Upcoming launch events across New Zealand

Upcoming launch events for Outdoor Appetite


We are very pleased to announce the launch evenings for the beautiful cookbook Outdoor Appetite – thanks to the Love of Nepal committee and Bivouac Outdoor.

Outdoor Appetite is a cookbook designed for anyone who loves healthy, wholesome and delicious food. Inside you’ll find stunning photography by Lindsay Keats, and recipes contributed by well-known cooks and personalities, including the family of Sir Edmund Hillary, and actress Joanna Lumley. The recipes, stories and photographs all reflect our love of Nepal, adventure and the outdoors.

The full 100% of the sales price will go towards the Himalayan Trusts work to rebuild earthquake-damaged schools and support education in the mountainous Everest region of Nepal.

Copies of the cookbook will be available to purchase at three launch evenings at Bivouac stores and all purchases on the night will put you in the draw to win two-nights accommodation at the Carlton Penthouse in Christchurch thanks to Christchurch Holiday Homes.

We hope to see you at the launch evenings in our biggest cities throughout October and November! If you can’t join us, you can still order your copy today.
