For Episode 4 of our Food Tastes Better Outside series we headed into the mountains of BC with Teddy of Cast and Iron. A passionate outdoorsman, enthusiastic camp cook, and sometimes-lucky fly fisherman. Born in Whitehorse no doubt influenced the draw of nature and wild open spaces for Teddy from a young age. His formative years spent exploring the tundra via floatplane, fishing off the coast of Alaska, and camping throughout western Canada. He grew up with the outdoors in his blood.
Now a Vancouverite with a day job as a professor, he still makes ample time for adventuring through the wilds of the PNW with a fly road in hand. And can otherwise be found sampling local craft beers, or experimenting with new cast iron recipes. Lucky for us, he brought both his fly rod and food-focused creative spirit for an overnight camping trip with us. Much of the day was spent wading out into the water, fly rod in hand, as we watched wide eyed to see if anything would pull. Taking in the snow capped peaks as Teddy got the fire going, warming ourselves round it, and waiting patiently for a bite of his dish.
