Publisher Comments:

This latest edition of the original--and best--natural foods backpacking cookbook features a wealth of new recipes and mouthwatering classics, as well as the most current information on cooking with today's lightweight foods and equipment. This unique cookbook brings together the expertise of culinary professionals and the wilderness knowledge of a former backcountry guide to provide more than 180 trail-tested recipes for delicious, natural, and easy-to-prepare meals for backpacking, hiking, and camping.

Since Sierra Club Books published the first edition of Simple Foods for the Pack in 1976, there has been a revolution in backcountry cooking. Today's lightweight stoves and kitchen tools make cooking in the wild easier than ever before. And with the ubiquitous availability of fast-cooking natural foods, the modern adventurer has tasty alternatives to the expensive pre-packaged meals that are on the market.

Focusing on these natural foods and the latest equipment, this newly revised edition offers hikers gourmet taste at every meal--from Oatmeal Hotcakes for breakfast, to homemade "nutrition bars" for the trail, to Beer Fondue back at camp. The wide variety of menus and the expanded guide to planning, packing, and preparing food make cooking in the backcountry as easy as High Mountain Pie.

Synopsis:

Featuring more than 180 trail-tested recipes for portable, delicious, and easy-to-prepare meals, this updated edition of the original - and best - natural foods backpacking cookbook adds Cordon Bleu chef's expertise to delight the palates of backpackers and day-hikers. It stresses variety and tastiness, with special attention to nourishment, nutritional balance, low cost, and health.

Mouth-watering recipes include Moroccan couscous, hot and sour soup, salmon in tomato-orange sauce, chocolate fudge pudding, and walnut spice cake. These foods are easily packed and use lightweight and long-lasting ingredients. The cookbook also provides menus; makes suggestions for foods prepared at home; and offers tips on packaging and carrying foods, selecting tools and utensils, medical information, use of fires, treating water, and where to buy ingredients.

About the Author

Claudia Axcell is a professional writer, and Diana Cooke is a graduate of the Cordon Bleu in London who teaches cooking. Both live in Bishop, California. Former trail guide Vikki Kinmont lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
