The Art of Dutch Oven Cooking at White Stallion Ranch

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Join the White Stallion Ranch for this unique cooking workshop from Monday, January 2nd-Friday, January 6th 2017.

There is a science to this ancient cooking method and with a little help you will be cooking like Lewis and Clark.

Whether you are a hiker, camper, fisherman, hunter or backyard enthusiast this is the perfect workshop for you. Have you ever wished you could put together your outdoor meals in a Dutch Oven, but had no idea where to begin? As part of this class, the White Stallion Ranch provides each guest with a Dutch Oven to keep.

Dave Lookingbill provides your education from start to finish. You will be guided through seasoning your Dutch Oven, cooking breakfast, lunch, dinner and a dessert during your four night stay.  A special wine tasting evening will help you pair the best ‘vino’ with your meal.  There will be some class work and lots of hands-on experience.

Dave Lookingbill

Dave was born and raised on rural Idaho farmland, where his mother instilled a love of good food and slow cooking in all of her children.  Dave’s life as a wrangler and farrier covered most of the American West when he found himself at Saguaro Lake Ranch, in Mesa, Arizona 40 years ago.  It was there he found a big, old Dutch Oven and began experimenting with traditional recipes.  Dave was soon 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.

White Stallion Ranch’s cooking workshop leaves plenty of time to enjoy the many amenities of the ranch including some amazing trail rides.  The ranch offers a heated pool, fitness center, recreation room and guided hikes.  Your tuition includes a margarita welcome party to meet the chef, lodging, all meals, ranch activities, horseback riding, airport transfers from Tucson, the Dutch Oven classes, tax and service charge.
