He may be best known for surviving in some of the world’s most inhospitable places, and passing on his bushcraft skills, but now Ray Mears can add food writer to his list of credentials. He has just published his first ever cookery book Wilderness Chef: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Outdoors, if somewhat reluctantly.

“People had been saying for years that I should do a cookery book but I never ever wanted to write one. But one Christmas my son gave me a blank book and asked me to fill it with recipes that I had collected during my travels over the years. I thought if I’m doing that I might as well put them in a book,” says Mears, whose son Kristian, 20, is currently studying for a PhD in chemistry.

“Bushcraft liberates and empowers,” says Mears. “It re-acquaints man with nature and his roots and provides an escape from the shackles of modern life. Bushcraft is about being practical and resourceful. Rather than teach 10 things, teach one which can be put to use in a wide variety of environments,” he says.

Wilderness Chef: the Ultimate Guide to Cooking outdoors by Ray Mears is published by Bloomsbury Conway, £20. www.raymears.com
