After a long winter cooped up indoors, most of us are itching to get outdoors, breathe that glorious, fresh, spring air and be sociable, right?! The lockdowns we’ve all endured in recent times have made us really appreciate simple pleasures, and what greater pleasure is there than sitting around a campfire, with your favourite folk, enjoying a fabulous, alfresco feast surrounded by the beauty of nature?
There’s just one snag. You have no idea how to begin and oh boy, you’ve got a few questions! How does a campfire for cooking in the wild differ from any other campfire? What’s important for your safety (and success) when choosing which wood to burn and cook over? What kind of recipes are suitable for campfire cooking and what kind of equipment and preparation will you need? Which kinds of local plants and herbs can be foraged for food and medicine and what will you do if an accident happens, as they sometimes do?
Well, fear not, intrepid adventurer, we shall reveal all these secrets and more! We’ll explain all the essentials and by the time you’ve read this easy, down-to-earth guide, you’ll be armed with all the information you need to get out there in the wild and cook on that campfire like a pro!
We know you’re busy, so we’ve done the legwork for you and condensed decades of experience and serious study into this quick and easy read. You can also be assured that wherever in the world you’re based, this information is designed to be useful and accurate regardless of location.
If you love being outdoors and love cooking but are unsure how to successfully blend the two, then this book is for you. If you’re interested in local wild plants and herbs which are either edible, medicinal or both, ditto.
