  •  I love America's Test Kitchen (7+ / 0-)

    and I could imagine getting some of the Cooks Illustrated books.

    I enjoy the Scandinavian cooking show on PBS (has different hosts from Denmark, Sweden and Norway), and they always set up in the field and cook outdoors on a fancy portable stove.

    My favorite episode had a "family treats" focus where the food was meant for kids' enjoyment. They made lamb stew, and gave the 10-year-old children sharp knives to chop up giant hunks of meat on the bone as their "fun job." Meanwhile they executed the 'old hen' on the farm to make stock. The dessert, which all kids love, was pumpkin and yogurt parfait. :-D
