Not sure I would recommend this book as much as Camp Cooking in the Wild but there is merit to owning this book. I like that the Easton’s included information on how to incorporate foraged foods. To me, that’s a big plus because I love to forage. Their recipes are far more simple, as well, which is nice when you are cooking with children.
I like that they offer menus with shopping lists to make preparation super simple. Not only that but they offer different menus based on age. They even offer a vegetarian alternative.
The book is broken up into environments such as the beach or the woods. While much of the food is easy to prepare – they encourage a wide range of flavors and styles of cooking. I never thought about grilling a butterflied leg of lamb while camping but I love the idea. The more I look at the recipes the more I love this book. I love ethnic food and this book is full of kid friendly foreign foods that we can make while out on vacation or adapt to make at home.
