Two brilliant camper van cook books that inspire us every time we open them. Written by the BBC Presenter and Author, Martin Dorey, they are stuffed full of cooking tips, tricks and recipes when you are in a small camping space or glamping in a campervan. This is written for the camper van audience but there’s no reason why it can’t be used in a tent or caravan. You can read more about Martin and his books in our interview articles in our Food And Drink section.
This book is packed full of quick and easy recipes for outdoor eating and advice on cooking styles. It also helps you decide what to do when the weather is bad to help make your camping trip a success no matter what the weather brings.
