Overview

An essential cookbook packed with easy, lightweight, high energy, gourmet recipes and comprehensive outdoor cooking information for hikers, day-trippers, canoeists and wilderness campers.

The New Trailside Cookbook is the result of a unique partnership between canoe enthusiast Kevin Callan and food and nutrition consultant Margaret Howard. With Margaret creating delicious, healthy recipes for the camp kitchen and Kevin providing the how-to information, it is a perfect match — like having Red Green and Julia Child outside with you. Say goodbye to bland, canned meals and hello to satisfying, fireside dishes. This comprehensive book covers everything from making great camp coffee to variations of GORP (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts), from foraging for wild edibles to mastering meals after the ice melts to living off the land. Hikers, kayakers, day-trippers, wilderness and interior campers alike will find options and advice in this handy, pocket-sized guide.

Recipes clearly indicate what preparation can be done at home, making cooking at camp quick and easy. Dehydrated options (and detailed instructions) are listed for campers outstaying their cooler's capacity. Dishes include hearty morning starts like Peanut Butter Banana Muffins; easy lunches like Mushroom Quinoa Salad; quick pickups such as Apricot Sunflower Seed Cereal Bars; dinners that make the most of fresh catch, like Herb-stuffed Grilled Fish; and sweet endings such as Roasted Rhubarb with Honey and Rosemary. In addition, there is a section dedicated to cold-weather winter camping, and for those only outdoors for a day or two, a chapter on Weekend Gourmet is the place to go for special meals.

Kevin's wilderness skills and Margaret's culinary experience combine in this book to please outdoor enthusiasts of all ages, levels and outdoor locations.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Preparing great food can be a real challenge for campers when they're "out there." But author Margaret Howard has teamed up with avid camper Kevin Callan to provide nutritious recipes that can be made and enjoyed in the great outdoors. Many have two components — preparation that can be done before leaving home, and camp-side cooking. From herb stuffed grilled fish to berry good pancakes, the authors have some great ideas for innovative meals. But for campers heading out with a backpack rather than a minivan and large coolers, many of the recipes will be challenging in that some of the ingredients they call for, such as yogurt, milk, cheese and eggs, require refrigeration – a difficult feat in true wilderness. Some require a Dutch oven or a good skillet. Still, there are sufficient options in the cookbook to keep wilderness campers and their "soft adventure" counterparts interested. Recipes for high calorie and nutritious snacks for hikers on the move: granola squares, fruit ‘n' fiber cookies and cereal bars that can be made at home are easy to prepare.. The authors also offer useful tips for menu planning, foraging for ingredients and cold weather nutrition. (March) North American Distribution: Firefly Books

Scrumptious wilderness pleasures galore.
Campologist.ca
It is easy to read and understand. The recipes are practical in the backwoods... [It] includes quality advice on cooking gear and essentials that are truly camper tested. Lots of pictures... The recipes tell you what preparation can be done at home... I love this book. Buying it is risk free... if you don't like it for some strange and unexplainable reason... it also makes great fire starter.
Booklist - Brad Hooper
The compact, easy-to-use format is a not inconsiderable asset of this inclusive, attractive handbook on preparing meals while enjoying the outdoors. In calling this a gourmet camp cookbook, the authors aren't just putting on the dog. Although the champagne-and-caviar route is not the direction they follow, their book certainly promotes campsite meals that are a cut above hot dogs and hamburgers. Underscoring their advice is their laudable sentiment that the best part of planning a [camping] trip is organizing the food.
