The D.A.M. Dog Society had their spring Dutch Oven Gathering at the Galileo Club this weekend. The weather could not been more pleasant. Blue skies and no wind made for perfect weather to fire up the charcoals and heat up our black iron. This group of like minded people shared food, recipes and fellowship. This gathering revolved around the Dutch oven. With a little imagination you can cook anything that any conventional oven can .We would like to share a few images with you.
This women is folding wrappers which are filled with bananas, brown sugar and jack fruit. They are then deep fried to create the most wonderful dessert. The cake below, which was one of my favorites was a pound cake that was frosted and then topped with bacon. Now that is what I am talking about. Creativity was abundant today.
This was my contribution today . It was a sourdough bread made with a starter which had a name; Sally. Sally originated from a long gone restaurant in San Francisco. Cioppino stew is represented in the pot below. We saw stew, several lasagna variations, broccoli/cauliflower, fried chicken, biscuits, and so much more. You really needed to bring your appetite today.
These are the banana desserts being fried below and the finished product above. They were delicious. Abram, one of the original members of our competitive Dutch Oven team is hamming it up in front of an old team picture.
It was dinner time. There were so many choices. This was a great afternoon to reconnect with our dutch oven friends. It never ceases to amaze me what can be cooked in a dutch oven. One is only limited by their imagination. I can guarantee nobody left this event hungry. In fact as I type this my belt is loosened a notch. I cannot wait till the next D.O.G.
