Indian Spiced Venison Stew

For those of you who witnessed me butcher an axis deer in my last post, I decided to reward the brave with a little something special. My Indian Spiced Venison Stew recipe. Since axis deer come from the tropics of India, I included many Indian spices–such as garam masala–that pair perfectly with the venison. Not to mention, pan-frying all of the ingredients in coconut oil adds a richness and a unique flavor. Although this recipe has a […]

Pumpkin Bourbon Soup

Texas is finally cold, and I’m ready to get cozy with a bowl filled with warm soup. But you know what would be better? A pumpkin full of warm soup. It’s just that much more awesome.

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.

Oryx Fajitas

One of the perks that comes with being a chef who hunts is that I’m sometimes gifted exotic foods. For example, in the past week I was given beet and mint ice cream, a box of olive oil from someone’s farm in Greece, and a bag full of oryx meat that a Texas guy had hunted in a nearby Texas ranch. I was teaching a cooking class and doing a […]

Perfect Steelhead or Salmon

After our Arctic morning on the river, contending with Mother Nature’s bad, bad mood, we had lunch on the shore. This kind of shore lunch requires some acrobatics. It’s also a time to keep things really, really simple. Simple. Keep things simple. Okay? Simple. The first thing you’ll need is a sharp knife. Which I didn’t have. The second thing you’ll need is a flat surface on which to fillet […]

Picasso, a Pumpkin, and Its Toasted Seeds

Do you like my pumpkin? It was designed by a talented artist named T. Kristian Russell. In fact, it looks a lot like one of his recent works, don’t you think? Or this one… It’s the first pumpkin I’ve seen with a legitimate nose. I think it looks like Picasso… a very snazzy pumpkin. Once I pulled out all of the wet orange goo from the insides, I roasted the […]

Sauteed Oyster Mushrooms

Look What I Found In The Woods! I was catering a rehearsal dinner for a wedding last week and on the menu was a platter of sauteed wild mushrooms for the table. Well I was out in the woods and found this, so I promptly returned the packaged mushrooms to the store. These were a hit, especially when I put one of them on a platter as a showpiece and […]
