Absolutely! Chef Corso can’t do it by himself and it’s always better to share a tasty meal and a vista with someone else.  All recipe testers are noted on each recipe.

Just click on over here and fill out few questions and you’ll be on your way to eating really well on your next trip.

All recipes are tested with real, fresh ingredients. MOST are available in any major grocery store, farm-stand or convenience store. We do have a few from time to time that require special order via the internet but we make a point to call that out on the recipes.

MONTyBOCA provides RECIPES for cooking up great food anywhere. All ingredients are readily available at major grocery stores. At this time, we do not send you a recipe kit with ingredients included. If that’s something you would be interested in, let us know!
We have many recipes for vegetarians, vegans, hungry people, less-hungry people and any-atarian you are right now. If any one recipe does not reach your dietary restrictions, we believe in you and your belly to modify a recipe to your needs. If you need help with ideas… give us a shout!
Sure! that would be amazing. Reach out to us at [email protected] to see if we are in your region
That’s ok! All recipes are super easy to shop for and cook up…all in 30 min or less. You can do it!
It’s a great and easy present for yourself! You deserve to be able to cook up great food anywhere! But we also have a bunch of NO BURNER recipes for you.
All recipes are formatted for approximately a 1.5 L stove. Each recipe can be cut on 1/4 or 1/2 depending on your stove. These recipes are great jumping off points for flavor ideas and combinations and can be modified for smaller portions.
No problem! Do your best to find something close and it should work just fine. And who knows…? maybe you just stumbled on a great new recipe!
No worries! Take it out! Exchange it for something you think is the bees knees!
Yes it is! Yes it will! Most recipes are very filling. But if you’re concerned about being hungry…..pack a second recipe and share the load!

Mont = short for mountain. We like going into the mountains.

Boca = mouth. We eat with our mouth.

Sounds like a great combo to us!

We have recipes with varying weights which are noted on each recipe.  Many are about the same or slightly heavier than a standard packaged meal.  But we are in the camp that a few extra ounces per person is worth it to eat well. 

Oh man….so many great places. And it can be daunting with that much beauty out there. Find a local park or natural preserve. Go somewhere new. Where ever you are, there is something pretty to see. Check out these sites for some options: www.alltrails.com www.outdoorproject.com
It’s only a few dollars, depending on the recipe and usually less to any freeze-dried meal. Would you rather have fresh food or packaged food on your trip?
Nice! Good on ya. You can easily download multiple recipes to fit your needs. We also understand that weight can be a factor. Maybe have a MONTyBOCA fresh meal/heavier meal on night one, then go to the jerky and packaged dry meals. Need more help? Let Chef Corso currate your trip for you.
For 2 people, per day of hiking, we recommend 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, 1 dinner and any snacks you like. Plus plenty of water. For 4 people, per day of hiking, we recommend 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and any snacks you like. Also good to overplan a little for when Jake gets really hungry. (everyone has a friend named Jake that’s hungry) Plus plenty of water.
We’ve had the same challenge. You can’t carry-on or check camping gas/combustables in your luggage. Please respect that and don’t be a weasel. For every trip that we go on out of our backyard, we research a camping or sports store at our destination. It’s also a great time to chat with a local and get some tips.
