Land of Odd Memorial Day Weekend Survival Campout


Second annual Memorial Day survival camp at The Land of Odd in Iroquois County IL.

An out of the frying pan and into the fire experience. Everything we eat for the entire weekend will have either been foraged, grown, or caught in the local area. Chef Jeremy Leven who trained at Noma, will be on site to prepare all meals and give insight and advice on preparing and preserving foraged ingredients as well as cooking demos.

In addition to foraging and campfire camaraderie other activities will include fishing, nighttime headlamp frog walk, haunted site exploration, finding and identifying local fauna (reptiles, insects, and more), viewing the local bison herd, exploring ruins, maybe a trip to a nearby waterfall, and more. A weekend of experiences to last a lifetime.

Chef Jeremy Leven brings his vision of progressive Great Lakes cuisine to life at Sweet Home. Jeremy has gained acclaim for being an early pioneer in Chicago's underground dining scene with his pop-up event series Tuesday Night Dinner. His efforts were recognized by Zagat Guide when he was inducted into their 30 Under 30 class in 2014. In 2017, Jeremy received a Michelin Bib Gourmand for his Basque-inspired menu as Executive Chef of mfk. in Chicago's East Lakeview neighborhood. In 2018, Jeremy relocated to Copenhagen to do a residency at the world-renowned Noma restaurant during their plant kingdom season. While at Noma, Jeremy spent his time there acquiring new skills in the kitchen, a glossary of knowledge about wild plants, as well as numerous hours spent assisting the fermentation lab. Most recently Jeremy has taken it upon himself to travel the remote regions of the Great Lakes basin to seek out the forgotten food traditions passed down for generations.
