The Back-Country Kitchen will appeal to all outdoor enthusaists who prepare meals in the wild. It contains over 150 tested, unique recipes including camp breads, hearty chowders, easy one-pot main dishes, and adaptations of international favorites as well as a special chapter on preparing fish and game at camp. Emphasis is on easy-to-pack, easy-to-prepare lightweight foods. Many recipes use dried foods that are readily available at grocery stores or camping stores; complete, easy instructions for home drying are also included. Cooking methods are explained thoroughly, so even the novice cook is assured of success.
The Back-Country Kitchen was written by Teresa Marrone, whose previous writing credits include two other outdoor cookbooks as well as Outdoor Life. An avid outdoors enthusiast, Teresa spends many days each year camping and cooking in the back country, from the hills and high desert plains of Wyoming to Minnesota’s Boundayr Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
