Publisher Comments:

With camp cookery as popular as ever within Scouting, The Scouts Dutch Oven Cookbook continues the tradition founded in our pioneering past by focusing solely on the art of camp Dutch oven cooking. Whether youre hungry for a Big Timber Breakfast Casserole, Chicken Dutchiladas, Frazzleberry Pie, or anything in between, youll find hundreds of camp-friendly options. Each recipe has been personally tested and approved by the authors and is accompanied by at-a-glance information about preparation time, challenge level, and servings. This is an all-in-one manual for Boy Scouts and their leaders, containing enough information to support a mastery of basic concepts for those new to Dutch oven cooking, while providing many challenges for advanced outdoor chefs.

Synopsis:

Like The Scout's Outdoor Cookbook, this new cookbook will bring together outdoor recipes, cooking methods, and tips for a Scout-friendly cooking experience. This user-friendly cookbook is aimed at Boy and Girl Scouts and their leaders, but is appropriate for hikers, campers, canoers and kayakers, or anyone else who wants to eat well in the wilderness.

Each recipe includes number of servings, a difficulty rating, a list of required equipment, and handy icon to let the reader see the required dutch oven diameter, estimated preparation time, and healthy option meals, at a glance. These books will be full-color with color photography and spot art throughout. It's important to note that all of the recipes have been tested and used by Boy and Girl Scouts on campouts and are proven, time-tested favorites. Recipes are laid out with step-by-step, clear, and specific instructions, eliminating the need for guesswork. Great scout stories or anecdotes about camping or food adventures accompany many recipes.

Synopsis:

From "Commissioner's French Toast" to "Chicken Dutchiladas," The Scout's Dutch Oven Cookbook highlights hand-picked outdoor recipes, plus cooking methods and tips for a Scout-friendly cooking experience. This is the must-have resource for Dutch oven cooking in the outdoors, whether you're a Scout, hiker, camper, canoer, kayaker--or anyone who eats in the wilderness.

Get this Sleeper Suprise cookbook. You’ll be glad you did.

I love it when a new cookbook sneaks up on you. FalconGuides, a new publisher to me, provided a new idea for my kitchen: a cookbook for Scouts. What a great find. The personality contained in this small volume is huge.

The authors define the goals of the book at the very beginning. First, the book is designed to teach scouts cooking skills. While the techniques are framed for the campsite they clearly translate to the rest of life. The authors also want to demonstrate that camping food doesn’t have to be bad, bad for you, or boring. They do a great job accomplishing all of these goals.

One of the best finds in the book translates oven temperatures to number of hot coals needed for various sizes of Dutch ovens. Most cookbooks tend to offer one measurement and not the other. Now, it doesn’t matter which you have as the Conners provide a way to fix these recipes on the fire or in the oven.

The value of the book is impressive: the scant retail price for a cookbook has the potential to net you a lot of good recipes for your investment. Sometimes that one great recipe is priceless but with financial changes or just running out of space on your shelves, value is a good measurement for considering a new cookbook.

What is the recipe bottom line? An unexpected amount of sophistication appeared in the recipes. The S’mores cake is simple, easy decadence but it’s like a cakewalk down childhood memories. I also loved the Caribbean Spiced Ribs. No doubt it will cover many miles in my kitchen. The overall best however matches what I’m always looking for in a recipe while managing to be a complete sleeper recipe. Reading and making it did not reveal that we’d be fighting over extra servings.
