The enchantment of Finnish nature. Feel the northern fell winds against the cheeks, hear the symphony of birds arising from a springtime grove, smell the tangy scent of a Lappish marshland. Picture yourself tucking into cep risotto in the wilderness, as the sun is about to dip below the horizon. Food in the Woods serves up 60 tasty, nourishing vegetarian recipes for any season, without forgetting about desserts and snacks. Treats range from quick and easy sandwiches and campfire lunches to dehydrating your own meals for longer hikes. Try the kimchi hotdogs or Indian campfire potatoes, or sample vegetable paella, lentil ragu or Mexican black bean mole!
The book will guide you into cooking in the great outdoors, equipment you will need and what to consider in different seasons. The recipes and information sections are suitable for beginners and expert hikers alike, the photography and personal stories offering plenty of inspiration for anyone.
