    If you are one of the new types of campers who take their vehicle to a drive up tent site, or who uses a trailer/RV, then this is exactly the kind of book you need. The New Camp Cookbook Gourmet Grub for Campers, Roadtrippers, and Adventurers by Linda Ly, is not for the wilderness, hike to the middle-of-nowhere camper. Covering all the necessary cooking techniques, like using a camp stove, a grill, a Dutch oven, or even an open fire, this book has a little bit of everything for the gourmet If you are one of the new types of campers who take their vehicle to a drive up tent site, or who uses a trailer/RV, then this is exactly the kind of book you need. The New Camp Cookbook – Gourmet Grub for Campers, Roadtrippers, and Adventurers by Linda Ly, is not for the wilderness, hike to the middle-of-nowhere camper. Covering all the necessary cooking techniques, like using a camp stove, a grill, a Dutch oven, or even an open fire, this book has a little bit of everything for the gourmet camper. Starting with “Setting Up A Camp Kitchen”, the book explains everything about gathering your gear. It includes what essential equipment you need to take, what’s great to have but you don’t really need, and stocking your pantry. The detail for setting up your camp kitchen is excellent, it covers everything you’ll need to know and need to take with you. Trying to find knick-knacks and an extra bowl or that essential piece of kitchen equipment while you’re at your campsite might be difficult, so this is an essential read. “Setting Up A Camp Kitchen” even includes a section on how to properly build a fire, which anybody who’s gone to Scouts or Guides has learned, but everybody else needs to master. Essential grilling techniques and toolbox are covered thoroughly. Cooking in foil is also covered, an excellent way to create several dishes which would otherwise be difficult over a campfire or cook stove. “Cooking In A Dutch Oven” will give you the information you need for baking, roasting, and stewing, as well as steaming, browning, boiling, and cooking anything that requires high heat. Lastly, you will find “Cooking On A Camp Stove”, short sweet and to the point. For those cooking in high-altitude, there are a couple of quick tips. Of course, any good camping cookbook would not be complete without an excellent “Food And Forest Safety” guide. This book even comes complete with “Safe Storage Times For Chilled Foods” chart, and “Safe Internal Temperatures For Cooked Meats”. You even get tips on washing up and camping in bear country. The next chapter, “Rise And Shine”, covers all of your breakfast related recipes with lots of lovely full-color pictures. These are not your typical camp related recipes. The first recipe being Blueberry Skillet Scones with Lemon Glaze is absolutely delicious looking and certainly not what I would have considered camping food before now. Many of the recipes include tips which are especially helpful. Some of the tips fall under the “Use It Up” category which advises how to make the best use of your ingredients. For instance, rather than buying an entire tub of cream cheese just to use in one recipe, the tips advise what other recipes make use of it too. Other tips cover the “Mix It Up” category, which explains where to use your own ingredients to personalize your recipes. “MidDay Meals” is exactly as it sounds, lunches. There’s an excellent selection of sandwiches, soups, salads, and vegetables. That’s not all though, there are lovely wraps, pizzas, tacos, and so much more, even a lovely chart “The Go-To Guide For Grilling Vegetables”. This guide gives you the vegetable preparation method and approximate grilling time so you’ll know exactly what it will take to cook them to perfection. The “Small Bites” chapter covers trail mix, snacks, happy-hour late night nibbles, and other deliciousness. “Grilled Guacamole” is the first recipe. It just gets better from there. There’s even a recipe for “Grilled Watermelon With Gorgonzola And Pistachio Crumbles” which is extremely surprising. Who knew you could grill watermelon? And I had no idea pairing Watermelon with Pistachio and Gorgonzola could work. The “Camp Feasts” chapter is next, covering everything from skewers to stews, stove top skillets, and so much more. Six different flavored butter recipes get their own page. If you want a gourmet meal at your campsite this is your go-to chapter. Six Types Of Smores! “Sips And Sweets” offers cocktails and desserts. The recipe for Honey Bourbon Lemonade looks absolutely decadent and comes with excellent variations. “Sips And Sweets” even offers six different ways to make Smores with lots of little tips! I only ever thought there was the one method. I guess you learn something new every day. The very back of the book includes a small “Resources” section for everything from Espresso Makers to Charcoal Grills. For the recipe, I was going to choose one of the pizzas. The pizza dough itself was kind of confusing though. In the recipe, it calls for letting it rise at room temperature for an hour or an hour and 1/2. I was kind of wondering how one achieves room temperature when one is not in a room. It would be somewhat difficult in the great outdoors. Apparently is it something you make at home and freeze to take with you. Because I wouldn’t be able to make all of the recipes at the campsite, I was disappointed. In all, take this book with you if you’re planning on a trip with a vehicle to lug your stuff. See the full review with autumn inspired Sweet Potato, Apple, And Pancetta Hash recipe at the RecipesNow! Review and Recipes Magazine. This review is based on a hard copy of the book sent to me by the publishers in return for an honest review.

