Anyone who’s spent any time at a summer camp will tell you that one of the lessons you learn is to be prepared. A day’s mean sunburn will teach you to wear sunscreen. A leg covered in bug bites will teach you to pack Off. And seven weeks of cooking for hundreds of children means you have to prep, prep, prep! I tested over 40 new recipes before I even got to camp!
Luckily, I had the help of Chef Derek, who caters part time with Herbnpeach. Over five three-hour sessions, we tackled 42 different recipes (some multiple times) before coming up with a menu/syllabus for Camp Scatico. I’ve shared pictures of some of our projects below. Check back to see how all our hard work went over with the campers!
