Overview

This best-selling 208-page paperback book has been formatted especially for easy use and navigation on the Nook. It features clickable cross-reference links to recipes and techniques throughout the book, along with more than 50 helpful color photographs showing numerous techniques.

The Back-Country Kitchen will appeal to all outdoors enthusiasts who prepare meals in the wild, but especially to those who want to pack their own lightweight meals. It contains over 150 tested, unique recipes including camp breads, hearty chowders, one-pot main dishes, desserts, beverages... even adaptations of international favorites, as well as special recipes using fresh-caught fish.

Beat the cost of freeze-dried meals! You'll learn how to pack your own flavorful, lightweight mixes from readily bought ingredients; you'll also learn how to add variety to your menu by drying foods at home (the book includes complete, easy instructions for drying vegetables, fruits and meat in your oven or in a small home dehydrator).

Learn special camp cooking techniques, including open-fire cookery, using a camp oven, and meal management with a single-burner stove.

Here are just a few of the recipes you'll find in The Back-Country Kitchen:

Editorial Reviews

Pat Bell
Excellent: Marrone is experienced in back-country travel and understands the constraints of wilderness cooking, yet the recipes are practical and creative. Wish this had been out years ago!
Stu Osthoff
A great book. Prepare and truly enjoy delicious, easy-to-cook high energy 'real food' on your next adventure. There is a better way to eat in the wilderness than bland expensive freeze-dried. This book will make a believer out of you.
