About the Event

 Camp Cooking

Embark on a culinary journey in the realm of outdoor cooking with our Camp Cooking experience. In the world of fire cooking, a skilled cook relies on a variety of tools, and among the essentials are the reliable cast iron cookware. These pieces become invaluable for their incredible versatility over the campfire, offering a distinctive and cherished cooking experience.

From searing a steak to baking bread, cast iron facilitates traditional cooking methods over an open fire, unlocking a world of culinary possibilities when used correctly. Join us at The Woodsrunner School Cadre in this hands-on workshop, where we lead you through the preparation of diverse dishes using different cast iron pieces. As passionate cast iron enthusiasts, we'll also explore the proper storage and care for these beloved cookware items.

Ensuring you can create hearty meals is vital when venturing into the woods.
