There's nothing quite like waking up in the woods and making breakfast in the open air, or gathering with friends around a fire after a long day of hiking.
Good food makes for great camping!
The two can and should go hand in hand, and the 80+ recipes and tips in this book will guide you along the way.
This is a book for day trippers, adventurers, campers, and anyone who enjoys cooking outdoors.
You'll find organizational advice and cooking techniques, from planning your meals, packing a cooler, and stocking a camp pantry to building a fire, grilling in foil packs, and maintaining heat in a dutch oven.
The recipes are presented by meal: breakfast, lunch, snacks, sweets, and all-out feasts.
You can choose your own adventure for each occasion, with recipes as easy as Mexican Street Corn Salad and Tin Foil Seafood Boil to more involved dishes like Korean Flank Steak with Sriracha-Pickled Cucumbers and Dutch Oven Deep-Dish Soppressata and Fennel Pizza.
All recipes use a standard set of cookware to streamline your cooking in camp, and are marked with icons to help you quickly find a suitable recipe for your cooking style.
Whether you're an aspiring camp chef or a seasoned Scout, you'll find plenty of inspiration in these pages for getting outside and eating well under the open sky.

"Of all the cookbooks I've reviewed this year (more than a dozen), this is one that earned a permanent place on my crowded cookbook shelf. The recipes are all things I'd craft at home. Even better: It made me want to up my cooking ante on my next car-camping adventure."
- AC Shilton, Outside Magazine
"Linda Ly's practical campfire cooking techniques, creative new recipes, and bold flavor combinations are sure to make you the most popular cook in the campground. Treat your traveling companions (and yourself) to a little culinary adventuring to compliment your outdoor explorations. Your friends and family will still be dreaming of camp food after the voyage home."

"This book should be considered essential gear in the backpack of every hiker, camper, nature lover, or fan of delicious food. It offers seasoned, indispensable advice for cooking, and cooking very, very well, in the great outdoors from an experienced outdoorswoman, chef, and author. If you can't physically have Linda with you on your adventures, at least you can have the very next best thing - her recipes, tips, and hacks for delectable outdoor dining."
- Ashley English, author of A Year of Picnics: Recipes for Dining Well in the Great Outdoors
"We are firm believers that just because you're camping doesn't mean your only option for food is adding boiling water to a freeze-dried bag of noodles. The New Camp Cookbook is an awesome, accessible guide for people of all skill levels who aspire to cook great food outside. Thanks Linda!"
Great book. Although many of the recipes are canted more toward stationery camping, there are recipes perfect for multi-day, through-hikes as well. For those car-camping recipes, though, I have been inspired to adapt them to more mobile trips, and take those great flavors on the trail.
