After reluctantly taking 2016 off due to some unforeseen logistics issues, we are back! The 2017 East Coast Dutch Oven Gathering has a new date, a new location, and promises to be the best one yet. The date is about a month earlier than we used to have it, so hopefully the weather will be a little nicer than in past years. We are also excited to be holding the event in beautiful Codorus State Park, in Hanover, PA. The park is really on board to help us out with the event, and want to see this partnership grow.

The East Coast DOG is open to anyone who has an interest in Dutch oven cooking, regardless of your skill level. We encourage everyone to come and join us for a fun day of learning, cooking, meeting some great people and of course eating. Whether you are a seasoned veteran, or have never touched a black pot before, there is always something for you at the East Coast DOG. We will be having Dutch oven classes, a one pot cook-off, and a potluck dinner at the end of the day. We are also not far from Gettysburg, Hershey, and Lancaster, if you would like to do some sightseeing. If you aren’t sure you are ready to cook, the public is welcome to come an talk with any of the cooks participating. So bring your iron, and cook up some goodness. It is going to be a great event, and we hope you will join us.
