If you like to be a little adventurous with your camp meals, then check out the REI Camp Cooking Challenge hosted by the REI Boston-area stores this summer during the 3rd-annual REI Summer Camping Festival.
Three professional chefs were given 1 hour to cook 3 courses using locally grown produce and locally caught redfish supplied by the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA). The challenge? They were allowed to use only the consumer-grade camping stoves available at REI, such as a traditional propane camp stove or a canister-style backpacking stove.
