Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You love to paddle. And you love to eat. So why are you still slurping soggy ramen out of a grubby coffee cup, when you could be reveling in a luxurious camp meal? The Paddling Chef was written for people who paddle, but who no longer want to be penalized for their love of the outdoors by lifeless meals. Paddler Dian Weimer shows hungry readers how to pack, carry, and cook outdoor meals that help make water borne trips memorable - for all the right reasons. In The Paddling Chef you'll find well over 100 tried-and-true recipes for your favorite ingredients, as well as valuable planning and packing strategies. International in flavor, this cookbook contains tasty snippets from Indian, Chinese and Japanese foods, and a section on wild foods.

About the Author

First time author, Dian Weimer, was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. Although she has always had a love of the sea, she was unprepared for the passion that has become part of her middle-aged life adventure paddling trips in kayaks and canoes. Although age has not diminished her thirst for adventure, her tolerance for poorly planned meals on trips has grown thin. Over the years she has shared her camp culinary prowess with many paddlers, young and old, and after much encouragement, Dian decided to share her commitment and secrets for eating well in the wild with the rest of the world.
