Foiled!: Easy, Tasty Tin Foil Meals
What could be simpler than a meal where you can throw away the pot and plate after the meal? Foiled! is sixty recipes that encourage that. Cooking in foil is still a mainstay of serious campers; easy to do on-site or simple make-ahead, and requiring a minimum of equipment. The recipes include breakfasts, main dishes with various meats, interesting sides, and desserts. The easy how-to instructions have home preparation and camp cooking directions. Each recipe has a full-color picture illustrating how it looks.
Overall, the book is fun and informative. The directions are simple enough for even fledgling cooks, the tips detail ways to vary the recipe in new directions. We have the recipes we have tried, and look forward to some of the more unusual ones, such as sweet and sour chicken, maple bacon rolls, coconut lime halibut, or cheese enchiladas in foil. Even old favorites, like baked potatoes or meatloaf, have some new ideas. The book’s purpose seems to be to enjoy the experimentation and certainly the results. It is most excellent to start someone learning about foil cooking whether in a Dutch oven, conventional oven, campfire coals or charcoal briquettes.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
