main course may be creamy seafood pasta or
Tex-Mex tacos or coconut-flavored Thai Tom Yum Soup made with fresh
vegetables. Then, when you think you can't eat another bite, there's
dessert.on some nights, fresh-baked brownies and a hot cup of tea
around the campfire, as you talk about the day's doings.
The next morning, you get up and discover, guess
what, you're hungry again. Breakfast is servedchicken-apple
sausages with hash brown potatoes, or pancakes with maple syrup
and home-made jam, or fresh-baked cinnamon coffeecake. All this
goes down with freshly brewed gourmet coffee.
Call of the Wild cooking focuses on fresh local
ingredients whenever available. You'll feast on luscious fruits
in Hawaii, fresh-caught salmon in Alaska, and our specialty, Anasazi
Stew, in the Southwest.
We do not serve freeze-dried meals. Even for our
backpacking trips, we serve some fresh food plus food we dehydrate
ourselves for better flavor. Our backpackers enjoy dishes like buckwheat
pancakes, French onion soup, sausage and cabbage casserole--even
fresh green salad.
We'll be cooking from the many delicious recipes
in Wilderness Cuisine, the definitive backcountry cookbook
by Call of the Wild founder Carole Latimer.
Some of our clients tell us, they don't eat this
well at home!
