Synopsis: A collection of recipes utilizing alternative cooking methods primarily outdoor fires.
My rating: 3 Stars
My opinion: This is the most unusual cookbook that I have reviewed from Storey Publishing. Cool, but unusual.
If you are looking for a "Weber" or grill cookbook...this isn't it. This isn't a cooking hot dogs on a camp fire cookbook either.
This is a really unique cookbook for cooking on open fire in pits, etc. It included "plans" for building an open wood fire oven outdoors. I am just not sure how many of the recipes or techniques were truly "practical".
There were a number of recipes, such as rabbit or fish chowder (to name a few), that I wouldn't eat. There were also several recipes that I would be concerned with the thoroughness of cooking.
I didn't think that this was a cookbook for a novice. I must admit that there were numerous recipes that I felt would challenge my cooking skills.
