So I have these funny little tomatillos growing in my garden. I never planted them. They just appeared. Well, they’re all ready to go now, so I decided to make what I think is the very best thing to do with tomatillos: Chile verde, only with wild boar instead of pork.
Germans eat a lot of smoked meats, including bacon. But I failed to find “authentic” German bacon recipes, so I made up my own. This bacon turned out so well it made me want to dance around in a dirndl. OK, maybe not. But it is damn good.
If you love buffalo wings made from chicken, all it takes to do this with pheasant wings is a little bath in some nice stock. This, my friends, is wild game football food.
Deviled eggs are one of those foods I have a hard time controlling myself with. I’ve been known to eat a dozen at a sitting, and even though I know I’ll feel ill afterwards, I can’t stop eating them. These deviled eggs, made with smoked salmon, are especially good.
Just because you’ve skinned and breasted your doves does not mean you can’t make beautiful food with them. This is a Spanish-inspired food

I always order salmon at sushi restaurants, but I am no sushi master so at home I stick to easier preparations, like salmon tartare, which, if you’ve never heard of it, is chopped raw salmon. My version has a Northern European flair to it, with dill and a special pumpkinseed oil the Austrians use a lot.
