We're experienced backpackers and canoeists, and we take the time to plan and cook really good meals when we're on the trail. There are good concepts in this book for drying and combining foods, but I found most of the actual recipes disappointing. I buy these cooks for the cooked lunch and supper recipes, not for the "cold meals" or "baked goods" that I can find in any regular cookbook. No disrespect to the author intended, here...if you're OK with the "nutrition first, taste and texture second" approach, then you'll be fine with these recipes, and to be fair, many people are perfectly happy with this approach. I found though that the cooked meals tended to be the consistency of porridge, and many of them were just variations of the same recipe. For example, nearly all of the stews are based on tomatoes, and many breakfasts involve frying up a "hash" of eggs and other ingredients, then drying them and reconstituting by adding water and bringing to a boil. The Complete Book of Trail Food and A Fork in the Trail contained recipes that we use all the time and I would recommend those to people looking for something a little extra in their food packs.

I noticed this book at the library and checked it out because I really liked Ms. Yaffe's previous book of recipes High Trail Cookery. Now I'm going to buy it. This book provides even more great recipes that you can make ahead and dehydrate - making camping meals carefree and delicious.

Excellent guide with some interesting recipes for backpacking. Used mostly as a guideline and modified the recipes to accomodate my own tastes, but certainly some delicious ideas in there as well!
