Description: Mountaineers Books Chow Baby!

The Traveler's Guide to Cheap, Healthy Cooking On a 26-month backpacking journey that took him through Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Germany, Mike Hedley had an epiphany: he was spending too much of his "adventure" money on food. Surely there was a cheaper-and healthier-alternative to the "two-minute" noodles, canned pastas, and other convenience foods he saw fellow travelers resort to. Hedley, a chef, began to develop simple, healthy, inexpensive recipes that even the most inexperienced cook can create on the road. Ingredient lists are short, and no exotic or hard-to-procure items are required. These recipes are designed for the most basic equipment travelers will likely have access to. For example, if you lack measuring spoons, just turn to the conversion chart in the front of the book and you'll find the equivalents given in pinches, dashes, and handfuls. Recipes such as Darwin Salad, Vegetable Omelet, Barbeque Steak Sandwich, Tuna Burger, Easiest Chili, Smashed Potatoes, and Banana Rice Pudding please kids as well as adult travelers. To keep your palette interested, most recipes offer a few simple variations. For easy selection, recipes in each section are arranged in order of cost and effort involved, from cheapest and easiest to more elaborate and expensive. Mike Hedley is a "Red Seal" certified Canadian chef. He lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
