The Campout Cookbook
Inspired Recipes for Cooking Around the Fire and Under the Stars
"Spells out how to eat well when camping out."
--The Washington Post
"This is the rare book that considers campfire cookery as a gustatory pursuit."
--Sierra, the National Magazine of the Sierra Club
Forget freeze-dried astronaut meals and bags of stale, store-bought gorp. Finally, here's a cookbook that complements the magic of gathering around a campfire and sharing a meal with friends. From the IACP Award-winning authors of The Picnic, which brought taste and style to eating outdoors (in the daytime), comes its companion, for leaving civilization behind and dining under the stars. A mix of dishes to make ahead and meals to cook on-site, The Campout Cookbook includes more than 75 recipes for wood-fired skillet pizzas; backcountry stews and chilies; fire-roasted vegetables and cast-iron breads; unexpected dips, jerkies, and high-energy bars; breakfasts to satisfy that yawning hunger that comes from sleeping in the fresh air; s'mores, of course (including Vanilla Bean Dream Marshmallows & Co. and Dark Chocolate Raspberry Caramel Fire-Ban S'mores); and cocktails, coolers, warm libations for chilly nights, and a Blood Orange Bug Juice.
Plus there's inspiration and know-how for every avid camper and enthusiastic neophyte: How to find a suitable campsite and build a campfire specifically for cooking over, and how to keep it going. Stargazing for city slickers. A troubleshooting guide. And the definitive packing list and camp kitchen essentials. Just add a few scary stories for a truly memorable campout.
