Camps Community Cook Book

45 reviews

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 community!

We've embraced the ethos of camp cooking - some travellers are on the road for months on end and travel with creature comforts. Microwaves, stovetops, ovens and grills could all be on board - and some with an outdoor kitchen to boot!

Others go for a weekend, and camping means basic ingredients only, and basic cooking. Maybe with a BBQ plate and an old fashioned jaffle iron thrown in. And sticks for marshmallows, of course!

More and more, we’re finding foodies showing off their outdoor cooking, experimenting with their recipes and in love with their Weber, Bushpig and camp oven.

The majority of the recipes in this book have few ingredients - perfect for those ‘Mother Hubbard’ moments, or just when you want to travel lightly.

We’ve kept it in the style it was sent to us, to keep the authenticity of the contributor. It is 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.

Be encouraged to experiment yourself, and perhaps develop variations for you or your family. Try adding some Aussie bush tucker for flavour. We’d love to hear how you go.

Best memories of cooking each 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!

Some recipe names 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!
