How to elevate your camping trip with fast and easy meals for the whole family  

Hello and welcome to the world of outdoor cooking!  I’m Chef Corso, head chef and founder of MONTyBOCA,  A company and community focused on helping you eat well outdoors.  I’m a classically trained chef, training in Napa valley and Northern Italy with over 20+ years of restaurant and food development experience.  I love going outside and sharing a great meal at a mountain ridge or alpine lake and I’ve partnered with Kelty to share some fast and easy recipes to help you elevate your outdoor cooking game this season.  Let’s get to it! 

You’ve made your camping reservations.  You’re ready to pack up the rig and head out into nature for some much needed fresh air, relaxation and family time.  But hotdogs and smores can get a little tired and meal planning to keep the whole crew happy can be a challenge.  Below are some options for all times of day that will make even the pickiest of campers happy. 

Meal Plan:  It doesn’t matter what age kids you have, the way to their heart and a great time is through their belly.  Cooking together is also a great way to connect and create some lasting memories.  These recipes should get them excited about being outdoors and keep them coming back for more.
