Overview

" . . . a book that will appeal to everyone who has ever choked down the pre-packaged, bargain-basement camp food (or gone bankrupt buying the good stuff)."

Canoe & Kayak

. . . if you're on the lookout for a way to bring real meals to the field, [this book] might have the answer."

Field & Stream

Life in the outdoors revolves around food—cooking it, eating it, packing it, carrying it. We even fantasize about it, especially after a week of eating store-bought provisions. This book is all about fulfulling those food fantasies and avoiding those expensive disappointments. Trail Food tells you how to remove water from food, to make it lighter and longer-lasting, without removing its taste. Learn to plan menus and prepare meals just like the ones you left behind, using fresh foods from your garden or market, prepared and seasoned the way you like them.

Why fantasize when you can have the real thing?

    Recipes for hinking

    While I enjoyed the stories I didn't feel this book was worth buying. Mary Bell's Complete Dehydrator book was much more informative. I was looking for recipes not stories on hiking food recipes.
