Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The National Museum of Forest Service History presents a charming cookbook that celebrates decades of camp cooking by countless Forest Service agents in the field. Featuring legendary recipes for Dutch oven meals, open-fire dishes, and other tasty outdoor specialties used daily in the early days of the Forest Service, Camp Cooking has dozens of recipes, photos, and anecdotes that tell the whole history of these brave and hardy individuals.

Dedicated ranger's wives prepared meals with limited resources as they accompanied their husbands in the field, often supplementing cooking with k-rations cooked over an open fire. In rustic and remote locations, delicious, time-tested creations were prepared and served, including Dutch Oven Beer Bread, Parmesan Mashed Potatoes, Pioneer Night Stew, and Creamy Pumpkin Pie.

To pay tribute to decades of dedication of Forest Service employees, the Intermountain Region and the National Museum of Forest Service History (http: //www.nmfs-history.net) are proud to present this collectible cookbook. For more information, visit http: //www.fs.fed.us/newcentury/cookbook.htm.

Synopsis:

"More than just a cookbook, this publication features incredible photos, anecdotes, and recipes highlighting a century of Forest Service heritage." --Gray Reynolds, President, National Museum of Forest Service History "Some of my most memorable experiences with the Forest Service are of sitting around the campfire, cooking a meal at the end of a long day, and sharing stories with coworkers and friends. This cookbook captures the warm memories shared by many who have had the privilege of working for the Forest Service." --Jack Troyer, Intermountain Regional Forester "The finest food comes from the Forest Service Family and all these recipes look wonderful. I can't wait to try them, but I suspect my favorite will still be my mom's." --Dale Bosworth, Chief, U.S. Forest Service (referring to his mother's recipe for War Cake on page 172) "Sharing a few of my recipes for this book has given me a chance to say thank you! This wonderful publication will allow readers to step back in time as they cook up some of the recipes and savor the photos and stories taken from diaries of past Forest Service employees." --Dian Thomas, Author of Recipes for Roughing It Easy

Synopsis:

'\'

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.
