It's our pleasure to finally introduce our latest work, Forks in the Road: Recipes from Overlanding the Pan-American Highway. A cookbook that has been 25,000 miles in the making.
In the unfortunate event that we've never had the privilege of cooking you a meal, here are a few recipes from the book that should give you an idea what we're all about. Click to enlarge.
Every recipe in this book was discovered, adapted, cooked, written, revised and meticulously photographed somewhere between Tijuana, Mexico and Ushuaia, Argentina. The first recipes were written mere miles from The Death Road in Bolivia. In the following months they were photographed on the coast of Chile, edited on a cruise ship in Antarctica, formatted in a Uruguayan hotel, and finally submitted for publishing on a beach in Brazil.
Also inside you'll find:
While this book is written with overlanders in mind, home chefs will also find these recipes a worthy addition to their repertoire, especially avid campers and outdoor cooks.
Plus, we've written a chapter dedicated to cooking over fire, with detailed instructions on how to bake, braise, roast, smoke and steam over charcoal, and how to slow-roast an entire lamb or 25-pound rack of beef ribs over an open fire.
All recipes include advice for locating less common ingredients, whether at home or on the road. Substitutions and alternative preparation methods are given, and explanations of local dishes, ingredients and techniques are mentioned for Latin American recipes.
