Sterilized cutlery? Spotless kitchens? Immaculate culinary presentation? Forget it! Food is real and raw. It comes from the ground and grows on trees. So what better way to enjoy it than out in the open air, around a campfire, a barbecue or a simple gas burner? The Cool Camping Cookbook combines a passion for the outdoors with a love of food. Illustrated with over 150 refreshingly candid photos, it dishes up fresh ideas for campers, walkers, picnic lovers - or for those who just fancy cooking al fresco in the back garden. Featuring innovative recipes for barbecue or burner, comfort food for a rainy day, delicious meals to cook over a roaring fire and squidgy, sweet things to get stuck in your teeth. Learn how bake muffins in orange peel, roast fish in a brick of salt, or make your own firepit or campfire cooking tripod. Comfort food options include a simple and hearty Minestrone soup, Spicy Sausage Penne with a chili kick and Camper's Cassoulet. Barbecue favourites include Cool Camping Jerk Chicken, Bush Burgers and great ideas for infusing fresh fish with bags of flavour. For campfire lovers, recipes range from the simplicity of Boy Scout favourite `Sausage-on-a-stick' to the deliciously fragrant Thai Green Curry and exotic Lemon Chicken Tagine.
