I’m an adventurous cook in my own kitchen, and I know my way around all the wacky gadgets I stockpile to make cooking easier—from electric pressure cookers to sous vide water ovens and even my handy-dandy blowtorch.
But strangely enough, the one cooking method that’s always struck fear in my heart is grilling food over coals. There was always something intimidating about making a fire and cooking outdoors—something that felt uncontrolled and wild. Whenever we grilled, it was always Henry’s job to do it.
Well, that was the case until I spent the weekend at a women’s only meat camp at Belcampo Farm. Yes, you heard that right: MEAT. CAMP.
What is this magical retreat I speak of? Well, listen in as I tell you all about the stuff I learned: including how to build my own fire, butcher small animals, and grill like a champ. ’Cause really: what’s more Paleo than throwing raw meat on an open flame? Plus, we chat about potatoes, soffritto, cancer risk of grilled meat, and packed lunches!
