North of Brisbane somewhere I haven't even looked on the map but its for the Neurum Creek Camp Oven and Country Music Festival. I'm doing demos and damper judging.

I cooked at their very first one Ron.  In fact it was so successful they were going to look at a full on camp oven festival there but the bloke running things back then passed away so it didn’t eventuate.  I think it was going to be called Camp Oven Christmas In July.

If you scroll through this page on their website you will pick up some of the photos of me back then

As part of the day we had, and I believe they still do, a damper cooking competition.  The three winning teams got to sit down with me at what they called “The Captains Table” to eat a three course camp oven dinner that I cooked as part of the demos I did.

I cooked pumpkin soup, roast lamb and veggies followed by a chocolate self saucing pudding.  A local winery donated the wine.

Was a great weekend.

Great stuff Derek, I'm following closely in your footsteps it seems Smiley Some good looking dampers in some of those pics and some well done ones as well. A distinct lack of facial hair was the fashion too I see  Grin
Bell and I are looking forward to going but im dissapointed about missing out on my hometown cog. Might be able to drop in on Monday if anyone is left. I will get home sometime late Sunday arvo and might be able to drop in then but wont be able to cook anything if I do. I will just have to eat everyone elses  Grin

We all started there at some stage.  One of the good learning things about COG’s for me is you meet people with different cooking styles and this can often change your perspective on things.

I have just been talking to Astroboy, he seems keen. Time will tell.
I mentioned that he probably should bring the rest of his motley crew with him.
Might give Billy Bushcook a go next.
