Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Perkins, a hunter, angler and gourmet cook, believes that most good game suffers from overcooking, and she serves up some remedies: comprehensible recipes for fish and game arranged into seasonal menus, and the recommendation of an internal-temperature Thermicator marketed by Orvis. Menus focusing on octopus in curry sauce, dove pastilla, red jungle fowl with fennel and cardamom seeds, etc., remind the author of hunts and hotels, and she is generous with anecdotes as well as butter and cream. Supermarket provisions are called for, or can be substituted for exotic fowl, in some recipes. An appendix details the hanging, dressing and storing of assorted birds and beasts, and ample side dishes, soups, breads and dessertsmushroom custard, onion tart with olives and anchovies, cream of mustard soup, rye brittle bread, green pepper cookies, cabbage strudelare provided throughout. Illustrations not seen by PW. (October)

    Posted July 12, 2004

    This book was okay, but I agree with most hunters that Rick Black's line of outdoor wild game cookbooks are better! The Wild Turkey Cookbook and bag em and tag em are true outdoor classic's.

    I found that The Orvis Cookbook was pretty much like the same old wild game books out there. I heard about Rick Blacks Venison cookbook and now I have his whole line from Venison, turkey, catfish, Cookin with beer, and Bag em and Tag Em. Iowa's Rick Black not olny puts great recipes in each of his books but keeps you glued to the pages because of the great tips on hunting the wildgame you are about to cook. My wife enjoys his country red neck type of pickin fun of hunters and the wives. I will stick with Rick
