If you are going to buy a book about backpack dehydrating this is the one. I have read several others and beat my brains out trying to get spagetti sauce to powder, etc. They are all wrong, and she is right. Don't try to dehydrate the ingredients separately, cook the whole meal and then dehydrate the whole thing together. It seems too good to be true, but it really works, and it works both easier and better. Make it your own way (within a few simple limits), and it really is better, cheaper, and easier than buying the commercial deydrated foods. I might have thought of it myself, if all of the other books weren't so misleading!

The marketing for this book is somewhat deceptive. After reading the description, and even scanning the recipe list, I had no idea that this was primarily a vegetarian cookbook. I was very surprised upon receiving it to find that only a handful of the recipes feature meat in any way.

Now I know most backpackers don't do elaborate breakfasts, so I didn't expect much there besides cold cereals, etc., but even in the chapter on pasta dishes and casseroles, there was little for the omnivore. To give you some specifics, of the 50-odd recipes in the chapter, just over 60% are vegetarian, of which nearly a third are vegan. On top of that, of the recipes that do include meat, 80% are for seafood. Ugh. I don't expect every recipe to be to my taste, but throw me a bone, for goodness sake. At the very least, let me know up front what it is I'm going to be getting. The story's the same in the chapter on soups and stews.

Of the dozens of books I've ordered from Amazon over the years, I'm seriously considering returning this one.

And I am not even a backpacker. In fact, I stay as far away from the woods and mountains and trails as I can possibly get. If there is not a Starbucks within shouting distance, I am just lost, city girl that I am.

That said, I totally am a prepper-ish type, and this book is awesome for that. Prepared dehydrated meals that you can purchase come from God knows where and contain God knows what. If you prepare and dehydrate your meals yourself, you have much more control over the ingredients.

I tried a few of the recipes for bars and veggies, and all were just fine. I have stocked some things in the freezer and some in glass jars in the pantry...have been pleased and the kids even ate the stuff, which is the deciding factor for me.

What I unfortunately did NOT get to do, that I REALLY want to do, is try some of the complete meals (soups, stews, etc.), and dehydrate them myself. I do not think I have the right dehydrator for that. I have a home use Nesco type (the round kind) and I think to dehydrate liquid meals I need the pull out tray kind, and I have not yet purchased one. So bummer on that score, because I can't wait to try some, but i need to get a different dehydrator first.

Overall, even if you keep yourself off the trails but still plan and prepare at home for when the apocalypse happens (heh), this is a great reference book.

I guess if you don't want to invest in a dehydrator this book isn't for you (although we bought one for under $60, and it's paid for itself again and again). If you want to eat Lipton noodles, this book isn't for you. However, if you love food, and you love to eat well on the trail(and we DO!), this is the best thing that ever happened to us! We have found that some recipes are a bit bland for our tastes, but that can easily be personalized. For instance, we added about a 1/4 tsp of chipotle pepper powder and some pepper jack cheese to the Southwestern Lasagna, and we were dancing around our cook stove! Totally delicious, and such an easy meal to put together at the end of one of those "can't find the trail head" days. Entire meals dehydrate to very little pack weight. Yaffe's recipes create very generous servings. We also bought Lip Smackin' Backpackin', and will use some of those recipes, but the need to separate dehydrate, and often rehydrate individual ingredients is tedious, and just doesn't result in the same quality of meal as Yaffe's does. Linda Yaffe is a genius!

So, my husband and I planned this big 10 week backpacking/camping road trip across the country. I really didn't want to eat the prepackaged-freeze dried-expensive-not so good tasting meals you can buy at REI or where ever because the trip was going to be so long and I figured we'd get tired of them real fast. And they're full of preservatives and/or salt. I bought this book a little to late and really only had time to make the meals, not try them out. I did taste them as I went along cooking but I never rehydrated one afterwards to taste and see if they were flavorful. I know it's a bad idea to test something in the backcountry but I had time constraints! Turns out, it didn't matter. The first night of backpacking in Teddy Roosevelt I cooked up the (I think it was called) Cowboy Pasta and it was good. It was really really good, as was every single meal after that. I think we tried 15 recipes all together and everyone turned out to be delicious. Whenever we met up with other campers they were jealous of our meals because most, if no all, were eating the same freeze-dried stuff. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
