There is an ancient trade route in the Southwest that extended from Monterrey-Mexico to Taos, New Mexico.  This trade route was heavily used back in the early/mid. 16th century when Coronado made his first appearance in New Mexico!  Coronado was an explorer from Spain…When he and his explorers first saw the sun reflecting from Taos Pueblo(ancient adobe/hardened mud constructed); he was convinced it was made of gold!  Francisco Vasquez de Coronado set out in 1540 from Compostela(Mexico) with an elaborate expedition to find the fabled wealth of the Seven Cities of Cibola to the North.   The expedition crossed the Sonoran desert and SE Arizona and reached Cibola itself- the Zuni country of New Mexico…His expedition found no fabled wealth!  the expedition did explore Taos, Acoma and various other Pueblos near the Rio grande.(


Howdy Campers!…Those bread crumbs were….Japanese “Panko” crumbs…Easy to find in most grocery stores!  Did you happen to notice my look of disbelief when my room mates girlfriend thought it would be a good idea to walk “On Set” and use the garbage can!?!  That’s our girl Tiff…We now call her the “Photog-Hog”….But, we love her!  I just ate the SW Chicken Cordon Bleu…WOW! and Wow!  Healthiest regards!

Good Morning England!!!

                                                   I review all of my analytics for my campsite each night.  I thought I had a computer glitch occuring…I would see viewers…viewing for the following day.  After one month as Curt’s Culinary Camp…I have “Cracked the Code”!!!  It is my campers abroad that are creating, not an anomaly, but, this new dynamic!  Cheers again!  Your culinary ambassador-Jamie Oliver is doing fantastic work over here, changing the way our children eat at school!  I would wish to be your culinary ambassador in changing the way you source your food!  Organic food sourcing is the only, tenable-long-term, way to go.  Not only for the English or Americans but, for the human species!  Watch Jamie’s show…if you have not already.  It really defines the essence of my platform on organic food sourcing!  Jamie “O” is showing the very worst of the processed food spectrum.  The reality is all processed food is largely anti-nutritive and bad for our health!  Healthiest regards-Coach Curt

Hello Campers!  I have posted: one video on cooking pasta to perfection!  I noticed on playing it back in HD…a little stuttering in the playback!  Here is the solution…Hit pause on the bottom of the video screen…wait a minute or two for the video to load…and hit play again!  Be On The Look-Out for two other short videos coming to you within the next two hours!  Yes…it has been a busy day in the camp kichen!
