Camp Cook School
Outdoor Cooking and Dutch Oven School in the Rocky Mountains of Montana
Royal Tine Camp Cook School Journal
DAY 14: A beautiful day in Montana. I'm still making mistakes but I guess that's the way it goes. I'm a lot more confident in my cooking abilities and look forward to hiring on with an outfitter. Camp cooking is definitely different from cooking with electricity. You have to pay more attention and watch your food more. The altitude makes longer cooking times and Dutch ovens need to be rotated for even cooking in the fire pit with wood coals. It really keeps you on your toes. You just get the "feel" for this type of cooking after a while. We reviewed a lot of material and LeRee spent time answering our questions. We covered gear a cook will need on the job. Then we cleaned up the cook tent, did an inventory and made a supply list. This afternoon, LeRee had job references for us. I have to make some phone calls and get ready to start my new occupation as "camp cook". This school was definitely worth it.
