Welcome to Dutch Oven Outfitters

Instructor: Sheila Dwyer

Dutch oven cooking is becoming a lost art. My vision is to introduce you to a way of cooking that is not only fun , but it will allow you to impress your family and friends, and possible land you a dream job working with Dutch ovens.

If you love the outdoors and being in the mountains, you will certainly enjoy the relaxing method of using Dutch ovens over a campfire.

Because of the nature of this class (lifting heavy Dutch ovens, handling hot coals) it is recommended the minimum age be 14 years old.
