Chicken Tikka Masala


52 weeks of cooking – Marinating When I cook for large groups I don’t bother measuring with spoons or cups, I use my hands. Maybe the flavor doesn’t come out exactly as I imagined but there is always room to taste and adjust the flavor […]

Riverdale High School


Our first trip of the season is a big one, a five-day trip with a full boat of 38 people; these students are from Riverdale high school, just outside of Portland, Oregon. Every trip with a group of students is similar, they are loud, stomp […]
