The Complete Wild Game Cookbook

I'm not a big wild game eater but that's not because I don't like it or have access to it. My brother and brother-in-law are huge wild game hunters and often offer me wild game. In the past, I turned it down more often than not...until now.

You see, the reason I've never really got into consuming wild game was because I didn't know how to prepare it. Thanks to "The Complete Wild Game Cookbook" I've now got 165 different recipes to tantalize our taste buds.

Title: The Complete Wild Game Cookbook
Author: Jean-Paul Grappe
Publisher: Robert Rose
ISBN: 978-0-7788-0516-8

This enticing & informative cookbook explains, from forest to table, how to make the most of wild game. Absorbing & engaging, it's not only full of information about game birds & animals but also introduces you to several wild plants that pair especially well with the suggested dishes, and includes recipes for broths, gravies, marinades and glazes.

In addition to the 165 recipes, it features tips on preparing and cooking game, and the details on the different species available throughout North America. You'll also learn how to use the flesh & giblets of game, as well as wine-pairing suggestions, information on the various cuts of meat & general terms used in butchery.

Here is an example of some of the recipes in the cookbook:

* Braised Duck with Olives
* Roasted Duck Magrets with Grape Foie Gras
* Duck Salmis
* Sauteed Goose Gizzards with Wild Mushrooms
* Slow-Cooked Goose Thighs
* Woodcock and Hare Pie
* Asian-Flavored Guinea Fowl Supremes
* Gray Partridge Braised with Cabbage
* Roasted Quail with Cedar Jelly Sauce
* Lark Pie
* Short Ribs Cooked with Baby Yellow Beets
* Wild Boar Head Cheese
* Bison Roast with Milkweed Sauce
* Beer-Braised Bison Neck
* Bison Stew with Kumquats
* Leg of Bear in Beer
* Roasted Squirrel with Sauce Poivrade
* Plus many more recipes!

This wild game cookbook is absolutely jam-packed with mouth-watering recipes! One of the things that really impresses me is the wide variety of recipes within the book. Just about every wild game animal that is legally hunted in North America is represented in this one cookbook! The foodie photography is beautiful to look at too!

If you got a hunter in your family or just anyone who enjoys preparing and eating wild game...this cookbook would make a great gift (the holidays are coming). You can find this cookbook and many other books by checking out Robert Rose online.
