Bringing rich flavors to the great outdoors, this mouthwatering collection of recipes by Sarah Glover evokes the sights, smells, and tastes of the Australian wilderness.
Sarah Glover loves to cook, whether it’s on the edge of a windswept cliff, in a clearing in the forest, or on a sandy stretch of beach. Although she’s made a career as a chef in Australia and New York City, her heart lives outdoors. Filled with gorgeous photographs from the shores of Tasmania and beaches of Sydney to the mountains of Australia’s east coast, this cookbook shares her recipes and secrets to inspire others to cook and eat outside. She offers tips for preparing food over an open flame as well as a list of basic outdoor cooking equipment. Anyone who thinks camping food begins and ends with coffee and toasted marshmallows will be surprised to discover how easy it is to create a stunning four-course meal with a few pots and one fire. From solid staples like tender roast chicken and potatoes to dinner-party-worthy kumquat bellinis and quail with truffles, Glover sets the stage for any kind of outdoor experience. Her recipes are simple and straightforward–often involving only a handful of ingredients–and her instructions are breezy and clear. Whether it’s a quiet retreat in nature or a dawn-to-dusk beach party, Sarah Glover has a menu that will satisfy your hunger for fresh, modern food eaten in the great outdoors.
