I often receive questions about using the Glorious One-Pot Meal cooking method for camping, so today I thought I’d share a testimonial as to how well Glorious One-Pot Meal recipes work for campers:
I found your book at our library when I was looking for Dutch oven recipes. My husband and I plan to do some camping next summer, and I was wanting some “good food” Dutch oven recipes as opposed to “camping food” recipes. I thought it would take all year to get a few “special” recipes. So far, we’ve tried three recipes (pork and quinoa, mac and cheese, and rosemary salmon), with very good results. Your recipes are what I was looking for portion-wise, taste-wise, and flexibility-wise. I’ve been putting our old-school cast iron Dutch oven in our camping stove (we have the smallest Big Green Egg), with very good results. I love the “it’s done when the smells release” theory of cooking.
I plan to buy the book when I have to return it to the library, have already recommended it to a friend, and plan to give it (with a 2-quart Dutch oven) to a young friend who’s getting married in a few months.
