Ah, camping! There is nothing like spending a night under the stars in the glow of a cheerful campfire… but this year, skip the spooky story of the campers who only packed hot dogs and greasy crushed chips!
In The Campout Cookbook, Marnie Hanel and Jen Stevenson offer up more than 75 recipes for wood-fired skillet pizzas; backcountry stews and chilis; fire-roasted vegetables and cast-iron breads; unexpected dips, jerkies, and high-energy bars; breakfasts, and so much more. Library Journal writes, “Who knew camp cuisine could be so elevated, pleasing even the most discerning foodie?”
This handy, beautifully illustrated guide also contains essential information for campers, including tips on how to pick a great campsite, how to build a campfire to cook over, the definitive camp packing list, plus camp kitchen essentials.
