Format: Paperback
I have been canoe camping for over 20 years now (including working as a guide) and have tried every camping recipe book out there for new ideas. This is one of the best. Lots of great new recipes, plus a fantastic reference section on techniques and tips for drying food. I've tested out a few recipes at home and they have all been top notch. If you buy just one trail cookbook, make it this one!

This has a range of very good recipes and includes an excellent section on the techniques for drying and preparing the ingredients. It's a good book for both beginners and those looking for recipes with more variety. I do wish that writers of such books wouldn't bother with recipes that we can get in any other cookbook, like cookies, granola, drink mixes etc. I'd rather see more time dedicated to cooked meals.

I tried a few recipies and they are all very tasty.

The only thing is that they didn't put the nutrition fact for each recipie... makes it complicated to count the calories I need to go backpacking.

Must have for backpackers May 23 2010
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am really avid in the outdoors and have been wanting to get into dehydrating my own food for meals. I finally purchased an Excalibur food dehydrator (amazing) and got this book as well. I do not have experience with dehydrating at all. However, every food that I have attempted has been coming out just fine following the directions in this book and my kids are loving the fruit leathers. One thing I really like about this book is the fact that it also explains how to dehydrate beans, tofu, grains, and dairy. A lot of dehydrating books don't include those things but those are staples for backpackers and really open up possibilities with your menus. Another thing I really like about this book is that it accounts for food safety issues related to dehydrating. For example, they recommend that only fully cooked meats be used for making jerky and they explain how to do that. One of the authors, Don Mercer is in food science so I really feel safe in making and using my own foods by following their recommendations.

After the book explains how to dehydrate all sorts of foods, pages 94-248 are recipes broken up by breakfast, main courses, sides, snacks, desserts, and beverages. There are more recipes in here than I'll ever be able to try but it's great to have variety to pick out my favorites and start experimenting on my own.

Overall, if you're wanting to get into dehydrating your own foods, for whatever reason, this book is an amazing value. If I had to start from scratch on figuring out times and temperatures for various foods I would have wasted a lot more money on food experimentation. This books helps a person just get down to business and start producing some great food.

And by they way, if you are new to dehydrating, I highly recommend getting the best dehydrator you can afford (and there are plenty of affordable ones). It will be well worth it and will give a better end result.

Terririd recipes for camping! July 12 2010
By Cookbook Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love this book as it contains the best and easiest recipes for camping and wilderness enthusiasts like me! It is wonderful to know exactly what you're eating when you're away from the comforts of home, it's far more economical to make your own food (rather than eating pre-packaged processed food), and this book even allows ume to customize recipes in order to suit my family's taste.

The Complete Trail Cookbook contains recipes for breakfast - delicious Vanilla Cinnamon French Toast, Banana Nut Oatmeal, Blueberry Pancakes, etc; for lunch and dinner - flavorful Curried Chicken with Apples, Easy Mushroom Risotto, Fire-Grilled Fish, among others. It also contains side dishes, high energy snacks, desserts and beverages. Everything you need for that trip this summer.

This is THE definitive book for camping and trail food - what a great way to enjoy natural foods in the great outdoors!

Are you Emeril Lagasse? April 29 2013
By Chadillac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I felt the recipes were good, nothing wrong with that. But this kind of food is for someone that drives up to a campsite or has a horse and buggy. I backpack and try to keep my gear load down to 30 pounds. I felt the recipes were a little to intricate for making a wholesome meal after hiking 10+ miles with 30 pounds on your back. I'm not complaining about weight. I'm in incredible shape and have carried more than 50 pounds of weight for trips that don't offer resupply (i.e. water). I just want a tasty meal without 30 minutes of preparation.

Great collection of easy recipes for the trail Jan. 5 2013
By Dustin J. Schwobe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the second trail cookbook that I've purchased. In contrast to the first one, this book is a lot easier to use. Rather than cooking up entire meals and then dehydrating them, the recipes in this book call for dehydrated ingredients, which you then mix with water on the trail and cook for your meal. This makes the dehydration process much faster and simpler.

I've found the selection of recipes to be varied, and I've enjoyed all of the recipes that I've tried so far. I'd recommend the book to anyone who wants to start saving a ton of money by packing their own food for trips on the trail.

Similar Food Dehydrating guide as their original Dec 27 2012
By R. Griffith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really REALLY love their original Food Dehydration Bible, so when I came across this title with the same authors, I instantly decided this to be a must-have.

Upon delivery, I realized this was a pretty darn close replica of the Food Dehydration Bible and that a few recipes and section titles were rearranged to tailor it to more of a backpacker. While that's a great idea to cater to separate markets, I wish I had known this before purchasing it since there was barely, if any, new material.

Good book to have if you don't have the other...so just make sure you own ONE of the copies!
