Camping fare typically includes burgers and hot dogs, and while these are certainly easy, get ready to rethink the cuisine that can be savored over the open flame. With recipes like Spiced Currant Scones, Maple-Glazed Salmon, and Tomato Tarte Tatin, Huck and Young celebrate delicious food and the great outdoors. They also include step-by-step instructions for activities such as stargazing, foraging for woodland berries, and minding one's fruits of the sea (or, how to clean a fish). Campfire Cookery proves that the campfire can not only be a blissful escape but a true culinary destination.

Praise for Campfire Cookery:

“Co-authors Sarah Huck and Jaimee Young provide the inspiration and wherewithal to make campfire cooking civilized and delicious.”
Wall Street Journal

“Get inspired by the outdoor culinary flair.”

"Sarah Huck and Jaimee Young were wise enough to put a photo of the old-fashioned campfire favorite on the cover of their new Campfire Cookery. They also were wise enough to include campfire cocktail recipes to wash the s'mores down."
-USA Today

Campfire Cookery is one of those cookbooks you need to buy two of.”
—Edible Brooklyn

“The beauty of this book is that it evokes a simpler era when things weren’t automatic, when all cooking required the primal flame, and when cooking and eating was more than just about the food.”
