Epicurean Bears

The Big Bear Camp
Friends and Neighbors Potluck

Big Bear Camp is such a wonderful setting for a dinner party and we have great cooking facilities. We want to support the local foods movement, build community, meet new people and have fun together at our beautiful forested retreat. That’s why we’ve started a monthly themed potluck for people who love food, fun and cooking. We call it “The Epicurean Bears”.  All of Big Bear Camp’s friends and neighbors are welcome to attend. Guests are welcome and encouraged as well.

If anyone has suggestions for future culinary themes, just let us know.

We hope to someday tie our themed meals into a movie night as well. We’ve got the large screen and even a local movie buff – thanks to David Eisler, who is willing to orchestrate the Movie Night. If anyone has access to a digital projector that we could use, let us know.
