Camp Cooking in the Wild

camp cooking book in the wild wendy grater camping things to take trekking

One day you’ll find yourself out in the wild without a can of baked beans, and if you don’t know what the shot is, you’ll go hungry. But why? There need not be any reason why you can’t use what’s around you to prepare a delicious, filling and healthy meal in no time.

Even if you do have food with you, knowing how to cook it well while you’re out on the trail is still a challenge, but there’s no excuse for not knowing how to do it; the information is out there, and we’ve got it.

These are just a few of our favourite camping cookbooks, ones which we’ve all dipped into at some point to get us out a sticky situation. We’re particularly fond of the Cool Camping series, with its mixture of fun and delicious recipes, and practical tips for preparing food without the modern comforts.

Camp Cooking in the Wild: A Black Feather Guide

‘Over 50 years combined outdoor cooking experience.’

Between them, the authors of Camp Cooking in the Wild have over 50 years of wilderness cooking experience. 20 of those years belong to Wendy Grater, founder of Black Feather outdoor adventures.

What’s not included in Camp Cooking in the Wild, probably isn’t worth knowing, in our opinion. Learn how to forage and prepare food safely, and how to take food you’ve brought along with you, and cook it well without the use of a full kitchen.

Field cooking can be more challenging than you think, but by following the advice of these three wonderful professionals, you’ll never be too far from a good meal, whatever resources you’re beginning with. Highly recommended, essential reading.
