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.
