About Bush Cooking

Whether your outdoor cooking preferences traditional fire or Dutch oven or using modern techniques like gas stoves or flat-top grills Bush cooking has you covered.

The Bush Cooking recipe database is the brainchild of Saffron Hodgson. With an extensive outdoor cooking background starting as a child in Girl Guides and fine-tuned while competing in multiple World Championships including Dutch oven and barbecue, she has a wealth of experience to share.

More importantly, she saw the wealth of knowledge and the vast number of recipes that others had in the outdoor cooking world but didn’t have a platform to get the exposure they deserved. She strived to build Bush Cooking as we know it today.
