“Foodie blogger Pellegrini has crafted a memoir rich both in her hunting experiences and ruminations on what it means to kill what you eat. Without romanticizing, she digs deep into a level of Americana that few have captured on the page.”
"Girl Hunter reads a bit as though Eudora Welty wrote a cookbook." - Bitch Magazine
"With a poet’s eye toward a conscious dinner, Pellegrini takes her readers on a search, not just for wild game but for what she calls a ‘primal part’ of one’s being. I couldn’t stop reading as Pellegrini dug into this foray with gusto and blood, which gives her book an occasional Lord of the Flies feel that’s usually abutted by thoughts so beautiful that you want to weep." - GO Magazine
“Girl Hunter is an evocative account of Pellegrini’s gun-to-table experiences…It’s an unlikely pairing of Nigella Lawson’s culinary skills and Hemingway’s grit.” - Macleans
"Ms. Pellegrini takes the conversation on sourcing our food beyond the farmers market, beyond the local-pastured, organic meat of even the most specialized butcher's shop. She's gone into the fields for herself and echoes José Ortega y Gasset's philosophical defense of hunting—that there is something worthwhile in the wild, something we need, and that our modern lives don't scratch the itch, they only disguise it." - Wall Street Journal
“[Pellegrini’s] book has a Carrie Bradshaw meets Annie Oakley vibe…She’s an exotic meats tourist.”
- New York Times
A few times a year I organize "Adventure Getaways," a long weekend of good times, guns, and butter. If you'd like to host one at your facility send us a note at: firstname.lastname@example.org
