Join our professional chef host Kyle Mendenhall as he welcomes naturalists, fly fishermen, wildlife biologists, foragers, geologists, musicians and historians along on our trips. You will find each adventure brimming with rich information and good cheer. At the end of a great day of hiking and learning, when the wood is collected and the fire is ready, prepare to explore backcountry-cooking techniques.
At Backcountry Gourmet we stand for: environmental stewardship, a life of exploration and learning, authenticity, and extraordinary delight in wholesome foods. We believe in savoring the preparation, the journey, and the destination by fostering self-reliance through adventure and sharing. We crave local, wholesome and hearty meals.
After a day’s hike, the food truly does taste better in the backcountry. We hope to inspire you to camp and cook with family and friends, to enjoy and cherish our land, and, of course, to eat well.
