Why Does Patagonia Produce Food?
The tradition and culture of food have always been important to us at Patagonia. On our many travels, the meals—cedar-planked salmon with First Nations friends in BC, tsampa in yak-hair tents in Tibet, asado and chimichurri with Patagonian gauchos—become a vital part of the experience. What we eat does more than just fill our stomachs and nourish our bodies; good food lifts our spirits and helps us understand the world a little better.
When climbers talk about keeping up with the best of them, the proverbial “them” includes ultra-badass Brittany Griffith. A committed lifer to the sport Griffith has climbed, led, and bolted some of the most challenging routes around the world, collecting once-in-a-lifetime stories that deserve a page of their own. While her skills beyond climbing are vast and venerable, her self-described “Gypsy Kitchen” cooking style deserves a mention, keeping her fellow climbers well-fed with what’s on hand. One of Patagonia’s ambassadors, Brittany will bring her climbing and cooking skills to the fest.
