Cooking at Burning Man

Cooking at Burning Man isn’t always the easiest thing to do amidst the dry, dusty environment, lack of refrigeration, and inability to run to the corner store for a key ingredient you may have forgotten.

In the video below, two culinary enthusiasts who have attended Burning Man give a 37-minute presentation of useful tips for cooking on the playa. Although it’s not exactly the most exciting video you’ll ever see, it’s a decent primer for those of you who have limited experience cooking in Black Rock City.

For those of you planning to build a kitchen for your camp, Organizing a Communal Kitchen also contains many good facts about what you’ll need to cook on the playa for a small or large group of people.
