Books for Cooks: “Campfire Cuisine: Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors”

By The Spokesman-Review
 

Roasting marshmallows and hot dogs on a stick is for culinary sissies. Just because you’re cooking over a campfire doesn’t mean the dinner has to be seasoned with a can of mushroom soup.

Author Robin Donovan’s “Campfire Cuisine” is for foodies who also like to hike, camp and backpack. There are 100 recipes in the book, which includes tips for making the dish at home, has some great ideas for marinades, sauces and rubs that will dress up any meal. Bananas Foster French Toast for breakfast, White Bean and Roasted Garlic Salad with Grilled Zucchini for lunch, Fish Cooked with Curried Couscous for dinner and Rum Baked Peaches for dessert? It’s enough to make anyone love camping.

Look inside today’s food section for a recipe for Grilled Flank Steak with Yogurt Mint Sauce.
