Now We’re Cooking! Dutch Oven Cooking Class @ Nature At The Confluence Campus
Nov 17 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Our first program filled up, so we’ve opened up another class! Please register below to secure your spot!

Dutch Oven Cooking is a unique and fun way to prepare delicious meals and desserts for your family and friends. Come see how easy it is to prepare crowd-pleasing meals around the campfire and at home using your own cast iron cookware, easy to follow recipes, and simple ingredients!

Traditionally seen as a campfire method of cooking, Dutch Ovens have become popular for home cooking as well, and once you’ve had some basic instruction and a chance to try it, you’ll be preparing great dishes in no time! For those unfamiliar with cast iron cooking methods, using a Dutch Oven to prepare a meal can seem like an intimidating experience. Heating coals, seasoning the cast iron, and calculating heating temperatures can put even an experienced cook out of their comfort zone, but we’ll get you off and cooking in no time! Dutch Ovens can be used to prepare main dishes and sides, and of course, dessert!

In this program Terry Bomkamp will share his favorite recipes and hints for a successful meal every time.  You’ll be able to enjoy samples of Terry’s creations!
