Help Support This New Outdoor Camp Cookbook: Bike. Camp. Cook

Story and Photos By Tara Alan

A few years ago, my husband and I embarked on a two year journey across Europe and Asia. We spent most of the adventure on a pair of touring bicycles, with everything we owned packed in our panniers.


After returning, I set about writing a cookbook for other two-wheeled wanderersBike. Camp. Cook. is the result of my labor. Despite its obvious focus on cycling, the book is a beautiful, informative, food-centric journey for anyone to enjoy.


In the cookbook,  I show you the tools and techniques you’ll need for cooking on the road. Then, I provide a delicious collection of gourmet recipes that you’ll love making at camp. 


Think browned butter crepes, spicy breakfast burritos, and quick, easy granola.


Or, whip up some potato leek soup, chili con carne, Thai peanut noodles, and a tomato mozzarella calzone!


For dessert, why not try chocolate fudge oat cookies or caramelized bananas?


Believe it or not, you can make all of this and much more on an MSR Whisperlite stove!
