One of our best people recently talked about our process as a nexus point in the universe – a place where experience matters, and where we make the most of each of our five senses for a new kind of culinary journey through the natural world.

We’ve talked about glamping and what that means – how to juxtapose the rugged outdoors with the glamor of high-design cuisine.

But another way to think about this is that we blend together sensory experiences in a way that’s pretty unique – that you’re not likely to see elsewhere.

Nature and Your Sense of Sight

In many ways, natural landscaping and panoramas appeal to our sense of sight. They do include our sense of smell and touch as well – for instance, the scent of honeysuckle or jasmine wafting on a cool breeze

But in terms of the geology and the scenery, this stimulates your sight the most. And such sights they are! Part of  our itinerary involves combining our food with the best views, not just some views, but specific ones picked out to give you a real visual “taste” of what the area has to offer. 

Good Food and Your Senses of Smell and Taste

As we plate up the food, we think about how your sense of smell contributes to the overall experience.

Taste, too, obviously, later, as you enjoy a dish. So both of the senses get their day in the sun as you enjoy a gourmet meal outdoors! Just the smell of a nice wood fire is great on its own, but then you get the scent of a well-cooked meal, too…

Music and Your Sense of Sound

Then let’s have some attention to the sense of sound, too. Of course, natural outdoor areas have their own sounds to enjoy. But when we add live musical entertainment, part of it is just for contrast – where you can hear the difference between performance and natural organic outdoor sounds!

All of this allows you to get more out of your picnic or other glamping experience. Take a look back through the site to get more familiar with what we offer and all of the amenities you can expect from one of our glamping events. We’re happy to see you get involved with this kind of journey that you really won’t find elsewhere! At Canyons and Chefs, this is our calling – this is our specialty
