Owning a Dutch oven is almost mandatory camping gear, and most avid campers do much of their cooking in Dutch ovens. Sara Furcini has published an excellent cookbook, Easy Dutch Oven Cooking: Classic and Contemporary Recipes in 5 Steps or Less, which includes dozens of excellent recipes for camping or even at home in the oven.

This cookbook includes important and timely information on choosing a good Dutch oven, the different kinds of Dutch ovens, care of the different Dutch ovens, and which types are best for your purposes.

The recipes are varied, and gathered from everywhere; the first recipe in my queue is Pan-Fried Pork Bo Ssam (Korean lettuce wraps), and there is a fabulous recipe for Hatch Chile Nacho Cheese Sauce which is easy and good. Tonight’s dessert is a Buttermilk Cherry Clafoutis, which is easily put together and made of ingredients that are most likely in the fridge and on the pantry shelves. Most of the recipes included have minimal ingredients, are easily put together, and are appealing to cooks from beginners to experienced. There are good introductory notes above each recipe, and the actual recipes are easy to follow. Although there are a few nice photographs (one heading each chapter), the only thing that would improve this cookbook would be to have more; in fact, most cooks agree that photographs are an integral aspect of a good cookbook. That is the only drawback to this book, and it is certainly not something that should prevent anyone from purchasing this book.

This is one cookbook that will make cooking at a campsite even more fun and is recommended.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
