Whether you are a weekend camper of a long distance hiker, The Campfire Cookbook is the ultimate practical guide to taking off, packing light and eating well. It shows you how to create a functioning outdoor 'kitchen', even in a downpour, and advises when and what to enjoy from the wild, from gathering fresh water or wild mushrooms, to lighting a safe and welcoming campfire. This book won't recommend a Spartan diet, or reliance on packaged freeze-dried meals every day of your trip. There is practical detail on cooking stoves and utensils, lightweight equipment and over 70 interesting and varied recipes, including those you can pre-prepare at home, for robust meals that you will truly want to cook in the great outdoors. This book is chock full of practical and culinary tips: discover why fresh lemon juice, ginger and garlic are worth many times their weight, why dried fruits and nuts make the most potent nutritious meal to keep you going, learn how to plan meals for large or small gatherings, long or short trips, how to build fires with minimum impact to the environment, and how best to pack up and clean up when you leave. This colourfully illustrated guide is an evocative yet essential book for any adventurer - pack lightly, tread carefully and eat heartily.
