From the book intro: Let’s have fun in the great out-of-doors, where the blue sky is our roof and where the ever changing beauty of streams, lakes and hills makes food taste so much better than it ever could in the familiar confines of the family dining room!
Those of us who already are backyard chefs will find in this booklet many suggestions which make outdoor cooking much easier; plus culinary hints and recipes which are refreshing changes from the unimaginative frankfurters and hamburgsandwiches which too often become a habit.
Those who never have tried outdoor cooking before should find that preparing good food is much simpler than the uninitiated might suppose.
