A Word from Getty

I have been camping all my life. Being outdoors and enjoying good food are two of my favourite activities When I’m not hiking, paddling or camping, I work as a Professional Home Economist with training in food and nutrition. I test recipes, teach and write about preserving and enjoying seasonal food. In this book, I get to share my passion and enthusiasm for both! I’m thrilled to share my experience and knowledge with you!
