The Slow Road Cookbook

Kirianna Poole has spent the last five years travelling with her husband and three kids in their vintage Kombi. Life travels slowly in an old campervan, and for Kirianna, that means lots of time to dream up simple, hearty food that's perfect for cooking while camping. This is food for families who crave a slower life, more connection with people, the land, and, just as importantly, themselves.

The Hunter & The Gatherer

A cookbook by sailors filled with 160+ sustainable, healthy recipes for ocean-loving foodies. Written by liveaboard cruisers, with 20+ years of experience living on their catamaran, Wild One, this book is a guide for anyone seeking to live self-sufficiently in harmony with the ocean. Perfect for tiny galleys, long passages, and beach sunsets. Check out one of the recipes here.


Ashleigh Butler has spent a decade living and travelling in campervans across Australia and the US with her partner, Jared. Although she left behind the ideals and conveniences of suburban life, Ash wasn’t prepared to abandon wholesome and conscious cooking, even in their unconventional kitchens.

In her first collection of more than 65 recipes for campervans, caravans and tiny homes, Ash shows it’s simple to cook delicious, seasonal and nourishing food when all you’ve got is a two-burner stove, a small fridge and an incredible, everchanging view.

This is food for adventurers with a mind for sustainability and anyone who wants to eat fresh, wholesome meals as varied as the seasons, locations and friends they meet along their journey.

Published in hardcover format, The Small Kitchen Cook runs to 216 pages, presented with a debossed cover, full colour images and hand-drawn illustrations and lettering throughout.

    I love cook books where the author not only gives the recipes, but also shares their passion for food and cooking. That is what makes ’The Small Kitchen Cook’ so charming and useful. Sharing food is a special joy and Ash Butler nails this.

    I was in the Harry Hartog Woden bookshop this week and there was The Small Kitchen Cook book. There were only 2 left and I bought one of them! The staff said the book is very popular so I hope you are having as much success in other areas of the country.

    Just received our copy this morning, such a surreal feeling to see our little van in a book, I almost got emotional even though I have nothing to do with the book itself haha. Please pass my congratulations to the whole team, you’ve done such an amazing job and it’s such a a pretty book.

    I met Ash at a stopover when she was travelling the US. She cooked us dinner and it was the best meal we’d had in weeks. Cannot wait for this book!