    I love, love, love this cookbook! These aren't the recipes you're going to carry deep into the backcountry, but if you're car camping or canoeing these are fantastic! A lot of these recipes work just as well at home as in the field. Excellent pictures and clear instructions throughout.

    tl;dr: pretty book for people who car camp. Not even remotely for people who actually camp. This book leaves me a bit conflicted. I bought it in the excited haze of the beginning of camping season, even though I was a little skeptical after taking a first glance. It's beautiful, with lots of gorgeous shots of delicious-looking food in all sorts of scenic outdoor locations. It has some decent advice for beginners. But it's not a camping cookbook, by any means.

It's beautiful, with lots of gorgeous shots of delicious-looking food in all sorts of scenic outdoor locations. It has some decent advice for beginners. But it's not a camping cookbook, by any means. The problem is between what I was expecting this book to be, and what it actually is. I've spent a good amount of time camping, and when I was younger, my approach was very minimalist. After introducing my not-outdoorsy husband to this whole camping thing, I made some changes - bigger tent, comfier air mattress, dual burner stove, cooler bag, and canoe camping only, with lots of multi-day stays at one spot and no long portages (hubby is not a fan of light-weight backpacking accommodations. Or bugs.) Even with those changes, many of the recipes in this book would not be useful for us. For an easy flat water overnight, for exclusively car camping, for a cottager or someone in a RV, this might work. Anyone who talks about setting up a "bar area" at their campsite, with pictures showing several full-size bottles of booze, is doing a much different type of camping than most people I know. Anybody who is bringing glass bottles of anything camping is really stretching that term. Contrary to the clueless blogger on the back who stated: "This book should be considered essential gear in the backpack of every hiker, camper, nature lover, or fan of delicious food," this is not a book that would ever go in anyone's backpack. This is not a book for hikers and backpackers. This is a book for people who take a fully-loaded SUV, with several coolers, some bluetooth speakers and a disco ball and pull up at car camping sites, then stay there for a week. If you had to carry all the food for these recipes and the recommended kitchen "essentials," packing up and moving at each step along a trip, you would very quickly stop camping. For a cookbook to sit on my shelf and look pretty, this one is great. For actual usefulness for camping, at least for the style of camping and road tripping I do, it's pretty worthless. It's an impulse buy that will most likely be returned.

    I was given the opportunity via NetGalley to read an electronic copy of The New Camp Cookbook. I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given. The New Camp Cookbook is divided into sections, such as Setting up your camp kitchen, Rise and Shine, Midday Meals, Small Bites, Camp Feasts, and Sips & Sweets.

