My name is Chef Ron Loeber also known as the Campside Chef.  You might be wondering where I came up with the name Campside Chef.  It originated one day on a Catskill High Peak named Plateau Mountain.  I had been driving around checking out different campgrounds in the area when I saw a sign for a mountain trail.  I decided to climb it and saw this amazing vista when I reached the top.  Being a trained chef, I thought how cool would it be to guide people up a mountain and cook them a gourmet meal at the top.  So that's what I did.  Scroll down if you want the rest of the story.

From the mountains to your kitchen table

As my life changed so did my lifestyle.  With less time and a desire to reach more people I decided to transition into a business that I could run year round.  So, after five years of fun running my Culinary Adventures business I created the Campside Chef Gourmet Food Company.  With a focus on high quality herbs & spices, I created a full line of delicious spice blends.  As a way of sampling the blends, I created hand sliced potato chips.  Little did I know what a hit they would be.  In the future, I plan to continue adding high quality products as it truly does give me a great deal of joy seeing enjoyment from the people that buy my products.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
