Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Resource  Jun 26, 2008
Overall, we really liked this little volume of tips for packing for the cooking outdoors we recently did. It not only has a wide array of recipes for all kinds of folks, but also has great tips at the beginning on how to pack a cooler, what utensils to take, how long foods keep, etc etc. I also liked that they have a sidebar on many recipes that tells you how to make them at home. I do wish they had more nutritional info, but that is not the focus of the book, which is higher end outdoor cooking. This is always a challenge for those of us who don't eat burgers! But we had some wonderful food and this book gave us some great ideas. It's small so pack it in your pack for car camping, but it is a bit heavy for backpacking.
camping never tasted this good!  May 20, 2008
This book is wonderful--the recipes are enticing and reasonable to prepare. There are plenty of things you can prepare ahead of time to make the actual camping preparations more simple. One reviewer noted that the page numbers are in orange--a poor choice, I agree--but there are too many great things about this book to let that stop you from buying it. The author gives alternate instructions so that you can prepare the meals at home if desired. The dishes are coded for open fire or propane stove or both/either to allow you to easily pick the ones suited to your equipment. There are multiple categories of dishes (breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner, dessert, sauces/condiments). It would have been nicer to have it in a spiral binding but that is true of most cookbooks out there.
Eating well outdoors  Feb 18, 2008
Camping food need not be limited to hot dogs and hamburgers. The recipes in this book are easy, delicious, and a welcome change from boring cookouts. Yes, some of the recipes are more involved than throwing a burger on the grill, but if you plan your menus ahead of time, and prepare simple things like dressings, sauces, and spice mixes ahead of time, it isn't that much more work.

And the little extra effort is worth it - the California grilled cheese sandwiches, for example, are so good I've made them at home on my panini grill. The peanut vegetable dip is addictive. The main dishes are good too - I haven't found a recipe yet I haven't liked.
Awesome book!  Nov 29, 2007
I picked this book up on vacation while killing time in a bookstore. Just one of those random things.. and you know what? This is an AWESOME book! I still use several of the recipes at home. When I used the recipes on my last camping trip, people were in loooooove. Never have people loved camping food as they did during that trip!
best cookbook for camping available  Jun 12, 2007
Many years ago I went on my first camping trip with my husband. We entered beautiful Big Sur with everything we thought we needed; a tent, sleeping bag, camp stove and some propane. I forgot to bring food. I didn't even have a can opener. If only "Campfire Cuisine" had been available back then. The first two chapters cover all the gear and cooking supplies you need to bring and how to plan meals for the trip.

I love to cook. I love camping. This book really brings the two together. The usual camp cookbook recipe ingredients like bisquick, frozen tater-tots and canned mushrooms are completly absent. The author instead relies upon planning, at-home preparation, and careful packing to take the place of processed convenience products.

"Campfire Cuisine" is filled with delicious recipes most of which use a camp stove or grill. (Unfortunately there are no recipes for dutch oven cooking.) The recipes are fun without being really fussy. The "Fish cooked with curried couscous" (page128) is wonderful without being weird. Even my kids liked it! The whole thing cooks in tin foil on the grill. No clean up! The "grilled flatbread pizza" (page156) calls for lavash bread instead of pizza dough. Of course the next day that same lavash can be used for one of the many varieties of "Aram sandwiches" (page 88). There honestly isn't a recipe in here that I wouldn't try. But I do like trendy food and I like to try new things. If you like more basic food then this book might not be for you.

As for the book's design, I can see where someone who has poor eyesight would have a problem reading the book. It's printed in olive green and orange on white. I think the author wanted the book to be small enough to pack for a camping trip, so the type is really small. The content is so good though that the book is still worthwhile.

After fifteen years of looking for a great camping cookbook I finally found it. If you like to cook and want a book that will make the meals on your next camping trip really shine, then this book is for you.
