There is nothing more satisfying than enjoying a good meal at the end of a long day in the great outdoors. After personal safety and comfort, the quality and quantity of food can make or break an adventure trip. In The Outdoor Chef, author Dian Weimer shows hungry readers how to pack, carry, and cook great outdoor meals that help make the experience memorable--for all the right reasons. She offers over 100 expedition-tested recipes for satisfying camp meals, plus valuable planning and packing strategies. With a little thought and some time preparing menus in advance, happy eating on a hiking, canoe, rafting, or kayak trip can be as much a part of the adventure as the destination.
