This cookbook offers more than 100 simple, but delectable recipes--"sans hot dogs and baked beans--"that can be cooked at a campsite. Readers will find practical guidance on meal planning, cooking, and equipment selection.
Camping fare typically includes burgers and hot dogs, and while these are certainly easy, get ready to rethink the cuisine that can be savored over the open flame. With recipes like Spiced Currant Scones, Maple-Glazed Salmon, and Tomato Tarte Tatin, Huck and Young celebrate delicious food and the great outdoors. They also include step-by-step instructions for activities such as stargazing, foraging for woodland berries, and minding one's fruits of the sea (or, how to clean a fish). Campfire Cookery proves that the campfire can not only be a blissful escape but a true culinary destination.
Campers will wax rhapsodic about sleeping outdoors, breathing clean air, and communing with nature, all the while eating unhealthy, unsatisfying foods. "Campfire Cuisine" is here to ensure that you won't have to eat hot dogs and baked beans any longer. This illustrated cookbook features more than 100 simple but inspired recipes for meals that can be cooked at a campsite all made from fresh foods, without any prepared or freeze-dried ingredients. Enjoy recipes such as Spicy Orange Chicken, Grilled Steak Tacos, Bourbon-Glazed Salmon, Lemony Couscous Salad, Cinnamon Baked Bananas, and more! With "Campfire Cuisine"'s practical guidance on meal planning, cooking, and equipment selection, it's easy to eat well while reveling in the great outdoors.
