Dutch  Oven  Ranch, LLC

Personal Chef and Camping Cook


Some big-game hunters like camp cooking, many don’t. For those that don’t, Dutch Oven Ranch’s staff provides a personal chef and numerous menus that provide the hearty meals that strenuous efforts demand, with the convenience that provides time to swap stories in the evening. Some like trail rides or float trips, but want to return to camp to relax — not cook. Perhaps you’re planning a party at your home or just don’t like to cook. Here again DOR can provide personal chef services to prepare comfort food of your choosing. Many families enjoy a home cooked meal they don’t have to prepare themselves. Perhaps you want to surprise your spouse with a special meal at home for just the two of you or a small party. For any of these occasions the crew at Dutch Oven Ranch prepares delicious meals that satisfy all involved using campfire and Dutch oven cooking to satisfy your dining needs.

For those occasions, and others you might think of, Dutch Oven Ranch can provide personal chef and camp cooking services that result in sophisticated stick to the ribs food that is delicious and convenient.  Whether it is on a mountainside, a city park, or private home the Dutch Oven Ranch crew will travel to your location and prepare a memorable meal of your choosing

For multi-day hunting trips and trail rides I can furnish my own equipment, pitch my tent at your base camp and set up the “chuck wagon.” Imagine waking to the aroma of fresh baked cinnamon rolls or a steaming ham and cheese frittata. Whether you return to camp for lunch or take it with you, the fare is interesting, filling, and delectable. When you return to camp in the evening you can unwind with crab cakes, roasted olives, or nachos, move on to a dinner consisting of soda-pop & soy roasted pork loin or chicken sausage rigatoni in a spicy vodka sauce, and finish with a dessert like your mother made — or you wish she had — such as Pineapple Upside Down Cake or Peach Praline Cobbler. Each meal can be elegant or simple you make the call with your menu selections.
