Fireside Gourmet

If your childhood camping memories include uninspired vats of spaghetti and endless amounts of gorp, you may be in for a surprise. Camp food has grown up and gone global. How about trading that vat of spag and sauce for soba peanut noodles with baked tofu and vegetables?

The Seattle P-I has an article that brought a smile to the face of this camping gourmet. “Crafting Camp Cuisine” walks the newbie through what she needs to know, and gives experienced campers something to think about (did you know that coconut milk comes in powdered form, easy for back-country excursions? I didn’t).

I mean really, after a long day of hiking, who is going to say no to “Trail Tiramisu”?
