Outdoor experts, celebrities, and industry leaders share their favorite trail recipes--and why they hold a special place in their heart. Some of these recipes are prized for their outdoor practicality and functionality, such as Lead Bread (a brick-like loaf that will keep indefinitely and survive even an air drop). But then there are gourmet offerings (Cashew-Ginger Chicken and Rice and Trail Tiramisu) and ideas on preparing wild foods (Cooked Stinging Nettles). This cookbook is as much about the people behind the recipes and their adventures--and misadventures--in the outdoors. Hear the story behind the titling of Angry Moose Scrambled Eggs. Learn why outdoor writer Tim Cahill needs Fat Cocoa to guarantee a warm night's sleep; understand the expedition fare philosophy of mountaineer Jim Whittaker; and why Celebration Cous Cous was special for writer-conservationists Laura and Guy Waterman. Each of these recipes has been tested by Mountaineers Books staff and friends.
