RAY MEARS BOOK COVER & RECIPES

Hugh shot bush craft expert Ray Mears new book cover for Bloomsbury Publishing. Wilderness Chef will be available to buy on Amazon in the spring

On very wet day, deep in Ashdown Forest Ray started a fire, gutted and boned a whole wild salmon with his bare hands.

Ray is a lovely man, a black belt 7 dan judo artist who trained with Terence Donovan in the Paddington gym. They became good friends with huge mutual respect of each others craft. Terry loved military precision so would have loved Ray’s skills.

Getting the fire going in the rain.  A fresh wild salmon cooked over birch wood tastes fantastic, especially when you have been standing in the rain for a few hours.
