From the host of the television series and podcast MeatEater, the long-awaited definitive guide to cooking wild game, including fish and fowl, featuring more than 100 new recipes
“[A] must-read cookbook for those seeking a taste of the wild.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
When Steven Rinella hears from fans of his MeatEater show and podcast, it’s often requests for more recipes. One of the most respected and beloved hunters in America, Rinella is also an accomplished wild game cook, and he offers recipes here that range from his takes on favorite staples to more surprising and exotic meals. In this comprehensive volume, he gives step-by-step instructions on how to break down virtually every variety of North American fish and game in a way that is best for cooking, offers advice on which types of fish or game—and which cuts in particular—work best for various preparations, provides recipes and cooking tips from other renowned hunters and chefs, and includes instructions for making basic stocks, sauces, marinades, pickles, and rubs that can work with a variety of wild game preparations. Readers will be delighted by Rinella’s personal stories, both of cooking and hunting, as well as his insights into turning the wild game he harvests into food.
The MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook will be a welcome companion to Steven Rinella’s popular handbooks, the two volumes of The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game. More than a collection of mouthwatering recipes, this cookbook is an inspiring tribute to living the wild game lifestyle, as we share Rinella’s hands-on relationship with the most elemental aspects of existence. Whether you’re cooking outdoors or in the kitchen, at the campfire or on the grill, this cookbook will be an indispensable guide for both novices and expert chefs.
