Campfire Cuisine is subtitled Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors. When I came across the description I was excited at the thought of expanding the range of options for our regular canoe wilderness excursions into the BWCA and the Quetico. What a letdown. The author clearly never portages his food, let alone thinks about carrying provisions for a multi-day hike. The recipes are fit for car camping where the SUV has room for the oversized Coleman cooler. Large amounts of dairy and other liquid ...more

My family of three have recently begun short (1, 2, or 3 night) car camping trips. Though my wife and I have both done a bit of camping years ago, I would rate us as novice campers at this point. So, we are relearning about camping gear in general and haven't checked out very many books on camp food. Having said that, this book, if it has done nothing else, has gotten us excited about having good and fun food on our trips. I haven't made any of the recipes yet, but there are plenty I'm intereste ...more

I bought this last year and made some recipes from it that I really enjoyed, then sort of forgot about it (on my kindle) after Summer ended. I went back and actually read the whole thing this summer and have been cooking from it more while camping and at home. Lots of really enjoyable recipes that are pretty easy, but really tasty and use real food instead of some of the weird things you find in "camping recipes". If your idea of tasty camp food is boxed mac and cheese, ramen, or oatmeal for eve ...more

I love the easy recipes and the ones I've tried out have tasted great. I also like the fact that some of the dishes can be pre-made and then just warmed up while camping. This book will be coming along on many camping trips!
Create With Joy
Imagine this scenario:

You are going on a camping trip with your family and a few friends. You are responsible for planning all of your family’s meals and snacks.

What does your menu look like?

If your shopping list is full of clichéd choices such as hotdogs, canned goods, and marshmallows to put on a stick, perhaps it’s time for a menu makeover!

If so, Robin Donovan is here to help.

In Campfire Cuisine – Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors, Robin teaches you how to take outdoor cooking to a new

Just finished making my way through the recipes - I really like this book! Most of the recipes are indeed something I'd consider making at home, though not exactly what I'd think of to take into the woods with me.
Though many are fairly complicated - aka I'd have to upgrade my equipment in order to make some of these dishes for more than 2 people - I think the number of recipes that you can partially prepare before you leave make this great for a 1-3 night camping trip. So, if you're craving deli

Some fun recipes. Scored me bonus points with my friends and family on a recent trip. I think I've made a friend for life with the cheesy s'mores and my almost 3 year old niece stole cucumber salad from my plate when she ran out of hers but my favorite was bananas foster french toast. Nom.

I have not attempted making a recipe yet, but I have found many that are mouthwatering. I was a bit concerned when I received this book, because I don't camp, but the recipes make great dishes for at home or for the next potluck. The directions are clear and if a recipe calls for something discussed earlier in the book, it gives you the page number right there, so it is easy to reference. I'm very excited to try some new recipes for dinner next week!
