NOTES from

We are three women who came together after a bike tour across Canada and years of camp life to rethink food in the outdoors. We believe that food should be as much a part of the experience as the activities, location, and five star views.

We need to be outside. Everyone does. Its easy to forget, and to tell ourselves wed rather stay home. The wilderness eases our minds, reduces our stress, strengthens our bodies, and gives us unforgettable experiences that we cant get unless we walk to them with our own two feet.

Food is an essential part of every adventure. It sustains us through challenges, and gives us the warmth and comfort were constantly searching for. There is no more satisfying meal than one you earned in the backcountry. Why not make food a part of the soul-nourishing experience of exploring the outdoors, and create delicious and special recipes for your next camping trip? Were here to help you do just that.


Aimee Trudeau grew up cooking and camping and studied Food Science in college. She and her kids have been vegan for over seven years. They live in Solvang, California.

Emily Nielson has been immersed in the outdoor industry for her entire working life. She spends her free time rock climbing and hiking with her husband and three children. They live in Upland, California.

Mai-Yan Kwan, the product of Chinese and French-Canadian parents, grew up in Quebec, Canada. A backpacker, cyclist, and knitter, she lives in Los Angeles, California.
