Why did you make a cookbook for climbers?
Because I like to cook and I like to climb.
who are you?
My name is Lotte Meijer, I am a design researcher by day, a gym climber by night, and a rock climber on weekends and vacations. Currently based in Amsterdam, I lived in the US for a couple of years, which explains references to Yosemite and trad climbing.
but why climbers? what about OTHER people? isn't your audience just tiny with just climbers or boulderers?
Yes that is true. But since I'm not going to be rich and famous by making this, I might as well do exactly what. And now I can add climbing anecdotes, draw a nut tools, and include pictures of famous rock faces if I want.
why illustrations and not photographs?
Because I think it's significantly more fun to draw zucchini or cinnamon rolls than to photograph my food.
Cups or grams? Celcius or Fahrenheit?
Both! All recipes have both Metric and US measurements.
And for the Dutch it has translations for non-common words such as 'oats'.
what do I get?
The Joy of Cooking for Climbers is printed on high quality laminated card stock which can take a bit of rain or dew. It includes
