Summer camping usually goes something like this: drink too many beers, pretend you know how to start a fire, kick some dirt around, finally get a fire going, somehow burn the hot dogs (yet keep them raw in the middle), survive on warm beer and peanuts.
Four Pounds Flour‘s Sarah Lohman is trying to change that with her hearth cooking classes, which she hosted over the last couple of weekends at the gorgeous Old Stone House in Brooklyn. She took Underground Eats members and students through all the essentials: how to start a fire, and how to cook classic campfire recipes like crispy rusks and spring greens soup, as well as Dutch oven-friendly chicken curry and bacon-wrapped venison on a stick. Which sounds like reason enough to head to the woods this weekend.
Luckily for city slickers, she’ll be teaching the class again in September.
