"I'm a passionate traveler and cookbook collector and Lisa has nailed it: this is one of the best cookbooks I've seen in ages--not just for overlanders and especially adventure riders--but for anyone who loves food and travel. The thoughtfully chosen and carefully tested recipes are introduced by short vignettes of the region or trip-event that inspired them, making you want to jump on a bike immediately and head to far-off places. Add to the stories and recipes the gorgeous images and beautiful layout and you have the perfect recipe for a really top-notch reader- and diner-experience. I suspect this book will soon become one of the "must haves" for any overlander's library."
--Roseann Hanson, Founder and Owner, Overland Expo
"Eating healthily on the road is often more of a challenge than the ride itself! Lisa Thomas knows better than anyone how to whip up a great meal in the middle of nowhere, from limited or frankly peculiar ingredients, using just the few utensils that can be carried on a motorcycle. This book will inspire you to avoid the gas station snacks and become an adventure gourmet."

--Amie Bailey, Chef/Owner, Earlybird Cafe, San Francisco, California
"Lisa has a talent of transforming everyday ingredients into mouth-watering dishes. I was an okay cook, however not very imaginative in the kitchen --that was until I met Lisa. She has inspired me by her love of cooking to try different recipes from different cultures and discover a whole new level and enjoyment to cooking. I know this book will do the same for you."
