Iowa Dutch Oven Cooking Society
Hello and welcome - I'm in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and wanted to let you know that there is a Dutch Oven Cooking Society in the area. We are the Prairie Rose Cookers and we cover all of eastern and central, Iowa.
Dutch Oven cooking is a style of outdoor cooking using cast iron pots with charcoals or wood coals. Anything can be cooked in them from pastries to soups to savory meats to desserts/breads to even icecream.
Our group gathers several times a year for cook offs and DOGs. What is a DOG? It is a Dutch Oven Gathering. We gather together in a park and cook all day. At a designated serving time everything is placed on a serving table (several) and served potluck style.
We are chartered by the International Dutch Oven Society and welcome everyone to cook with us.
You are welcome to check out our Yahoo group site - Iowa Dutch Oven Cooking. There are lots of photos, info, recipes, and a database of all sorts of things.
Our next event will be our Spring DOG in Ladora, Iowa (off I-80 near the Williamsburg Outlet Mall) at Lake Iowa on April 19, 2008. We invite you to attend and check us out.
