    One thought on “Best Served Wild: Real Food for Real Adventures”

    1. Best Served Wild sparked my interest immediately because while I love to camp, those "hobo packs" get tired real quick. When I read, "Real Food for Real Adventures", I was sold. Unfortunately, it seems my expectations for what this meant were skewed. I wanted some new, convenient, and clean recipes to use while camping, and although this is essentially what this cookbook offers, it's more of a hipstery, vegetarian, instagram-worthy version. That's not a criticism, it's just a generational thing. [...]

    2. I'm not sure what I expected by way of a Best Served Wild cookbook, but this wasn't it. First, there are very few ingredients which are taken from the wild and a good many of them would only be available if your campsite is in the middle of your garden during times of harvest. These recipes are really for the hiker, who carries his/her supplies with them. Not a single recipe was taken from the trail. No, "at this time of year you can find this on the trail" or "in the North you can forage this t [...]

    3. No campfire or grilling or Dutch oven recipes here! Firstly, let me say how happy I am that there is an anti-Dutch oven screed in this book. Once I went on a camping trip with a guy who brought a Dutch oven and it was a nightmare. He dumped coals everywhere we went. It was a huge ordeal for something that was really just a freakin pot. Anyway, none of that. The book divides recipes into day trips and overnight trips, but really what you need to know is that there are recipes for you to cook at h [...]

    4. Best Served Wild is essentially a cookbook geared towards those who love and are actively participating in outdoors adventures. All of the recipes are vegetarian and geared to keep you full during your adventuring.Pros:The pictures are gorgeous! If they don't motivate you to get outside, then I don't know what will. The recipes are fairly straightforward and easy to follow.Cons:I expected that more of these recipes would be things you could cook WHILE adventuring, but the majority of recipes wer [...]

    5. Things I loved about this book:Vegetarian friendly recipesEasy to find ingredientsSmall essays scattered throughout the book that connected me to the writers and gave useful tipsThings I did not love about this book:Calling something a chocolate hazelnut crepe when it is really just a tortilla with NutellaEnergy bites, granola, trail mix, and granola bars recipes all seemed to have the exact same ingredients but in slightly different proportions. I hope you like oatmeal and dried fruit.The book [...]

    6. Best Served Wild by Brendan Leonard and Anna Brones is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early August.Recipes for snacks, drinks, standard rib-sticking camp fare (i.e. oatmeal, chili), and some fancier items (like couscous and paninis) are presented with idyllic mountain camping photos and not a speck of mud, ash, bug, fish scale, or other debris in sight.

    7. This cookbook is devoted to getting outside and eating meals in the wild. You will have to bring your own ingredients, which most of us do anyway. It is all vegetarian, but no one says you can't add meat to your meal. The pictures are gorgeous and the writing is friendly. There will be some swear words. Heads up, parents. Basically, easy to prepare vegetarian meals to eat while outside.

    8. This review was made possible by NetGalley, who provided a Digital Advanced Release Copy for review (DARC); my review of the material may not wholly reflect the final product upon its publication.I've finished this title but haven't formulated a complete review of the material yet due to the nature of the book. When I do, I'll update this page to reflect my thoughts.

    9. This is a great book for hikers, campers, outdoorsmen, and hunters. The recipes are protein packed and simple to make. Loved the baked apple chips and protein bars. The banana fritters were great too.

    10. Received this in a giveaway and I couldn't be happier. The pictures are so gorgeous and it gives you an alternative to cooking I thought I'd never try but now love the recipes I have tried so far. :)

    11. Fun book for the adventures among us! Lots of great recipes and tales of adventures. I remember one pot dishes, gorp, fruit leather on my adventures! So much fun! Yes, food is part of the reward and the memories! Never cook with pinelol!
