About

FINAL WEEK REWARDS!

WE CAN DO IT! WE'VE GOT TWO NEW INSTANT REWARD RECIPES!

We're determined to get there and to make sure we do, we've got more instant rewards! Some of you have already gotten in on our previous recipe giveaways, and now you have the opportunity to get TWO BRAND NEW RECIPES :) Available to all new backers and existing backers who increase their pledge by any amount! All week we're sending out our Tagine of Butternut Squash, Shallots, Carrots and Prunes recipe along with Skewered Scallops Wrapped in Bacon with Maple Syrup Glaze! Delicious! In fact, I might have to abandon the rest of this update and go make those right now!

Bon Appetit!

And because we love you all SO much, CLICK HERE to download YET NOTHER RECIPE! Planked Salmon with Blood Orange Sauce... drool! This is an example of just two delicious pages in our 224 page book! Why are there so many pages you ask? Because we love cooking and we love you guys! We had many discussions about cutting down on the number of recipes to reduce print costs, but we just couldn't do it. They are all too delicious to lose!

NEW REWARD TIER!

WINE PAIRING GUIDE AND COOKBOOK

For a $55 donation, we are excited to offer this NEW REWARD tier! A wine pairing guide to go with your printed copy of the book! Prepared by an expert, every pairing is tailored specifically for each recipe in the book!

ABOUT THE COOKBOOK

The cookbook is loaded with 140 gourmet recipes which are delicious as well as camper-friendly. The book includes full-color images, useful tips and recommendations, and retro-inspired graphics. As lovers of fresh, well prepared food, we began compiling great recipes and adapting them to cooking over a campfire and camp stove. After much hard work, our compilation became the The Gourmet Girls Go Camping Cookbook.

We did our research and found no camp cookbook available anywhere that was portable, included recipes that were delicious and easy to make, had beautiful photographs, and was also entertaining. Sure, there were plenty of books about 'glamping' and retro trailers, but we found no cookbooks that addressed the gourmet in all of us.

We are so excited to be sharing this project with you! The book is nearly finished, and through this Kickstarter campaign, your backing allows us to print our first run of books. 

No matter the pledge level, you are telling the world that you believe in the future of independent book publishing, and that you are helping to make it happen by backing this Kickstarter project.  Thank you!

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

A HUGE thank you to our team for the promo video! Adam James for his excellent still photography as well as our audio/video recording. Kyle Higgins for editing. Alexey Anisimov for the music track Happy in our video.

Most importantly...

THANK YOU!

We'll do our very best to keep you respectfully updated. Without being too pesky about it.

Risks and challenges

Any project has its risks, but luckily for us, the bulk of the work has already been done: photography, recipes, and design. There are still some tweaks to make (editing of text and photos), but mostly what remains is printing, marketing, and distribution.

There are always possibilities of delays with printing, but we are working with an experienced printer to have these books printed and ready for distribution by mid-June 2016. Once we hand over the design files in early April, we have just an 8-week turnaround to have the cookbooks in hand!
