Brilliant! Exceptionally for those 'root' vegetables like potatoes, turnip, carrot and beetroot. Chop into akin size pieces, brush lightly with olive oil and put in a hot oven to roast. Size of the pieces will ascertain the cooking time but count on at least 40 minutes. Exterior is chewy, classified is moist and fluffy. Dress with sour cream and chives. Yum!

Barbeque

Does whatever thing scream summer like the word barbeque? Love a barbeque. This is primarily open flame cooking, so could apply to a campfire as well. Cooking beyond just changes the lot about food.
