It's been over a year since you posted this. So how is the book coming along? Feel free to ask others for help, it won't make you less of a man in doing so.So - where am I? I have been working with a variety of people on this and I am basically there (80%) - all of the recipes are done, the histories associated with them are mostly done and I have tested the majority of them to see if they work; but it needs proof reading, refining, proof reading and refining again.
[Sob Story] - we all lead busy lives and I simply have not put the time in to complete these next steps. I am happy to collaborate with anyone who wants to work with me on this, possibly start taking more of a leading role if you have time on your hands. Just send a PM and we can discuss. [Sob Story/]
Operation Crown Thai Chapter Fifty ways to Wok your Dog!!Asmallbrownduck - Wash your mouth out!!!
As to the book, I have been thinking about it whilst walking Mutt Mysteronand my thoughts about this sees a few chapters that are obvious:
"The Field Kitchen" - Classic Army Recipes, that the rest of the world don't eat and we see every day: Egg Banjos, Marmite Potatoes, Range Stew, etc.
"The Rat Pack" - How to improve 24hour Ration Packs. Possibly try and get a celebrity challenge.
"The Officers' Mess" - The fancy recipes.
"The Cookhouse" - Users variations on Basic and classic Recipes.
"The Hardest Course in the Army" - handy tips on how to improve your cooking techniques.
Dent tin.Off hiking in April - just discovered a supply of Bacon Grill - any recipes would be appreciated.
Receips from military cooks passed to a central invigilator, with input from civilian cooks re allergens etc ident. - is a good idea.
The potential is unending for say ultramarathon running - Breacon Becon test etc. Could aid Ta Sf units with diet to aid pass etc!
Best opening it up to all, as the global value may provide an on line index that a military charity may attain big money for access, without copyright design right issues
