Book Review: In The Wild by Chef Steve Weston

Recipes from Base Camp to Summit

Steve Weston is a rabid outdoor enthusiast living in Boise, Idaho. During his Army years in Europe and
West Germany, Steve honed his culinary skills, taking his love of cooking from a hoppy to proficiency.
This is a fun cookbook, either while camping or at home. Ingredients are prepared in advance for ease

dinner entrées. A menu based on this cookbook will be varied and exciting without spending hours in

I would recommend this book for both beginning cooks or hikers and advanced members of both fields.
