Cook Out by Harrison Ward – aka Fell Foodie – is the ultimate outdoor adventure cookbook. Harrison presents over 80 of his easy-to-prepare gourmet recipes that will keep you fuelled all day long. This is al fresco cooking you can really enjoy, whether you’re out on a day walk, wild camping or simply relaxing in the campsite.

Cook Out is split into easy-to-follow sections and illustrated throughout with stunning photography by Kenny Block. For breakfast why not try American-style pancakes or Tiroler Gröstl, a delicious Austrian breakfast hash, followed by a posh fish finger sandwich for lunch? For dinner, there are suggestions for one-pot meals including Tuscan bean stew and pork belly ramen, or go all out with Harrison’s ‘summit specials’, like a delicious chickpea, spinach and coconut curry, or sausage and fennel tagliatelle. Puddings are also covered, with Harrison’s personal takes on classics like rhubarb crumble and apple fritters, as well as a complete range of adventure snack recipes. There’s also campstove and equipment advice, and tips and tricks throughout from Harrison’s years of outdoor cooking experience.

Cook Out – packed with big flavours for your big adventures.

Born and raised on the edge of the English Lake District, Harrison Ward – aka Fell Foodie – has turned the mountainous landscape of his Cumbrian home into his open-air kitchen. After discovering a passion for hillwalking following a drastic life change, it wasn’t long before he found a way to merge his lifelong passion for cooking with this new love of being out in the hills. A self-taught cook, these days Harrison can often be found creating delicious, restaurant-style meals with minimal equipment high up in the fells of the Lake District. He is also an inspirational speaker, sharing his battles with mental illness and alcoholism, as well as his love of outdoor cooking. He has featured on the BBC’s Mary Berry – Love to Cook and Channel 5’s Winter on the Farm, in national press including Men’s Fitness and Metro, and regularly gives talks to organisations and at events, including CarFest and Kendal Mountain Festival. And, yes, he’s named after Harrison Ford. Cook Out is his first book. @fellfoodie
