Mikaela, I am so impressed. This blew my expectations out of the water.

Who am I and what’s this cookbook?

Hi, I’m Mikaela and thanks for your interest in my backcountry cookbook.

I’ve been camping for ten years now. My first trip was a 2 week canoe trip in Temagami, Ontario when I was 15 years old. My ‘food group’ consisted of me and two other girls and non of us had any cooking experience, let alone backcountry cooking experience. Needless to say, our food was awful.

But since then I’ve guided a dozen canoe trips of varying lengths, the longest being a four week paddle down the Missinaibi River. I regularly get out on my own for canoeing and hiking trips. Now I cook things like Thai Red Curry, Chilli with homemade Garlic Bread, Cinnamon Buns and more.

And I’ve written all my favourite recipes down in this cookbook for you.

I’ve also included a primer on how to plan & prep for for long camping trips. In this book, you’ll learn how to build a nutritious meal plan that matches your paddling route, how dehydrate different types of food, how to deal with dishes and clean up (so bears or racoons don’t steal your food).
