About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Apocalypse Chow is a well-organized manual for survival, with step-by-step instructions to assist you in planning for an emergency, whether it be a thunderstorm or blackout that knocks out the power for a day, or an earthquake, hurricane, or blizzard that could put your home out of commission for a week or more. This book is informative and concise - a good read that educates with a sense of humor. Jon Robertson has taken a formidable subject and has actually made it entertaining.
And speaking of entertaining, the "Pantry Cuisine" in this book will have you entertaining the neighbors during that blackout. The meal plans are creative, and the recipes are delicious. I know, because I have already tried several of them, in anticipation of putting together my 5-day Wine Box. (Now, doesn't that make you curious enough to buy this book?) Forget eating those beans out of the can. This book has an assortment of gourmet recipes that can be made in minutes, using a variety of canned goods, pasta, quick-cooking grains, condiments, and an assortment of flavor-makers. And since most are one-pot-meals, clean up is a snap.
This book is a "must-have" for everyone. Wherever you live, you never know when the power will go out, and when it does, you'll be prepared if you've followed the advice in Apocalypse Chow.
We were able to cook on our grill, but it was pretty basic cooking. This book gives 68 recipes for using pantry supplies, cooking on the grill or a camp-stove and what to stock in to keep you through the disaster.

This book is pretty well written, light & funny but most of it covers the stuff you already know. Instead of really being about cooking with no power it offers a 5 day menu and... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Dan & Jen Desrochers
The book is entirely vegetarian. They don't say this on the cover, nor in the description on Amazon. That it isn't even on the cover, to me, seems to go so far as being misleading. Read morePublished 20 months ago by laurali
