Gives instructions for preparing two dozen foods while outdoors. Includes safety guidelines and basic campfire instructions.
Children's Literature - Joyce RiceRikki Raccoon introduces the reader to the delicious world of campfire cooking be it in the backyard or in the woods. He provides campers with a list of cooking equipment and a grocery list. Then Rikki introduces safety tips for handling fires, and offers tips for gathering firewood and building a cooking fire. The recipes are very simple and are illustrated for appeal. Recipes range from main dishes such as Porky on a Poke, a pig in a blanket variation, to the favorite camper's treat, S'Mores. The recipes in the collection adapt well to summer backyard cookouts. Some of the recipes do require adult supervision. Grandparents with grandchildren visiting for the summer may want to try out some of the ideas in this delightful cookbook.
Carolyn PhelanEverything related to campfire cookery is covered here: packing equipment and supplies, building a fire, cooking without pots and pans, and making quick snacks for the trail. The pioneers may not have used nonstick cooking spray and sealable plastic bags, but they would recognize some of the foods represented, and so would anyone who has camped out with a scouting group. Even a novice cook can follow the simple recipes, which often label old favorites with jazzy new names, like "Who-o-o-s Chili" and "Hop Toad Popcorn." Heavy, slightly glossy pages make this book more durable than most other paperbacks. Linocut illustrations with colorful washes brighten every page.
