Anyone who knows cookbook author Linda Ly, knows that she is an expert on outdoor cooking. The National Parks Cookbook: The Best Recipes from (and Inspired by) America’s National Parks is a little different from her other cookbooks, but just as good. The recipes aren’t necessarily cooked outside; rather they use ingredients such as wild game, to make dishes that one would think would be served at restaurants in the national parks. All of the parks are included, and the recipes are mouthwatering. There are dozens of good recipes that almost everyone will find very appealing.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner with a list of ingredients followed by succinct instructions that are easy-to-follow and can be prepared by both beginning and advanced cooks. Many of the recipes will appeal to children and families, and even kids will love perusing the recipes because there are some beautiful photographs of the national parks, as well as most of the dishes. The recipes include side dishes, soups, snacks, main dishes, and desserts, and are organized according to the national park they represent. Each recipe includes notes preceding the recipes with interesting vignettes, information on the national park, and hints to make the recipe easier to prepare.

All told, this is another Linda Ly cookbook that is well-written and presents great recipes. Anyone who loves good food, especially good food that they are introduced to in a national park, will want to pick up this excellent cookbook.
