MARTY KOCH – OUTDOOR ADVENTURER AND GOURMET PADDLER
After guiding thousands of people on paddle trips throughout the Ozarks and the wilderness lakes of the Boundary Waters and Quetico Provincial Park, Marty has gained a reputation as a great camp cook. With the wide array of shelf-stable foods available in most large supermarkets, the bland freeze-dried meals no longer need to be endured. Marty’s highly entertaining, hands-on cooking shows demonstrate how to eat well while camping, paddling or traveling in the wilds of America. Each show features the preparation of a main dish and dessert. Marty’s demonstrations are fast-paced, humor-filled and fun for the whole family.
