Come to Texas, hunt wild pigs or whitetail deer, and learn butchery skills, sausage-making and how to cure meats with me! We’re doing two great cooking schools this year.
Spring is here in NorCal. Normally I feel bad about it, almost ashamed. After all, so many of you are still locked in winter, and will be for months. But this is my reality. And I embrace it. In this episode I talk about early spring foraging, the end of hunting seasons and embracing transition in your life.
Chocolomo. I just love saying the name. It’s a Mexican stew made with beef or venison, and it is amazing. The flavor is so deep and rich you just want to keep eating it. The secret? Char. There’s a whole lotta blackening going on here, and the result is a revelation.
In this episode of the Hunt Gather Talk podcast, we talk about exotic proteins – meats and fish that are delicious but often overlooked. Muskrats, beavers, snakes, turtles, woodchucks, even some weird fish.
The moment I shot my first javelina, I knew I needed to make cochinita pibil. My instincts were not wrong. This is slow cooked, pulled meat (normally pork) marinated in citrus and achiote (annato) paste. Damn good on tortillas with pickled red onions.
In this week’s podcast, I’m talking mushrooms. Specifically, how to get into mushroom hunting – safely. I talk you through the basics, how to get started, what varieties you will want to look for first, and how not to poison yourself.
Why people hate on javelina I have no idea. They are excellent eating, and the infamous stink gland on their back is very easy to dispense with. Here’s what you need to know about cooking your “skunk pig.”
Welcome to the first episode of the Hunt Gather Talk podcast. Stay tuned for a new episode every week or so, on all sorts of topics covering wild food, interviews with other experts, tips and tricks and techniques, and, in this first episode, reader and listener questions.
