Marfa- El Cosmico


I find out
about the most
random things from them

Yesterday, I read about El Cosmico
in Marfa , Texas

I have never been to Marfa
but for some reason, it's a place I've wanted to visit
Now, I have a reason!

Here's the event I want to check out -
a cooking class with Chef Lou Lambert:

SEPTEMBER 16-18: Big City Camp Cooking


Traditional chuck wagon ingredients will be prepared using "big city" culinary techniques -- all over a live outdoor camp fire. Sample Menu: Barbacoa Raviolis, Gulf Seafood Pasole Verde, Bock Braised Dutch Oven Wagyu Short Ribs, Gingered Pear Fried Pies with Honey Buttermilk Ice Cream.

You can stay in a remodeled trailer, a yurt, or a teepee.   I can't decide between the yurt or the teepee.   (You can even pitch your own tent, but that's too rustic for me)

I have been fascinated
with chuckwagon cooking
since I attended a bbq
in Graham, Texas last year

It inspired me
to acquire
that I coveted last year

Reata Southwest Cookbook by Mike Micallef
&
Texas Cowboy Kitchen by Grady Spears with June Naylor




Let me just add
that this fascination
is all very bizarre,
because I'm definitely not
an outdoorsy camper girl!

Ok, I am seriously jealous! Visiting Marfa, or any Texas town/city for a Texified event is deep in my heart for Texas! I would love to read about your adventures once you've experienced Marfa!
PS I noticed someone else commented on your new blog look! I really love it!

I cannot wait to go to Marfa, and I promise it will be a blogworthy event.
