First memory of campfire cookery...

Camping outside of Vail with my dad and stepmother where the nearest person was 2 hours away, and we had to hang our garbage bags from a tree away from our tents. And yet dinner was still somehow still refined dishes served on my grandmother's good china.

Favorite memory around a bonfire...

The first time I ventured to Red Hook, I ended up sipping wine around a bonfire with great people in a grassy backyard, complete with an airstream trailer. Needless to say, it changed my mind about the tiny Brooklyn hamlet and what is possible on long weekend's spent in the city.

Worst experience in the outdoors...

High school parties in the woods in Westchester that usually involved warm beer, no food, long walks in circles and shoes covered in mud.

Can't wait to...

To try out cooking Francis Mallmann's "Weeping Lamb".
