Campfire Cuisine - Must Have Book for Camping

Campfire Cuisine - Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors shows there's certainly more to campfire cooking than burgers and hot dogs!

Containing over 100 recipes that can be made whilst camping or in any outdoor setting.  That said, every recipe comes with a little note if your wanting to make the same recipe at home, so this book isn't just for campers!  A lovely chubby book is about the size of your hand which means it's easy to take with you.

What sort of recipes will I find in this book?
Covering a wide range of delicious sounding recipes from Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Figs (sounds good to me) to Bananas Foster French Toast, Grilled Vegetable Salad with Goat Cheese,
Salmon with Balsamic Fig Sauce, Spicy Orange Chicken, Jambalaya to Maple-Caramel Baked Apples.  There are loads of marinades, sauces and flavoured butters that can be easily rustled up too.
This book is American, will I be able to buy the ingredients easily?
In a word, yes.  Looking through, I haven't come across any ingredients that we can't easily get here in the UK. 

Always good to have in a recipe book is a conversion chart from US to metric.
There's another handy chart 'Is is Done Yet'? which shows approximate cooking times for seafood, meat and poultry, vegetables and fruit on the grill.  

Campfire Cuisine also includes tips and advice on meal planning, shopping, and equipment selection for campfire cooking.
There's even a sample meal plan for a three-day trip.
