Off Grid Cooking

During a disaster, you may not be able to fire up your electric oven or use the microwave to cook your family's meals. If you don't have a viable and safe back-up plan, this could be a real problem. Don't worry, we have a wide range of solutions - for all weather and situations. In this fun new class, we will give you all the skills you need to cook excellent meals, both outdoors and indoors, even if the utilities are down. This class is structured similarly to our Primitive Cooking class, in which you spend the morning cooking a lunch and the afternoon cooking a dinner. In this class, however, we won't be using primitive cooking techniques. We'll create a lunch and dinner for ourselves, using an assortment of modern matrials and off grid cooking techniques (frontier style up thru modern camp cookery).

  • Learn to make your own rocket stoves to burn a variety of fuels
  • Create and use solar ovens to bake bread and treats 
  • Make meals with dutch ovens, and even use pots from a modern kitchen. 
  • Learn the basics of cooking with staple foods 
  • Find out how to maintain clean dishes and cookware
  • We'll even show you how to become a great fire maker!

Spend the morning preparing an off-grid lunch and enjoy an afternoon preparing our self-reliant feast!
