Camping and Cooking

The best kitchen window in the world is no window, doors, walls, it is being outside!!  Whether back country skiing, summer camping the more remote the better.  It is amazing what can be pulled off on the fly!!
I recently join ROAM Adventures for an amazing camping/ rafting vacation as their chef and it was fabulous.  Although the original plans had changes on the way it was a beautiful trip with wonderful people and the scenery was spectacular with a huge water fall and lots of birds. Sleeping out under the stars wasn't bad either!
Here is a dinner that was enjoyed on the first night.  Some fresh BC Wild Sockeye  Salmon with a coarse cornmeal crust, fresh local blueberry, cucumber, onion and thyme salsa, coleslaw, mash potatoes (got to get the kids interested), asparagus and carrot cake for dessert....I did pre-make that as baking facilities were not available and prep is the name of the game out here in the wild!
Enjoy and please share your favorite outdoor back-country extravaganzas.
 The kitchen...............
 Best crew ever, singers, musicians, general comedians, dish assistants and guides!

The prep area.


 Carrot cake, oh yeah this recipe is incredible.

The dishes for 24 people and me cooking in at the camp.

Breakfast the next day was sausage, eggs to order, Spanish omelet, homemade granola, yogurt, juice, raspberry scones (pre-made), apricot and lemon cake.


  1. Could you coming camping with us next year please!! Where do I find that carrot cake recipe?!

  2. That was Jodie that made that comment by the way!

  3. Hi Jodie, I posted the carrot cake recipe for you today. I also added the chocolate zucchini cake recipe. Enjoy!!

  4. I hope you had some help cleaning those dishes. There's no chore I hate more than doing dishes. LOL!
