    Comments about Australian Camp Oven Cooking:

    Who said you need to go camping to use your camp ovens!

    I use our new fire pit to do my camp oven cooking now.

    Would have been great to get a few more recipes, however, the recipes in the book are good building blocks. All it takes is a little imagination.

                Thanks Jo. Heard you on our local Geraldton radio. Brought back fabulous memories of camp cooking in the North West - some good and some disasters. Cannon ball comes to mind with first damper attempts. (Peeking is necessary). Looking forward to getting your book in the mail and heading back out there to sit around the camp fire and try your delicious recipes.
