Boy Scout Troop 1369, chartered by Occoquan VFW Post 7916, spent the weekend of Nov. 13 to 15 in Prince William Forest Park working on their camp cooking skills. Scouts planned, prepared and cooked their meals with the goal of working on skills needed to complete advancement requirements and the cooking merit badge.

Potomac High School’s culinary arts program instructor Chef Ronald Evans supported the troop by acting as a guest judge for a round of their “Chopped” inspired cooking competition. He donated his time assisting teams with inspiration and direction for their creations, and provided constructive feedback on final dishes.

Chef Evans then provided the boys with a cooking demonstration and tasting. He helped the scouts focus on kitchen and knife safety, inexpensive meal planning, and food preparation techniques. The boys were treated to an inexpensive street taco snack provided by Chef Evans. His instruction and expertise enhanced the scouts’ learning and skill building.

Cooking outdoors is just one of the many topics Troop 1369 explores. Each month, this Scout-led Boy Scout troop actively explores new topics and adventures planned and taught by the boys. All topics are enhanced and enriched by experts and community partners like Chef Evans. For more information about Troop 1369 or to come visit a meetings, visit Facebook- Boy Scout Troop 1369.
