 For Cooking and Outdoor Enthusiasts

If you’re a hiker, camper, fisherman, hunter or backyard enthusiast this is the perfect workshop for you. Have you ever wished you could cook your outdoor meals in a Dutch Oven, but had no idea where to begin?  Dave Lookingbill provides your education from start to finish. You will be taught everything you need to know: from building and controlling your fire, seasoning the Dutch Oven, recipes and techniques for cooking breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.  There will be first-hand cooking experience for all, including demonstrations of techniques and tools.

Dave was born and raised in rural Idaho, where his mother instilled a love of good food and slow cooking in all of her children.  He had covered most of the American West as a wrangler and a farrier when he took a job at a Dude Ranch in Arizona over 40 years ago.  It was there he found a Dutch Oven and began experimenting with traditional recipes.  It wasn’t long before Dave was catering Western Events as a featured cook, and today his friends will tell you “There’s nothing he can’t make in a Dutch Oven…”
