Cooking outdoors can be magical, so break out of the kitchen, light your fire, and enjoy delicious recipes you can rustle up when camping, dining al fresco, enjoying some beachside living, or having an off-the-grid adventure.

Chef Nico Stanitzok and lifelong camper Viola Lex have teamed up to create more than 80 sweet and savory camping recipes. Alongside traditional campfire favorites such as BBQ chicken, grilled corn on the cob, and kebab skewers, you’ll find recipes for breads, grilled Camembert, pancakes, and even chocolate cakes baked inside oranges. The eclectic mix of recipes will satisfy the more adventurous outdoor cook, while the step-by-step instructions and mouthwatering photography make the recipes easy to follow and suitable for those new to outdoor cooking.

Each recipe has a symbol that tells you which is the best way to cook the dish, be it an open fire, grill, or camping stove. Cook up glorious feasts regardless of whether you’re at a festival, in an RV on the open road, wilderness or primitive camping out on the trail, “glamping,” or simply campfire cooking on a picnic at the beach. As well as outdoor cooking hacks and tips, you’ll find checklists of camping essentials and basic recipes for camping must-haves such as BBQ sauce, ketchup, and dukkah, and even a fun questionnaire to help you decide what kind of camper you are.

The Campfire Cookbook is the ultimate cookbook for open-air cooks who love to explore.

● The number of people camping in the US and Canada has seen significant growth. The 2018 North American Camping Report revealed that “77 million US households have someone who camps at least occasionally.”

● Forbes published an article in April 2018 reporting that Millennials and Gen Xers make up three quarters of all campers in North America (while Millennials alone make up 40%), suggesting that this is a growing rather than aging trend.

● There has been a rise in the number of people buying RVs in the US; the RV Industry Association reports that sales are up 12.2% over the same month in 2017, in an $887 billion industry.

● The recipes cater to basic camping equipment as well as better-equipped portable kitchens, making this book relevant for people choosing to “glamp,” a trend that is expected to continue to grow worldwide as more people seek experiential holidays. (In 2017 IBIS Worldwide reported a £3bn revenue in the glamping business in the UK; the Global Glamping Summit acknowledged that the industry is poised to take off in the US.)

● The number of outdoor events and festivals increased significantly during the last decade. More than 32 million people in the US attend at least one music festival per year, often accompanied by camping.

● Tailgating before sports events is another place outdoor cooking comes into play in the US. A study from the University of Minnesota estimated that up to 18 percent of people attending football games at all levels have tailgate parties before the game (for a total of approximately 3.12 million people annually).

● Wild cooking and fire cooking have also risen in popularity, a trend led by celebrity chefs such as Francis Mallman, who appeared on the Netflix show Chef’s Table.

● More than 80 sweet and savory recipes from barbecued meats, kebab skewers, and pizzas to stews, salads, bread, and cakes.

● 125 mouthwatering photographs of recipes and fun, evocative, atmospheric camping shots.

● Includes basic recipes for camping pantry essentials including ketchup, BBQ sauce, and muesli.

● Includes a guide and checklist of camping essentials.

● Helpful advice on the best outdoor cooking hacks.
