Ashleigh Butler has spent a decade living and travelling in campervans across the United States and Australia with her partner, Jared. With years of experience as a cook and caterer, Ash didn’t hesitate to leave the conveniences of suburban life behind for a unique adventure – but that didn’t mean she was willing to abandon conscious cooking, even if it meant getting clever in unconventional kitchens.
In this first collection of more than 65 recipes created for campervans, caravans, and tiny homes, Ash shows you how to cook delicious, seasonal, and nourishing food, even if your only equipment is a two-burner stove, a small fridge, and an incredible, everchanging view.
Each recipe will delight anyone who wants to prepare fresh, sustainable, and wholesome meals as varied as the locations and friends encountered on the journey—whether prepared on the road or in a tiny home kitchen.
With stunning photography and hand-drawn illustrations to guide you, The Small Kitchen Cook is a must-have for home chefs interested in eating responsible, delicious meals, no matter the size or shape of their kitchen.

If we had this book when we first began vanlife, we’d have still been pennyless travellers, but we’d have eaten darn well. Really love the stuff we can make from scratch. Never knew ricotta was so easy.

I love cook books where the author not only gives the recipes, but also shares their passion for food and cooking. That is what makes ’The Small Kitchen Cook’ so charming and useful. Sharing food is a special joy and Ash Butler nails this.
A very beautifully presented book with some amazing looking recipes to boot – can’t wait to try them out!!

Just received our copy this morning, such a surreal feeling to see our little van in a book, I almost got emotional even though I have nothing to do with the book itself haha. Please pass my congratulations to the whole team, you’ve done such an amazing job and it’s such a a pretty book.

I met Ash at a stopover when she was travelling the US. She cooked us dinner and it was the best meal we’d had in weeks. Cannot wait for this book!
