This is an enjoyable book to read, not just for the recipes but also for the tips and the shared experiences that generated the suggestions. Photos of food and the settings in which they were prepared are excellent. Remember the admonition about non-stick pans. I cooked the cheesy garlic pasta, but in upsizing the recipe for eight people meant cooking in a big aluminum pot, which also meant a half hour of scraping the pan bottom, after an overnight soak. Good eats, though.

Not realistic for anyone cycle touring in areas with limited food. No info addressing food safety and animal safety (bears, rodents, etc.). I was hoping for practical, not one entire pannier dedicated to food. Not the recipes if you plan on cycling for more than 3 hours daily.
Great cookbook by touring cyclists for touring cyclists.

It is more than a great cookbook. Tara also gives excellent specific cooking instructions with a backpacking stove and lightweight cooking gear. You do not need to be a talented chief to create some delicious and nutritious meals using common ingredients and simple spices. I love One-Eyed Sailors!
