The Camper Van Cookbook: Life on 4 wheels, Cooking on 2 rings

Martin Dorey and Sarah Randell

Say goodbye to roughing it. And hello to a new kind of freedom.

With over 80 fabulously tasty recipes you can cook on just two rings and a few barbeque feasts and camp fire crackers, this is the dashboard bible for anyone who ever dreamed of hitting the road at the wheel of a classic VW camper.

From finding and cooking your own food to passing muster with the surfing set, The Camper Van Cookbook will show you how to make the most of every single moment on the road.

Reviews of The Camper Van Cookbook: Life on 4 wheels, Cooking on 2 rings

“His charmingly eccentric account of life on the road, one delicious recipe at a time, is set to become a modern outdoor classic… it occurs to me that Martin, who pulses with energy and Boy’s Own enthusiasm, was made for television. Perhaps he could be sponsored by the British Tourist Authority, as he leads viewers down highways and byways to soak up the scenic beauty – while feasting on breakfast frittata with bacon. Many of the recipes would work just as well for a ‘tented’ camping holiday but the vintage wheels lend the whole occasion a certain grooviness.”

You Magazine

“This inspirational handbook tells you how to cope during a weekend spent on four wheels with nothing but a fire and a two ring stove to cook.”

Telegraph Magazine

“This is not just a cookbook, it’s a bible for camping.”

Martin Dorey

Martin Dorey is a writer and surfer. He lives on the North Devon coast with his wife and daughters and Pootle, a 28-year-old Volkswagen camper van.

When he’s not fixing up Pootle for weekends away, mucking about with the kids, catching waves or pretending to work, he goes fishing. He is very, very bad at it. His family understands. No one expects sea bass for tea any more.
