Culinary Whitewater Series

ROW Adventures is excited to celebrate a tradition of cooking adventures! We offer several trips in our "Culinary Whitewater Rafting Series." On some trips we have a guest chef who accompanies the trip and prepares gourmet meals paired with their choice of fine regional wines. On other trips, we combine hands-on learning of campfire and Dutch Oven cooking focused on Northwest Regional Fare. Participants will be taught by ROW Adventures' talented guide staff and, sometimes, an additional skilled chef, to learn how to prepare gourmet meals in the wilderness. These skills include provisioning, packing coolers, the use of propane stoves, the art of Dutch Oven cooking and more! The skills learned can be used in for backyard cooking, on car camping trips, or other outdoor scenarios.

Dutch ovens have long been used in the West. Lewis and Clark, sourdoughs of gold rush days and pioneers on the Oregon Trail all depended on these versatile cooking pots that allow a person to bake just about anything. Participants in our cooking adventure will learn all the tricks of Dutch Oven cooking with a focus on regional Northwest fare such as wild salmon, Pacific oysters, huckleberries, Idaho potatoes, mushrooms, apples and other fresh seasonal fruit, etc.

Meals will be paired with Oregon, Washington and Idaho wines along with tasting notes of each featured wine.

All participants receive a complimentary and handsome ROW apron to take home!

Both The New York Times and Every Day with Rachael Ray have featured our culinary whitewater adventures!

We look for guides who are willing and eager to share, teach, listen, learn, laugh, play, discuss, and, above all, work hard to provide a safe, relaxed and spontaneous adventure.
