I’m always looking to add something new to my “work” as a PCT Trail Angel. Since I have a passion for good cooking and an interest in honing my culinary skills in contexts outside the traditional kitchen, I thought I would try a series of meals at my property along the PCT during the northbound thru hiker season. Dubbed PCT Pop-Up Gourmet, the event will feature restaurant-like ambiance (to the extent I can create this in the “wilderness”) and gourmet food in the classical French tradition. The date for 2017 is Easter Sunday. I chose this date, both because this is a traditional date for a good meal, and because Paradise Valley Cafe, a popular restaurant for hikers seven miles further down the trail, closes at noon on Easter Sunday, so hikers won’t be able to eat there.
Any thru hiker who wanders by will be invited to partake at no charge. My friends are invited to attend with RSVP. While there is no charge for the meal, donations will be accepted from non-hiker guests to defray the costs of the ingredients. If there is any money left over, it will be donated to the PCTA.
Intrigued, but want more information? — Feel free to contact me. If you know for sure that you want to participate, please fill in the form below.
