A Chef's Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and FishBook - 2012
"Embracing the principles of the local sustainable food movement, a growing number of people are returning to hunting and preparing fish and game for their home tables. Afield: A Chef 's Guide to Cooking and Preparing Wild Game and Fish is at once a manifesto for this movement and a practical manual packed with everything the modern home cook and hunter needs to know. Author Jesse Griffiths, an acclaimed chef, butcher, and hunting teacher, combines traditional methods of field dressing, butchering, and preparing fish and game with eighty-five rustic mouthwatering recipes, suitable for the novice and experienced cook alike. Griffiths' commitment to locally sourced ingredients and nose-to-tail cooking makes him the perfect guide for this culinary journey back to the land. From catfish to crab, duck to dove, and deer to wild hog, Griffiths teaches us how to scale, clean, skin, stuff, fillet, grill, braise, and fry a myriad of wild seafood, poultry, and game. Fellow hunting enthusiast and food photographer Jody Horton takes us into the field and the kitchen with Griffiths, following his every step, from the thrill of the hunt to the pleasure of the feast. Packed with vivid stories and images, Afield transports us into America's great outdoors and celebrates its prodigious bounty"--Provided by publisher.
