Camping & Cooking: A Photo Essay

Road Food: Cracked pepper turkey with baby swiss, mixed greens, onions, mayo & whole grain mustard on whole wheat bread.

The Destination.

After camp was set up & a bottle of 2004 Matua Valley Pinot Noir polished off, it was time for dinner.

The Kitchen with a Windowless View.

The View.

The Chef.

The Meat.

The Haricots Vert (later, some 3 cheese tortellini was tossed in).

The Wine.


The Spread.

Breakfast was very similar. Just put the Sun in the opposite corner of the sky, replace the bottle of shiraz with a french press full of coffee, the steak with bacon & add some eggs scrambled with tarragon.

    Stop it, stop it!
    I am at work in a small office looking at these pictures, drooling over my keyboard, thinking what am I doing . . . .

    Great pictures, they really tell a story, of peaceful pleasures.

    salt, pepper, and olive oil.

    sauce was red wine, shallots, mushrooms, black pepper, salt (reduced) and then finished with butter, butter, butter.

    You guys rock. Taking it to the great outdoors and then capturing the fading sunset in the reflection of your bottle of wine.

    Damn, Colemans have never produced such good-looking plates of food. And I know that Shiraz must've been good: it's a personal favourite of mine.
