Ranger Nick's second book is hot off the press.
Do you eat vegetables with your meat? Then you're in for a treat.
Due to numerous requests from non-carnivorous bipeds, this camp oven cook book came to life offering simple and healthy tucker without flesh as a basis of the meal. Great tasting fresh produce has become an important part of good well-being and a simple healthy lifestyle.
Filled with good old fashioned nutrition, the recipes are easy, delicious and "stop the worms from biting". From entrees, main meals and desserts, you will even find gluten free and dairy free meals in there.
For the novice camp oven cook, there are tips on heat source, heat control, curing, caring and storing of your camp oven.
Of course, Ranger Nick has once again added his unique sense of humour in form of bush poetry and has written the book in a colloquial language with a glossary in the back for those unfamiliar with the Australian slang.
True to his style, this is yet another unique and unusual piece of art, which is hard to fit into the average book categories.
It inspires all outdoor enthusiasts, male and female, young and old and everyone in between.

I have downloaded both books and use the recipes as often as I can - I met Ranger Nick at last years Camp Kitchen Cookout at Milmerran- his shows were fantastic and most helpful (and pretty damn funny) so if you ever get the chance to see him go for it - my camp cooking "mantra" now is "+2 -2"
