Have we got your attention?
Stay tuned because the sandwich rock is really a good example of what we try to do here at Canyons and Chefs, where we’re creating something new in the world of outdoor tour services. If you’ve never heard of “glamping” or experienced a gourmet outdoor meal, check us out – you’re in for a treat!
So what do we do?
The Earl of Sandwich
In the culinary world, the sandwich probably needs no introduction.
However, this portable meal is worth thinking about when you’re trying to innovate fine dining on the road.
Aeons ago, the first visionary slapped meat and cheese and whatever else was handy between two slices of bread, and the sandwich was born. Today it’s a billion-dollar industry, with endless permutations and ingredient lists as a major part of our daily diet – you probably have over a dozen sandwich shops within a few miles of wherever you live!
Sandwich rocks are a little different. Like the sandwich itself, they are ubiquitous, but in some ways, that’s where the comparisons end.
How do sandwich rocks come to be? Over time, rivers carry sediment through areas where small bits of stone coalesce on an original rock layer to form neat and interesting patterns that rock hounds can scrutinize to think about the history of a particular geological formation.
As one writer puts it at the University of Nebraska State Museum: “There are numerous times that the seas swept across our land and that sand and mud were deposited along with many layers of ash.”
What do these two things have in common? Maybe not a lot, unless you’re into culinary camping like we are!
At Canyons and Chefs, we like to haul our dutch ovens and portable cooking gear all over Arizona, Utah and the natural spaces of our region. We like to take people along, too. Our guests can check out the “goat’s favorite hikes” and enjoy some pop-up culinary experiences with fire, food and adventure for couples, or for the whole family.
These specialty trips often feature luxury outdoor living – an innovative concept that you have to experience to understand.
We also have special to trips, for example, going to a nearby site called The Wave where you can peruse special kinds of rock formations and enjoy a hearty meal.
Check out our trip calendar and more on the website, and let us know when you would like to visit. We have got special trips in store for you!
