Program Feature: COOKING

Cooking Information Troop Meetings Main Event

Food is fun, especially when it’s food that you have cooked yourself. There is nothing quite as tasty as golden-brown peach cobbler cooked in a Dutch oven … unless it’s a perfectly grilled steak with a piping-hot baked potato. Or maybe a Western omelet overflowing with cheese, peppers, and onions. Or maybe … well, you get the idea.

Cooking is an important skill when you are camping, but it is also an important skill back home. Unless you want to get by on ramen noodles and fast-food burgers for the rest of your life, you need to learn how to cook. That is what this program feature is all about—as a new backcountry gourmet, you can learn techniques to tickle your palate and amaze your family and friends. You may even go head-to-head with other Scouts in a cook-off where you have the chance to prove your skills. No matter who wins, there will be plenty of delicious food to enjoy afterward.

So grab your apron, and let’s get started. Bon appétit!
