Adventures in Glamping
Rekindle your love of campfire cooking, albeit with a sophisticated twist.
Begin your Glamping experience by waking up to a hearty breakfast under the morning sun. Dig in to a heavenly upside-down apple cornbread, and savor the smoky flavors of grilled bratwurst. Finish the meal off with honey-drizzled grilled grapefruit halves and freshly-brewed coffee to start your day off right.
For an energizing meal before an early-morning hike, enjoy a hot breakfast of warm granola in a mason jar, adorned with protein-filled almonds, luscious blueberries and perfectly grilled pears for added sweetness. Compliment your meal with a delicious mug full of citrus tea with agave nectar to taste.
For late afternoon campfire fare, pair a gourmet feast with a bottle of full-bodied red wine. Munch on an appetizer of grilled figs stuffed with burrata cheese, glazed in balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Tear off a piece of warm French bread to soak up the flavors. For a mouthwatering entrée, try our recipe for charcoal grilled lamb chops with a garlic-rosemary marinade:
- 4 large garlic cloves, peeled
- 1 1/4 tbsp rosemary leaves, stems removed and minced
- 1/2 tsp pinch cayenne pepper
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 12 rib lamb chops, 1 1/4 inches thick
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Finely chop garlic cloves and combine the rosemary leaves, cayenne pepper and olive oil.
- Rub the mixture onto the lamb chops. Allow to stand for 30 minutes.
- Build a two level fire, and place the grill rack in place. Close the grill lid and allow to heat up for five minutes.
- Rub chops with salt and pepper to taste. Grill over the hot side of the fire for four minutes, and then turn once.
- Move them over to the cooler side and grill to your desired cooking specifications.
To make a two-level fire, spread some of the coals in a single layer over half of the grill. Leave the remaining coals in a pile that rises to within 2-2½ inches (5-7 cm) of the cooking grate. If your chops flame up, pull them off the heat and calm the fire with a water bottle. Lamb chops will take 7 minutes for medium rare cooking.
End your decadent meal with a glamorous take on a campfire classic: The S’more. Fire-roast marshmallows on skewers until golden brown, and then pair with cinnamon graham crackers and spiced dark chocolate. Devour the gooey bites with chili-flavored Mexican hot chocolate you can heat over the campfire, and snuggle up to watch the sunset.
