The Petromax outdoor baking book “Draußen Backen” by Carsten Bothe is the winner of the German qualification for the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. The baking book for campfire fans, which was published in 2018 by HEEL, won over the international judges in the category Barbecue. This paves the way to participate in the global competition. The price-giving for the international award will take place in Macau in July 2019. Carsten Bothe offers recipes and know-how for the book “Draußen Backen” – Petromax the right equipment. This productive collaboration brought forth a classic book which smells of adventures and is now one of the best cook books worldwide.


Old knowledge re-discovered

Who knows how cowboys and settlers on their way to the West prepared their dishes at the campfire? Who collected the recipes that were prepared best in cast-iron pans over the ember? Without an author like Carsten Bothe, this centuries-old knowledge would be lost. In the new Petromax outdoor baking book, Bothe has collected all recipes and tips for baking outside that he found during his experiences and research over the years. The result is a book not only with baking recipes, but also an entertaining collection of instructions and stories about baking outside.

Price-giving in Macau

This concept convinced the judges of the renowned Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. The award was created in 1995 by Edouard Cointreau and is said to be the “Oscar” in the cooking world. “We are proud that the enthusiasm for cooking and baking outdoors now brings us such a success,” says Petromax CEO Dr. Pia Christin Taureck, who gave the impetus for the book. Petromax once stood for the legendary high-pressure kerosene lamp. In recent years, Petromax realigned the traditional brand and produced clever designed products for outdoor cooking adventures at a rapid pace. Petromax is a market leader with international reputation.
