Camp Cook's Companion: A Pocket Guide

Front Cover
McGraw Hill Professional, Apr 12, 2002 - Cooking - 144 pages

The Camp Cook's Companion offers a savory alternative to the bland, just-add-water fare to which most outdoor types resort after a long day in the woods. Acclaimed outdoor writer Alan Kesselheim serves up a delightfully varied menu of more than 150 recipes, made from both fresh and dehydrated ingredients. Proving one needn't sacrifice flavor for utility, Kesselheim describes easy-to-prepare recipes for everything from French toast to Basil Wrathboned chicken. He also offers the choice of a number of preparation methods from simple one-pan offerings to creative Dutch oven repasts and baked goods.
