Sometimes the best part of camping isn’t just being in the great outdoors, but the opportunity to enjoy some delicious warm food in the great outdoors after a long day. There is just nothing quite like fresh-cooked food over the campfire. And if you like cooking fine food at home, there is no reason you can’t prepare some gourmet food around the campsite too, and we don’t mean bacon and potatoes in foil. The New Camp Cookbook: Gourmet Grub For Campers, Roadtrippers, and Adventurers is the new go-to cookbook for those of us who live in the outdoors. Besides being a beautiful hardcover with nice big pictures, it’s packed full of delicious, healthy recipes that will bring you camp chef skills to the next level.
A few selected meals from this book include a Korean Flank Steak with Sriracha-Pickled Cucumbers, which ought to add some spice to your trail dinner, Grilled Watermelon with Gorgonzola and Pistachio Crumbles, as well as Grilled Guacamole. Sounds downright luxurious compared to freeze-dried foods and pre-cooked bacon, especially after endless energy bars and trail mixes.
Backpackers, keep in mind that this book is meant for campers and roadtrippers – the kind who roll up to camp in a fully loaded SUV with coolers and camp stove in the back. If you’re looking for easy, packable ultralight meals for the long haul on foot, you might need to keep looking.
Still, with camping season upon us, The New Camp Cookbook will make a handy addition to your camp kitchen kit.
