A Motorcycle, a Cookbook, and a Dream: Meet Amanda Zito, the Moto-Chef

Picture this: you’re cruising down a scenic highway, the thrill of the ride fueling your appetite.

But as the sun sets, you know the usual awaits – boring camp food or a greasy roadside burger.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to savor a delicious, homemade meal under the stars instead?

Meet Amanda Zito, the motorcycle adventurer who turned her dream into reality. Her new cookbook, The Motorcycle Camp Cookbook, is your ticket to gourmet meals on the go.

Are you a rider who craves more than canned soup and freeze-dried meals on your journeys? Amanda Zito, author of The Motorcycle Camp Cookbook, knows exactly how you feel. After a decade of motorcycle camping, she’d had enough of lackluster camp meals and decided it was time for an upgrade.

Frustrated by the limited options available, Amanda embarked on a culinary adventure in 2016. This wasn’t just about creating recipes; she wanted to perfect the art of motorcycle camp cooking. Years of experimenting led to The Motorcycle Camp Cookbook – your guide to turning those roadside stops into gourmet experiences.

Now, let’s unpack the story behind this mastermind, Amanda Zito.

The Road to “Moto Meals”

With a motorcycle as her constant companion since 2011, Amanda embarked on long camping journeys that fueled her soul but frustrated her taste buds. In 2016, a desire to connect with her Montana roots led to extended trips where canned soup became an unwelcome staple. “I realized I was sick of the same old thing,” Amanda admits, “and set out to bring good, real food to my campsite.”

What started as a personal craving evolved into a full-fledged project. In 2020, as she neared the impressive milestone of visiting every continental US state by motorcycle, Amanda decided it was time to share the camp cooking knowledge she’d gained.
