Ashley Rodriguez is hosting a new web series called “Kitchen Unnecessary“–and it’s so much fun. As her site says,
Outside cooking is not just for the summer. This series shows you the magic of cooking seasonal ingredients outside all year long. Rain or shine – or snow, Ashley Rodriguez and her guests will take you outside to show you how to embrace cooking outdoors.
On each episode, we will show you how to plan, prep and prepare a seasonal and local menu that you can prepare and enjoy outside. Cooking outside with seasonal and local ingredients, we do not sacrifice taste or technique, but we add a whole new layer of experience and memories that last long after the food is gone.
Enjoy this charming video below (the sheer enthusiasm of her mushroom expert is contagious), and yes, watch for the Pendleton appearance!
Don’t you want some of that pumpkin fondue? You’re on your own for harvesting wild mushrooms, but the throw can be found here: Glacier Park 5th Avenue Throw
