From The Author
|"The recipes in this book are for your journeys out in the boonies where fresh produce is scarce to non-existent. You maybe cooking high up in the Altiplano, or in the desert at 122°, or you’ve just been struggling through sodden tundra fighting elephant sized mosquito's. Maybe you are just too plain broke and tired to engage your imagination and work out what the hell to do with that tin of tuna and other basic items that you have with you. Whatever the reason, thanks for purchaing a copy of Dirty Dining, I hope you enjoy using it as much as I did writing it. All the best and enjoy your meal." Lisa Thomas|
|While waiting for the first of many of Lisa’s meals I remember smelling the first waft of spicy aromas emitting from an adjacent room. All I could think about was tasting the first mouthfuls of this incredible smelling meal. As I entered the room where Lisa was cooking I couldn’t believe what she was preparing, solely from two small camp pots. The end result was remarkable”.
|Lisa has a talent of taking everyday ingredients and transforming them into a 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.”

|Lisa’s ability to think outside the pannier when it comes to sourcing and making great food on the road will be a tremendous skill for you, whether you are in your own backyard or half-way to nowhere”.

|Cooking on a stove, with few ingredients, after a day’s riding through God knows what conditions is not an easy job. Still, eating at “Lisa’s” is a five star experience. I don’t know how she does it, but I was left with the impression that she can cook out of nothing. Surely, being so many years on the road is her best ingredient. There’s no other person I could think of that I would ask advice from when it comes to cooking while traveling. Ever since Lisa mentioned the idea of writing a book on her travel cooking experience, I reserved some room in my bike’s tank bag”.
