    “The variety of dishes that Huck and Young present as possibilities for preparing and cooking outdoors is rather astounding and pleasantly surprising” (Epicurious).   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 Cream Scones, Maple-Glazed Wild 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 cannot only be a blissful escape but a true culinary destination.   “It is the rare cookbook that has even the camping-averse actually contemplating a weekend of mosquitoes and sweaty sleeping bags  . . . But really, we simply love the recipes.” —LA Weekly
