The Complete Caravan Chef

Caravan_ChefThe Complete Caravan Chef, Eva Stovern, published by Explore Australia, April, 2011 spiral binding, rrp $29.95, ISBN 9781 741 17363 5

Perfectly timed for those heading off on the great Australian road-trip experience, this book subtitled "around Australia in 30 ingredients" has to be the perfect 'see-you-later' gift.

It may use only a small number of ingredients but there are close to 200 recipes from all around the country. It's a very clever concept. Each section shows where the town for which the various recipes are named, and you can imagine sometimes the 'pantry' would be stretched to using local produce too.

So you can eat Longreach zucchini fritters and Wilpena warm beef salad, or Lake Grace chicken patties followed by Albany almond bread. Or, for a bit of fun, you can simply cook whatever is named for the area you are camping in that night!

This is the ultimate user-friendly book:

  • It won't take up much room in the van
  • Its spiral binding allows the book to open flat for easy reading
  • The picture is on the left the (quick and easy) recipe is on the right
  • You only need 30 ingredients (apart from desserts) to cook from this book
  • Recipes call for a minimum of kitchen tools and equipment, minimising storage space
  • There are also directions for using 'thermal pots' a timesaving on-the-road utensil

This is the third book by Eva Stovern. The others are Caravan Chef and Caravan Chef 2. In this book she has combined recipes from the previous two books and added another thirty for good measure.

Eva still travels the country using and adapting these recipes and developing new ones. Look for her van with the Caravan Chef logo on it.

If you see it, "Please come over and say Hi!," she says.
