First memory of campfire cookery?
Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over a bonfire in my backyard of the house we grew up in. I was very lucky to grow up with a forest as my backyard.
Favorite memory around a bonfire?
Watching fire dancers dance around a beach bonfire in Montañita, Ecuador when I was a translator in South America after college.
Worst experience in the outdoors?
When I was in high school, I did a 3-day pioneer trek with a church group. The overall experience wasn't bad, but we had to wear long, multi-layered pioneer dresses in the summer heat and every day our lunch was beef jerky. To this day I cannot eat Slim Jims.
Can't wait to...
experience the Catskills, make new friends, and discover fun, new pairings with open-fire recipes. Really excited about the goat! :)
