Emma Frisch, the author of “Feast by Firelight: Simple Recipes for Camping, Cabins and the Great Outdoors,” a new guide to eating well in the woods, has strong professional credentials as the culinary director of Firelight Camps, which offer luxurious safari-style accommodations in the Finger Lakes region of New York.

Those planning a camping trip will find in this guide a detailed equipment list; how-tos for packing a cooler and building and dousing a campfire; and key campsite cooking essentials, like condiments and cooking oil.

Among the recipes are beet salad with dill, lemonade made with scorched lemons, grilled corn with feta and cilantro, marinara pasta bake with capers and tuna (the convenient kind that comes in foil packets), salmon in foil, and grilled stone fruit with bread crumble. Sandwich recipes include a shelf life for how long they’ll last, and Frisch offers three-day menu planners.
