VIV & RON MOON have spent much of their lives exploring and writing about Australia’s wild and remote areas. In their travels they combine many interests such as 4wd touring, camping, canoeing, photography and camp fire cooking. Since 2007 they have spent over 8 years Overlanding around the world. Their adventures both within Australia and overseas continue today.
Viv commenced writing her Camp Fire Cooking column in 4x4 Australia magazine well over 35 years ago, and her column appeared in the magazine for 30 years and was one of the magazine's most popular features.
Over the last 35 years or more Viv has been called upon to cater and cook on a number of large 4WD expeditions and for TV documentary shoots in remote areas. Planning and preparation were essential, with no supermarket or roadhouse nearby to replenish supplies, and many skills, not only cooking, were honed during those trips. Her meals and cooking prowess are highly regarded by many far and wide.
Viv put all that expertise and knowledge into two cookbooks - Viv Moon's OUTDOOR Cookbook and TRAVELLERS' Cookbook. Both cookbooks have been hugely popular with many editions. Now it's time to combine both of these amazing cookbooks, along with many more recipes, so that all the fabulous recipes, hints and ideas are combined into one extraordinary 533 page cookbook.
Viv Moon's OUTDOOR & TRAVELLERS' Cookbook is written specifically to help you get the most out of cooking during your travels, whether you are 4WD touring, camping, caravanning or simply holidaying; or even at home.
The recipes throughout the book are easy, simple and delicious, using ingredients that are readily available wherever you may be travelling and have been carefully selected and adapted to suit cooking in a wide range of circumstances.
