In her first cookbook, James Beard award-nominated Sarah Glover showed the world how liberating, satisfying, and easy it is to cook beautiful healthy food outdoors. Now, with WILDCHILD: ADVENTURE COOKING WITH KIDS, she brings kids of all ages into the mix, proving that they too can take part in collecting, preparing, and cooking campfire meals the whole family can enjoy. Glover’s simple yet elegant meals are inspired by the land and the sea: fish and ears of corn dangled on a stick over an open flame; perfect bread baked directly on hot coals; kale and potatoes simmered in saltwater; eggs fried alongside spicy sausage and toast; chili-brined cherry tomatoes–and more. Glover emphasizes fresh seasonal food that can be acquired locally. And, while her techniques date back to ancient traditions, the flavors are distinctly modern. Brimming with gorgeous landscape photography from across the Australian continent, this stylish yet down-to-earth cookbook encourages families to embrace the outdoors, teaches young chefs valuable techniques and life skills, and proves once again that everything tastes better cooked over an open flame.
This evocative cookbook invites kids of all ages to the table for mouthwatering innovative outdoor fare that is hard to resist.
