Feeding Hungry Hikers with Gastro Gnome's Shannon Waters

A former chef, restaurant consultant, and culinary school professor, Shannon Waters is the owner and CBC at Gastro Gnome, a backcountry food company that creates super tasty, travel ready meals for people who appreciate great food as much as they enjoy getting outside.  

Formally trained at The French Culinary Institute in New York, Shannon went on to hold positions at some of the best restaurants in the country and gain skills and technique from renowned Chefs.  Her love of cooking and the outdoors collided when she packed a heavy cast iron pan into the backcountry. That’s when she realized that if she was going to enjoy a great adventure and a great meal, she was going to have to find a solution for packable meals. That’s how Gastro Gnome got its start.
