The National Parks Cookbook: The Best Recipes from (and Inspired By) America's National Parks (Great Outdoor Cooking)
Relive your last trip to the parks and enjoy your favorite recipes from Acadia to Zion with this fun cookbook.
Feast on the flavors of America’s national parks with more than 70 delicious recipes inspired by their iconic lodges, landscapes, and chefs—including savory dishes, cocktails, and desserts.
Since the world’s first-ever national park—Yellowstone—was established, national parks have fed millions of hungry visitors in their historic dining rooms and restaurants. From Acadia’s famous puffy popovers to Zion’s loaded Navajo tacos, guests have long enjoyed a range of unique regional cuisines, meals made from foraged foods, and gourmet menus whipped up by celebrated chefs, even in the middle of nowhere.
Who can forget that piping-hot platter of Moose Drool–Braised Bison Short Ribs in Yellowstone, or the massive slab of Mile-High Blackberry Ice Cream Pie in Shenandoah? Maybe you keep dreaming about the Huckleberry Margaritas from Grand Teton (and the spectacular sunset that accompanied them on the deck of Jackson Lake Lodge), or you still order the same boysenberry pie from Yosemite that you remember from your childhood. (Pssst... It’s still made the same way as it was more than 60 years ago!)
Now you can re-create and enjoy these legendary recipes at home with The National Parks Cookbook!
Part cookbook and part escapist lifestyle book filled with stunning travel photography and national park history, The National Parks Cookbook features recipes from popular national park destinations in the west, east, north, and south.