I was under no obligation to review this book and my opinion is freely given. The New Camp Cookbook is divided into sections, such as Setting up your camp kitchen, Rise and Shine, Midday Meals, Small Bites, Camp Feasts, and Sips & Sweets. I like that the author takes the time to go through how to make a proper campfire for cooking, as well as reviewing important concepts like food safety and storage times for chilled foods. Many of these recipes are more involved than the usual camping fare, but the author does make it seem like a possibility. With many preparations done at home, the recipes from the book can be accomplished with minimal fuss. My favorite breakfast recipe is Grilled French Toast and Bacon Bites, a hearty dish that is playful and delicious. Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons is a deceptively simple recipe, one that could easily be made at home as well. The author includes two variations for Camp Crostini, but users of this cookbook can use their own favorite ingredients for personal taste. For campers who are avid fishermen and women, nothing can be better than making Foil-baked Fish with Lemon-dill Couscous with freshly caught fish. Sips and Sweets include many quick recipes for drinks, such as hot chocolate and mulled cider, and treats like S'mores and Dutch Oven Strawberry-rhubarb Cobbler. It must be stressed that this is not a cookbook for backpackers, as there are too many recipes that use canned goods and bottles of oil or beer, to make it feasible to carry long distance. The New Camp Cookbook is for foodies who want to bring a little sophistication to the average camp fare. The tips and hints were the more valuable pieces of information for me, but many of the recipes are simply not ones that I would take on the road. There are many, however, that I would try using my gas grill or my home stove, as the flavors and ingredients that the author uses are appealing to me. I would recommend The New Camp Cookbook for readers who are looking for a more elegant camping experience, instead of the usual steak and potatoes, or hotdogs and hamburgers.

    3.5 stars. This cookbook has great basic information for equipment to take on a camping trip. It features quite a few Dutch oven recipes. Each recipe has an icon denoting how it is cooked-- Grill, Dutch oven, campfire, camp stove-- which is very helpful. There are also notes for recipes on how to use up the rest of an ingredient used in that recipe-- for example, how to use the rest of the buttermilk you've opened for pancakes. I wish all cookbooks had that! The recipes in this book are for 3.5 stars. This cookbook has great basic information for equipment to take on a camping trip.

There are several fresh fish recipes, which would be helpful if you're fishing but I'm unlikely to put an entire red snapper in my cooler. There is a recipe for making fresh pizza dough pizza in a Dutch oven. There are also some yummy-looking drink recipes. These are absolutely car camping recipes, and I'd say they are targeted to adults. They look delicious but definitely demand a lot of time at the camp kitchen. If that's your happy place, you will love this cookbook. If you are chasing around little kids and trying to just get food on the table as soon as possible, you might not enjoy this book. Thanks to Netgalley and Quarto Publishing for providing a galley of this book. My thoughts are my own.

    The New Camp Cookbook by Linda Ly is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early August. Faintly similar to the atmosphere for a cookbook I read earlier, called Best Served Wild, this book approaches camping food of breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks with a fully outfitted site that has cold storage, a grill, chimney starter (my personal favorite piece of equipment from Girl Scout camp), and one or two Dutch ovens. *thumbs up* My kind of place.

    I love a good car camping trip as much as the next guy, and appreciate the detailed gear, pantry and recipe lists in The New Camp Cookbook. This cookbook really counts on your bringing a good cooler, and being able to cook over an open fire or on a camp stove. That being said, there are plenty of tasty recipes provided here. Being tasked with menu planning for a three day fall backpacking trip, I was hoping for a little more in the non-refrigerated/cooler recipe ideas, and though they were not I love a good car camping trip as much as the next guy, and appreciate the detailed gear, pantry and recipe lists in “The New Camp Cookbook”.

We won’t be packing as light as freeze-dried, but boy will we be eating better.

    Lucked out and got to take a look at this one thanks to Netgalley. I love that that this book has pictures, so many full colour pictures, to help see what the recipe could look like and what some of the camp terms are too. I'm a pretty experienced camper so skimmed some of the basics (like fire building terms) but can see that this would be super helpful for new campers! I'm excited to try some of these recipes during our next trip, these will shake us out of the usual camp food rut I think!

    I love how this book takes out any guess work. You get the items to pack and full descriptions and illustrations of how to prepare the food. There are many great recipes along with the instructions for utensils and cook wear. It makes it easy even for the novice camper or someone who camps often but would like a wider variety of food on the trip.

    I made the Skewer French Toast and Bacon over a fire on my last camping trip, as well as the potatoes with scallions foil packets, and the chimichurri sauce for steak. All of it came out very nicely. I highly recommend this book.

    I really enjoyed the mix of basic information and gorgeous photographs. This is a wonderful cookbook for anyone who wants to learn more about cooking on outdoor fire. TBH, I haven't used any of the specific recipes yet, so far I have used it more as a reference and guide.
