The Culinary Camper is about creating the best recipes for camping, RVing and more. We continuously bring you high-quality recipes and videos to give you lots of variety, great taste, and fun. I started this blog because I love to cook and I love to talk about cooking. Please leave comments as you see fit and if you would like to contact me directly, fill out the form below and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Feel free to subscribe to get the latest updates as they happen.

On the side, I rent out my RV for hire through Outdoorsy.co. I enjoy giving my renters a complimentary copy of The Culinary Camper. I also provide my renters with a complimentary flourless chocolate cake from Cj & Y Decadent Desserts from in Clinton Washington from beautiful Whidbey Island. My renters love both the cake and the book while they enjoy a great time traveling in my RV.

I also have a desire to start a food truck business called “Burgerlesque” where I plan to sell burgers and breakfast sandwiches. The idea to start “Burgerlesque” came about when I worked for a high-tech company in the Seattle area who often had food trucks, but none of the food trucks served breakfast. I soon found that there were few if any food trucks serving breakfast foods in the area. Stay tuned for more information about “Burgerlesque” as this idea is still in its infancy.
