Hot dogs, beans, and s'mores, traditional though they may be, are just too simple for some campers and RVers. There's a new trend on the rise tempting outdoor thrill-seekers: gourmet camping fare. Don't be surprised if you cross forks with a group of foodies while you're enjoying the best of what mother nature has to offer. The days of charred campfire cookouts or tedious RV kitchen cooking could be numbered.
Traditionalists may turn up their noses at the idea of fine dining in the camp where they've pitched their tent or parked their RVs. To some, roughing it is the only way. But there is another breed of camper out there. One that appreciates steak, fresh seafood, and dishes that are hard to pronounce. One that wants to relax and let someone else do the cooking. Here is a smattering of options that are available out there to wet your appetite:
If the idea of enjoying gourmet meals is palatable to you, but the campground or rv resort you're staying at doesn't offer it, consider preparing your own gourmet meals before you hit the road. Shop at the nearest farmers' market, where you will find high quality, locally grown vegetables, dairy, and meat products. Pair a bottle of wine with whatever food you choose and settle down to a satisfying meal.
