"D'Artagnan is America's foremost supplier of game meats and foie gras. In this sumptuous book, owners Ariane Daguin and George Faison team up with veteran food writer Joanna Pruess to adapt outstanding game recipes for the home cook. The result is a collection of nearly 200 game classics and original creations to be enjoyed year-round, ranging from simple roasted birds to elaborate foie gras-enhanced dishes. For fifteen years D'Artagnan has been supplying top chefs with quality game. Now that these products are available in local supermarkets and specialty food shops, home cooks can prepare a wide variety of dishes like those served in America's finest restaurants for their friends and family. Ariane Daguin, George Faison, and Joanna Pruess have included many of their own recipes as well as those of outstanding chefs and game cooks from around the country. Game meats and game birds - including everything from venison, ostrich, buffalo, and rabbit (all lower in fat and healthier than chicken) to duck, goose, wild turkey, and exotic game birds - are thoroughly covered, as are foie gras, sausages, and charcuterie. The recipes are arranged in order of increasing complexity within chapters. Start with Crispy Pan-Fried Duck and work up to more elaborate preparations. Ostrich Fajitas or Venison Chili with Apples will enliven your daily repertoire. And dishes as celebratory as Partridge, Pear, and Wild Mushroom Strudel; Roasted Gascon Quail with Grapes, Foie Gras, and Armagnac; and Winter Pheasant Pbti are perfect for special occasions. This is, above all, deeply flavorful food. Something as uncomplicated to prepare as Jerk Buffalo Ribeye or Wild Game Sausages on Basil-Flecked Polenta willdazzle the palates of both sophisticated game fanciers and those who have just begun to savor the gustatory glories of game.
