The books go into much more detail than the app does and are great reads, especially if you’re interested in nutrition. Tanya has done a great job, both in the app and the books, with meals made with natural, real foods and ingredients. No harmful preservatives, no fillers or artificial colors, just natural good eats. Read more...

Must have book ★★★★★

I love Tanya’s books – simple, super-easy to understand, with plenty of tasty recipes for everyone, starting from amateur and up to cooking expert. Must have for everyone who spends time outdoor. Short trail walker, hardcore 6 month hiker – you will find this book useful. Buy and enjoy!

Not your typical "Ramen" and "Tuna" recipe book  ★★★
by MidgetButterfly - Aug 25, 2014

The format of the book is well organized and easy to follow. I particularly like that they included not only the typical nutritional information for each recipe, but also information concerning the weight of each meal by serving and the utensils required to prepare it.

The high-level synopses of my review is that I think this would be a nice recipe book for people who are not looking for the typical “top ramen” and “tuna” trail meals and intend to “car hike” or have the means to carry larger weight packs (equine or mule packing).

A large percentage of the recipes require more than your typical backpackers cooking utensils (frying pan, outback oven, spatula…) and fresh foods (ghee, vegetables, bacon, lamb…). While these would be very nice and tasty on the trail, they would also be more limiting to a long distance or thru-hiker that is uber-conscious of the weight of their pack. While the need for some of these specific cooking items and fresh foods makes it unlikely that I’d prepare these recipes while backpacking, several do sound like they would taste very good. The author specifies up front that their intention was not to create dehydrated meals but I’m contemplating trying a couple of the recipes at home to see how well they dehydrate.Many of these recipes are outside of your typical “American” fare (Lohikeitto – Finnish Fish Soup; Couscous w/ lamb, mint & thyme) but there are also a few that are more universally western’ish and sound very good (Shepherd’s Pie). Several of the snack and breakfast recipes are variations of the same thing. While it would have made it harder to include 100 recipes, they probably could have combined several recipes and just listed “alternative ingredients” or “other suggested variations”. That being said, the snack and breakfast recipes all sound very tasty and relatively easy to prepare.

So Simple, Yet The Tastiest Recipe's! ★★★★
by Alex is a god - Aug 19, 2014

"I cooked a Moroccan Spiced Tuna Couscous from the Trail Chef book today. I was amazed that something which took 5 minutes to prepare and not even 10 minutes to cook could taste soooo good! Plenty of variety to spare you from the same old trail foods and enough recipes to make a 3 course meal if you please. Some of the ingredients for a few of the meals were a little hard to find in my local Australian supermarket though. If you are seeking something new and a little adventurous in the outdoors, then Trail Chef is the cook book for you". Read more
