From the cover: “A cool drizzly day in camp, and a quick savoury lunch needed: try Five-Minute Chowder, Danish Egg-and-Bacon Cake, Poor Knights of Windsor, and hot coffee. Or, for a Mediterranean noon, Chilled Sorrento Soup, Salad Pollensa, crusty bread, fruit, and a fresh lemon pick-me-up. Or, on a windswept fellside with evening drawing in fast, Caraway Steak Pudding, carrots and peas, and Jamaica Bananas to follow. Scrambled eggs for breakfast, Tahiti chicken for a celebration dinner, Cheese Dip and pate and salad for a party. Simple traditional dishes like Fish Pie and Rice Pudding, and ribstickers like Sheep’s Head Broth, Irish Stew and Spotted Dick; pancakes to please the children, and brisket to fill the men; the elegance of baked lobster, and Slumgullion, the old seamen’s standby: all are here, and many more besides.
This splendid cookbook is packed with information, advice, and ideas. In addition to the ten main recipe sections, there are chapters on basic recipes, beverages, and the preparing and cooking of vegetables and fruit. The introductory section covers, in detail, outdoor cooking methods and equipment; and the appendices include check lists of outdoor cooking aids, a glossary of terms, advice on first aid, and ‘Nature’s larder’.
Jack Cox believes that outdoor cooking should above all be enjoyable. He writes in a practical spirit, ranging from the catching of fresh mackerel to making full use of convenience foods, and has here set down the experience of many years of outdoor activity to make a book that is cheerful, lucid, and written with relish.”
