“Goat Tacos”

Friends!

I’m so excited to share the first of many cooking episodes here on this site. For a long time you’ve seen many posts here with step-by-step photos which take you through the recipes, but we’ve decided to spice things up around here and give some of the how-to’s in a video format for those of you who learn better this way. As always I’d love your feedback and questions in the comments section below. It is a work in progress, and like a fine venison back strap, it will get better with time.

Stay hungry my friends.
