Michelle Shea – ADG’s Founder

One cold day in New Zealand I sat frigid in a ski lodge eating a frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  I looked across the room and saw friends from Japan making hot soup and tea for 8 on a small portable stove.  They were in a much better mood than I – as they happily sipped on warm beverages, I sat on a cold floor eating a cold sandwich.  One of them saw the jealous look on my face and invited me to join them for a hot tea.  The tea warmed my insides, invigorated my spirits and instantly charged me up for the rest of the day on the ski hill.  I learned that cold day in New Zealand that adventure food pairings can have a drastic effect on the successful outcome of a day spent outside.

Since that day I have been working relentlessly to learn everything I can about outdoor cooking culture.  I get help and inspiration from professional outdoor athletes and chefs, as they share insights on the food that fuels their journeys.   Thanks for checking out Adventure Dining Guide,  happy trails and safe travels!
