  1. L.L. Bean cookbook is simply a must have.Someone gave it a rave review in Shooting Sportsman…and I've bought several for gifts over the years. Thanks. Tom Condon

  2. The L.L. Bean Cookbook is one of the first cookbooks I bought, when first married, back in 72. I got it from the Outdoor Life Book Club. I still refer to it for camping and BBQ meals and their camping spice list is indispensable. It's how we stocked our first kitchen.
