Camps Community Cook Book

68 reviews

136 pages, soft cover, 24.5cm x 19cm, published 2020, printed in Australia

Turn the chore of deciding what to cook into wonderful memory-making moments with the Camps Community Cookbook.  Filled with over 100 tried and true delicious recipes contributed by the Camps Australia Wide community. 

Recipes cover favourite breakfasts, lunches, dinners, breads, baking, dealing with leftovers and treats for happy hours!

Each recipe is quick and easy with the majority having few ingredients - perfect for those ‘Mother Hubbard’ moments, or just when you want to travel lightly!

We've embraced the ethos of camp cooking and the recipes are suitable for a range of cooking facilities – from the creature comforts of microwaves, stovetops, ovens and grills (or a full outdoor kitchen if you’re lucky to have one!) to the basics of a BBQ plate, Weber, Bushpig, camp oven and an old-fashioned jaffle iron. And sticks for marshmallows, of course!

Be encouraged to try something new next time you’re on the road and feeling hungry. Or give a Cookbook as a gift, it makes the perfect present for the keen camper!

Product Info

The Camps Cookbook includes:

  • Over 100 loved recipes
  • Helpful instructions with metric measurements (we’ve kept each recipe in the style it was sent to us, to keep the authenticity of the contributor. Instructions are mostly metric, with a few inches left in. It is a ‘bit of this and that’ with some of these - measurements are not always exact. So, if it says a dash or approximately, it is permission to improvise.)
  • Full colour photos of nearly every recipe
  • All versatile – using camp oven, BBQ, thermal and slow cookers as well as gas stoves, ovens and microwaves.
  • Includes each contributor’s favourite 'must dos' and campsites - You'll love hearing about everyone’s favourite camping spots and caravan parks, and their “must see and do” recommendations in Australia.
  • Plus the best memories of cooking each contributed recipe - What is even more enticing are the memories that have been recorded with each featured recipe. Read about camping traditions – meals that are perfect for the first night, some always saved for the last night, and other recipes handed down over generations. Stories tell of wildlife, mozzies and striking gold and many more!
  • Recipe names to make you smile... One recipe is called 'When the Fridge is Empty’, another ‘Dick’s Mix-Up’. There’s no mistaking that these recipes were created by Aussies, people travelling with their Camps Australia Wide guides. From rabbit stew to a vegetarian’s delight – even FODMAPS, and keto rates a mention!
  • Meals & starters, breads & basics... You’ll find salads, stews, roasts, curries, stir fries, different cuisines and more one-pot wonders. There’s a dedicated section to the all-important camping staple of damper.
  • Sweet treats are also on offer...Puddings, giant biscuits, chocolate brownies – plus an ice-cream you can make in the bush! Now that’s living!
  • Value for money ingredients - Loads of inexpensive options using mince, tuna, and great innovations with sausages! Some for feeding a crowd, and plenty of meals here for one or two.
  • Camp Cooking Know How and extra advice - Handy tips for the campfire, groceries on the road, knowledge for those on the long haul or travelling with families.

    Just right

    The size suits due to poorer eyesight. It is a very hard big book, so not as flexible as the smaller size (we had that in the past). Maps seem good.

    I found it very interesting to see how other people make cooking while camping or caravanning. We have been caravanning for the last 16 years and am interested in the ways other people can make interesting meals with what they carry. Patsy
