Some years ago I used to draw campfire cookstrips for Scouting magazine. Presented in the style of Len Deighton’s famous 1960s illustrations from the Observer and the Action Cookbook, my own cookstrips featured campfire recipes submitted by endlessly inventive scout leaders.
Most of them went up on this blog when they were first published and are still buried down there in the archives, but I’ve been asked a couple of times if I could put them all in one place, as both images and PDF downloads. So here are all the ones I could find – scroll to the bottom for the PDFs if you need them.
Some don’t actually require a campfire (one of the most popular was ‘armpit fudge’) and there’s even one rather messy contribution from Baden-Powell himself.
