One of our new loves is cheese. Like really good cheese. And Vermont is the epicenter of delicious cheesemaking. Our current favorite is Jasper Hill Cheese. Lucky for us, they had a big game bundle called the Game Day Grazer that included three kind of sausage and three kind of cheeses plus a mini cast iron pan to melt their gooey Willoughby wheel. We added cocktail shrimp and homemade guacamole to round out our charcuterie board. It didn’t last long!

Local Liquor Love

Local Love

We’ve been looking for a way to feature our bar essentials in our small space, especially as we’ve been adding local liquor and wine to our collection to make it more tailored to here. We’ve found a tequila made from agave and maple syrup (Papilio) which is a current favorite! We also found this bar cart at Target for $35 – it’s a new brand called Brightroom which seems to have simple organization elements. And the vintage mixing pitcher was my mom’s that I snagged from her. A little old, a little new, a little local – the best ingredient mix.

Pizza making class!

Local Love

Over the holiday break, we decided to begin to up our pizza game by taking a class at King Arthur Baking in Norwich, VT. All four of us went (Eric and I plus our two grown kids) as a family outing. What fun we had! Not only did we learn that measuring ingredients by weight vs volume is better (we didn’t know!) and the best way to stretch dough to get a thin crust – we also came home with 8 pizzas and 4 balls of semolina dough.

King Arthur Baking is an amazing day trip from our camp location. Not only do they have lots of classes to choose from (but you’ll have to sign up early because they fill up quickly) they have a bakery and retail store where you can buy every kind of flour imaginable. And as an employee owned company, they are a favorite of ours.

This will keep us motivated to build our outdoor pizza oven this summer! And to keep practicing at home during the winter. You can never have enough pizza!

Hello world!

Nature

We are so excited (and nervous) to start this Camp Jomo adventure. We hope you’ll enjoy watching as we build this dream from scratch. 

We decorated our cabin for the holidays and don’t want to take it down. To tell you the truth, we’ll be leaving up our lights and wreath for a while. Doesn’t it look a little magical?
