Trail Quest: Backcountry Gourmet

Several years ago, during a six month period, I went on a dozen backpacking trips into our local mountains, eating predominantly dehydrated backpacking food for my dinners. During the summer, with more backpacking trips on the horizon for the fall and winter and my taste buds weary of dehydrated chow, I was re-inspired to find some satisfying alternatives.

This article is a collection of some personal favorites I’ve gathered over the years. It draws on in part from a blog post I made in 2014, which can be seen here, plus three other posts I drafted but never got around to posting. I may add those other three at some point since they include some addition menu ideas that I didn’t have room for in the article.

Article appears in section A of the March 18th, 2019 edition of Santa Barbara News-Press.
