Join Chef Tanya Petrovna to learn easy, creative Plant Based camp cooking on this weekend class at the reserved Lost Horse Campground.  We will share with you many successful recipes for fun, exciting eating while camping in Joshua Tree National Park.  Recipes will range from Campsite Appetizers followed by Bourgignon on Buttered Fire Pit Potatoes, Ash Roasted Vegetables Purses to Smores Dip.  Fruity Fresh Dutch Oven Biscuits and Dude Hash for breakfast, Trail Sandwiches and Wraps and Backpack Desserts.  The course fee includes the meal ingredients.

Chef Tanya will help you to be a good camp cook based on pre-trip preparations, packing your foods correctly (no one wants water soaked sandwiches), and cooking equipment and utensils checklists.  To create a good appetite, hikes with Lew Kingman are scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday.

Caravan to Lost Horse Campground: Car & Tent Camping.  As we will drive right to the campground, this is considered “car camping”.  All of your equipment can be unloaded right at the campsite.  So you don’t have to worry about carrying your tent or cooler any distances! So, pack any equipment to make your weekend stay comfortable and easy.  Bathroom facilities are found at the campground.  Camping equipment can be rented from local outfitters.  Please call 760-367-5535 for more information.  We are here to answer your questions!
