The NOLS Cookery, edited by NOLS Rocky Mountain Rations Manager Claudia Pearson, won the “Classic” category of the 2018 National Outdoor Book Awards. Now in its seventh edition, the Cookery is chock-full of iconic NOLS dishes like backcountry pizza and cinnamon rolls—as well as tips on nutrition and backcountry cooking techniques.
“The ‘NOLS’ in NOLS Cookery stands for National Outdoor Leadership School, a non-profit organization that has been sending groups into wilderness areas for 50 years. During that time, they’ve learned a thing or two about outdoor recipes. Now in its seventh edition, this is the classic guide to backcountry cooking. Introductory chapters cover planning, nutrition, packaging, equipment, and environmental considerations. Included also, are helpful hints on the use of lightweight backpacking stoves and techniques of cooking over fires. The bulk of the book, of course, is filled with nutritious and tasty recipes, guaranteed to have been well tested over the years.”
