Cooking 101: Intro - Tips and Tricks for Great Camp Meals

While some say there is nothing better than a warm and yummy meal at a camp out, as

Grubmaster I can say that there is nothing more satisfying than seeing and hearing the response to meals that I have cooked for leaders and scouts alike.

I can assure you I am not a professionally trained chef nor do I have any unique skills or insights in the kitchen. Cooking a great meal just relies on understanding and following some basic principles of cooking. In this series of blog posts, I will offer the foundational elements needed to produce food that looks, smells, and tastes great.

In this blog series, we will cover the following topics:

  • Safety & Cleanliness

  • Learning to cook

  • Camp Cooking vs. “Traditional"

  • Meal Planning

  • Meal Prep

  • Cooking Skills

  • Clean up

I hope through this blog series that you are inspired to cook some delicious meals for your patrols!!

Yours in Scouting,

Grubmaster and ASM Alan Blatter
