“Dove Nuggets”

My favorite part about the opening of hunting season is that I get to begin experimenting with new wild game recipes. But sometimes the best ideas and inspiration come at unexpected moments. While in Arkansas on a recent dove hunting weekend, my friend Jake Michael was in the kitchen chopping up some garlic and cleaning some dove breasts. When I asked him what he was making he said matter of […]

“How to Clean & Cook Soft Shell Crabs”

Soft shell crabs are in season! “Soft shell” is just the term used when regular crabs have recently molted their outer shell. Blue crabs for example, are most common. Ideally you buy them when they’re still alive and bring them home for a feast. They are in season May through September, but can be found frozen the rest of the year typically. Oh, and did I mention they’re delicious? And […]

“Pear Frangipane Tart”

I first learned about Farmer Al and Frog Hollow Farm while working on my book Food Heroes. I was told by a legendary explorer of good taste that hands down the best fruit in the country came from there. My friend had in fact done years of research on this and went on to introduce me to Farmer Al so I could see for myself. I drove 75 miles outside […]

“Elderflower Fritters”

I love eating wild foods which you can probably tell by now. Also, fried dough is delicious. So is amaretto. I had read about elderflower fritters in the process of making elderflower syrup and I just had to know more. Edible earthy tasting flowers, amaretto flavored batter, powdered sugar… let’s go! It begins with flour, lemon zest, 2 eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, almond milk, amaretto, and a whole bunch of elderflowers. […]

“Homemade Spaetzle”

I just love spaetzle. It’s so comforting and German. It’s pasta with a twist, with some crunch, with some extra butter, and some herbs when you feel like it. It’s also only 4 ingredient cooking. Or 5 if you want to add a little flair like I did with the mustard powder. Once you mix up the ingredients, you don’t even need a spaetzle maker. You can do it with […]

“Wild Turkey Swedish Meatballs”

Raise your hand if you’ve been turkey hunting this season! Or raise your hand if you like turkey! Because this recipe works perfectly with both domestic and wild birds. I know some of you have been telling me your turkey hunting stories via email. It’s a thrilling time, turkey hunting season is, it’s so uncertain and adrenaline pumping. And when you put all of that work into your dinner you […]

“Buttermilk Fried Rabbit”

I know it is a bit early, but I bet some of you are already wondering what to make for Easter. Are you feeling a little provocative? A tad tongue-in-cheek? Then this is what I recommend. It was part of my Arkansas cooking extravaganza a few weeks ago and I thought it was high time to share. Young rabbits are best fried, because they are so tender. The best way […]

“Fried Venison Cutlets & Campfire Eating”

There something about campfire eating. Maybe it’s the coziness or the color. Maybe it’s the flavor the wood and smoke impart on the food. I just took a trip to Arkansas and we did quite a lot of campfire eating. The very first thing I ate when I arrived were those things in the shovel. Can you see what they are? Peanuts. Warmed, salty, roasted peanuts. I have not had […]

“Braised Pheasant Legs with Cabbage and Grapes”

Standing in the fields at Joshua Creek was a special kind of experience. There is a mystical quality in the rooster pheasant as he shoots into the air like a feathered arrow, in all his green and red and purple, and speckled brown-black. The long spike of his tail feathers taper for aerodynamic flight and he leans to his side and paints the wind. You hesitate when you see the […]
