Class Location: Hawthorne, California
This 5 hour clinic will provide you with the knowledge and skills to launch you on the path to Dutch Oven cooking
Make a resolution to cook with a Dutch Oven. We will get you started. Unlike those involving diet and exercise, this resolution is sure to stick. If you’re not already using a Dutch oven, I encourage you to start. They aren’t expensive or difficult to work with. You’ll enjoy learning a new skill and savoring your dishes at the camp site.
You might just get invited on more camping and 4-wheeling trips.
Dutch ovens are a great way to bring the taste of home cooking to the outdoors.
A Dutch oven is a cooking pot that’s designed to be heated by charcoal or a campfire. They are quite often made of cast iron because iron offers a uniform distribution of heat. Dutch ovens are used for baking goods, but are also to cook with. People make soups, casseroles, and other dishes with a Dutch oven. Dutch ovens can be purchased at most outdoor stores such as Cabela’s, Amazon and Bass Pro. Wall Mart has a limited selection. Stick with high quality Lodge or Camp Chef brands.
The ovens come in a variety of sizes, with the most common being 10″ and 12″ in diameter. A 12″ pot holds six quarts of food and will serve four to six people. For two to four people, a 10″ pot should be sufficient. Be sure you purchase a “camp” oven with 3 little legs and a lip on the lid to hold hot coals.
For this class you do not need to bring your own oven. We will have ones you can use. But by all means bring one if you have a clean, seasoned Dutch Oven along with any accessories you have.
We will cover:
- Choosing the right size and type of Dutch Oven
- Seasoning a Dutch Oven
- Useful Tools and accessories
- How to control the heat
- Cooking with Charcoal
- Cooking Techniques
- Hands on Cooking Session
- Cleaning and Storage
Once you register we will send you a list of ingredients to bring for the hands on session. You will be able to take your cooked food home. So bring a large platter.
The class is limited to 10 students.
