This isn't your average dehydrated spaghetti talk! Join Nick Gordon, an experienced camp chef and guide, for a culinary adventure that will launch your trail food's bliss index from blah to WOW! This expedition paddles into daring, creative, ultralight, shelf-stable, savory awesomeness with a side of caloric fill power. "There is no better way to end a tough day than with an exceptional meal," says Nick (aka Nick of the Woods) who has a reputation for imagination when feeding exhausted paddlers from put-in to take-out. Whether he's cooking for 1 or 61, cheeseburgers, bbq spaghetti, cake, guacamole, smoked pulled pork, shepherd's pie, cappuccino pudding, and even fresh fruit and yogurt parfait, are all part of his ever-expanding menu.

Nick will share some of the tools and techniques he uses to bring delicious variety and inspiration to the trail. Topics will include dehydrating, baking, freeze drying, and the assortment of antique, modern, and modified kitchen equipment he uses to prepare meals for groups of any size. Gram weenies? Food allergies? Picky eaters? Don't let these thwart you. From A - "All You Can Eat" to Z - "Zucchini Fruit Snacks", Nick has got you covered!
