Camp cooking school

As I did last December, I'm going to attempt to post one blog per day. A note and YouTube video on a camp cooking school in Montana is a fitting place to start ...

I last wrote about the Royal Tine Camp Cooking School in Philipsburg, Montana, on April 30, 2006. At the time, all I was only able to direct you to their website.

It seems I missed the June 2006 airing of "Fantasy Food Camps." The Food Network featured five-day camp cooking course at the school.

The show's producer described the show:
Follow four lifelong friends from the city as they head to the picturesque backcountry at Montana Cooking Camp. There, they’ll spend five days learning the tricks of the trade for making meals… all without electricity or other typical kitchen conveniences.
Other segments of the show featured a BBQ camp in the Texas Hill Country.

According to Royal Tine's website, they teach camp cooking in four-day and two-week courses. The courses cost $800 and $1,700, respectively. Prices seem competitive considering the hands-on approach to instruction and the course content.

The website does talk about four- and five-week courses, which are geared to desiring to become professional outdoor camp cooks. These may be older courses. The school will assist with job placement when you take the longer classes, including the two-week course.

Check the camp cook forum for recipes and how-to information.
