The Field to Table Cookbook: Gardening, Foraging, Fishing, & Hunting Hardcover – March 22, 2016 by Susan L. Ebert (Author), Jesse Griffiths (Foreword) (Welcome Books)
What a phenomenal, insightful book. I love browsing through it, drool over the photos, laugh at the stories (the author has such a sense of humor and poetic way to describe her experiences!). Made several of the recipes and found them easy to follow. I also got a copy of this book to give to a friend who I know loves to cook with different ingredients. Not always the same chicken, pork or beef. And like me, she doesn't fish or hunt but still: there are so many different ingredients available, like duck, rabbit, venison, goose... this book is a MUST to enjoy cooking with game, fish and different fruits and vegetables even more!!!!
The complete guide to growing, procuring, and preparing local and seasonal foods for the home cook. The Field to Table Cookbook brings 175 family-pleasing, nutritious, and accessible recipes to home cooks who want to increase their familiarity with procuring and cooking clean, organic meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables. Susan L. Ebert’s seasonal tips and recipes for game, fish, wild foods, and garden produce translate well to different regions and climes. Ebert—an experienced hunter, angler, forager, and gardener—pairs her straightforward recipes with more than one hundred illustrative photos of procuring food in the field and presenting it on the table, along with tips on dressing, deboning, preparing, drying, curing, and preserving nature’s bounty. Field notes about wild game, fish, foraged foods, and home garden favorites complete the experience. This book is a wonderful resource: as a thorough seasonal guide to cooking with game, foraged food, and organic vegetables (for nonhunters and hunters alike); as a cookbook for hunters; and as a guide for home cooks who prepare fish and game for their family.
