Backpacking Chef Corso

Chef Corso has been cooking
his whole life

Chef Corso is your culinary guide to the outdoors and he’s here to put you on the path to amazing meals where ever your adventure takes you. It all started on a few of his backpacking trips into the North Cascades National Park.  He noticed that most camp food was a little lacking… either freeze-dried, heavily salted or out of a bag; and you can only eat granola bars, jerky and trail mix for so long.

He knew there could be something better…

So he started testing recipes with the hiker and camper in mind.  Easy to pack up, easy to shop for, mindful of pack weight and volume and amazingly tasty at camp. 

From the Pacific Northwest, he’s also a classically trained chef trained in Italy and California with over 20+ years of restaurant and food development experience.  But he’s chosen to take his knife to a mountain ridge rather than a fancy fine dining restaurant.  

Whatever outdoor activity you’re into, whatever your dietary restriction, he has you covered.

All recipes are created by Chef Corso and trail-tested by someone in the Outdoor Eats community to be sure they’re EASY, QUICK and as TASTY as possible because well…YOU’RE HUNGRY! A rock to sit on and a view are all he needs. Wherever he goes, he searches for good food and a fulfilling experience. Find your vista. Fill your Belly.
