VENTURA, Calif., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- If your idea of cooking on the road is heating hot dogs and beans in a pot over an open fire or scrambling eggs on the cook top of your RV, you need to get the latest one-of-a-kind cookbook designed exclusively for RVers and campers looking for recipes to enjoy while on the road. Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs, was created for adventurous food enthusiasts.
Woodall Publications Corporation (Woodall's) teamed up with Anne de Ravel, an independent writer, producer and cookbook author specializing in lifestyle, culinary trends and cooking. For this cookbook, de Ravel has assembled a collection of recipes from some of the top chefs in the country adapted to cooking on the road or in a small kitchen.
"It's a perfect match," said Joe Daquino, publisher for Woodall's. "Woodall's specialty is the design of print publications to reach different segments of the RV and camping consumer marketplace. When combined with Anne's culinary skills, experience as a food television producer and national journalist we created this one-of-kind cookbook."
"One of the things we discovered is that many people know very little about cooking or even how to prepare for a meal at home, let alone on the road," said Daquino. "This cookbook is packed with great recipes, cooking and preparation tips. It makes gourmet cooking easy to understand because it has to be broken down into components that travel well. Our editor made it a lot of fun to read whether you travel over the road or stay at home to cook."
The cookbook highlights 22 chefs around the country who offer their own personal recipes from soups, salads, one-pot stews, delicious desserts and breakfasts for the whole family. Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs features recipes you won't find in any other RV or camping cookbook, ranging from contemporary flavors to updated regional classics, reflecting greater diversity in RV cooking without requiring top-notch culinary skills.
Sidebars and tips include short cuts and variations for the recipes, how to prepare and store foods and perishables for an RV trip, and serving suggestions. In addition, anecdotes and personal camping stories from these famous chefs make this cookbook an enjoyable read.
The RV cookbook features some of the best chefs in the country, from TV personality Chef Harry who cruises in his "rock & roll" bus, to Melissa Perello, executive chef at Fifth Floor restaurant (San Francisco). The chefs' unique personalities and style in the kitchen and on the road along with how they cope with limited equipment make the cookbook an entertaining read. Readers peek into the chefs' lives while learning some great tricks of the trade along the way.
A few of the 22 celebrity chefs included are: * Charlie Palmer, (Chef/owner Aureole and CP Steak among others), * Laurent Tourondel (Chef/owner BLT Steak and BLT Fish Restaurants in New York City), * Chef Harry (featured on the Shop at Home Network and creator and star of Chef Harry and Friends syndicated television show), * Zak Pelaccio (chef 5 Ninth and Fatty Crab in New York City), * Jimmy Bannos (chef/owner Heaven on Seven Restaurants in Chicago, IL) and many more!
Whether you are meandering North America's highways full-timing in your RV, or enjoying short vacations and weekend getaways, you'll find Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs engaging and most delicious!
Cooking on the Road with Celebrity Chefs will appear in bookstores in early May. The retail price is $19.95. The RV cookbook can purchased on http://www.woodalls.com/ (http://www.woodalls.com/shop/display.cfm?productID=DWCEL0&categoryID=&de... 0 ).

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
