Please plan to post pictures and recipes for those of us who can't go to Oregon. I love the food cooked in a dutch oven but never had much luck with cast iron. Everything seemed to rust on me. This may just be a reflection of my homemaker skills. Also, they are too heavy for me to carry so I might consider aluminum. Perhaps you could do an experiment at the gathering and prepare the same recipe in different ovens and see how they compare.

Good luck with the gathering.

Kathy

Kathy,

Too bad you won’t be there for the Workshops. We cover all the issues you are discussing. We even show how simple it is to clean up gooey, sugary, drippings left over from pastries cooked in the Dutch Oven.

We’ve been cooking in both Aluminum, & Cast Iron for over 30 years. Each has its place. When weight is an issue, like Canoeing, Aluminum is great. It is harder to use.

We also know that there are many other styles and techniques, other then ours, of cooking in a Dutch Oven. We have competed and taken first place in Dutch Oven Cook Offs judged by 5 star restaurants. We have been asked and demonstrated Dutch Oven cooking for the Paso Robles Pioneer Museum Annual Pioneer Days. And we were asked by the Church of the Latterday Saints to teach their folks these skills even though we are not members of that church. Over the years, we have taught hundreds of Boy Scout leaders and Boy Scouts, just to name a few.

At gatherings, like the Oregon Gathering, we always meet new people and learn from them new techniques. As you can tell, it’s just a passion of ours.

Jeanne and Steve, looking forward to meeting you.

We’ll be in touch with all who sign up and work out a plan. Be thinking about what you would like to show and what you would like to learn.

This is going to be fun.

Ditto!

Maybe Nancy better not schedule any conflicting workshops for this time slot?

I'm interested in Dutch Oven cooking for one or two. Most recipes I've seen seem to be oriented towards the "family size".

Nancy won't. The other workshops will be from 2:00 - 3:00 PM on Saturday. This DO workshop will start around 4:00 PM. That way participants can work on their potluck dish for Saturday evening.

Nancy,

How much time have you alotted for the Dutch Oven Workshop?
What time is the Pot luck?

To put one of these on, we need about 3 hours.
  1. One hour for Teaching Learning, Questions & Answers
  2. A half hour to three-quarter hours for staring fires, charcoal & and food prep.
  3. Three-Quarter hours for cooking and more Q & A.
  4. A half hour slippage (etc.)
As you know, if we were just cooking one dish, BAM it would be done in 45 minutes at the most.

You're right, Mike. I wasn't remembering the 2004 schedule correctly. We had the workshops from 1:00 until 2:00 and then started the DO workshop at 2:30. The potluck is at 6:00 PM.

Mike & Lori,
Wow - we have always wanted to go the DO Cook-off - saw a few clips of it on TV last year! We are just getting started in DO cooking. Nancy gave us some great tips at the North Oregon gathering last fall - just enough to whet our appetitie for more . Would love to join the workshop!
Thanks
Dave & Kathie
