Virtually all of the best soups in this world are somehow interactive — broth and goodies surrounded by an array of condiments you can pick and choose from. Vietnamese pho is a classic case. Why not take that idea, but use cold climate ingredients?
Venison steaks served with a fantastic wild rice pilaf. It’s an unusual pilaf, made when I decided to play a game of bouncing flavors, colors and textures off each other. Want to learn how to do this? Read on.
Winter is a dark time, short days, cold weather. So I thought I’d make a dish that revels in this, something dark and brooding… and delicious. I present to you, Snow in Winter. It’s snow goose, black trumpet mushrooms, and so much more.

I have a thing for pigeons. They are super fun to hunt, and, when you hunt them on rural ranches where the birds eat grain and other wholesome foods, they are fantastic to eat. The British know this, which is why I take my cue from them in this recipe for roast pigeon.
Duck breast. Beer. Wild berries. What’s not to love? This is an original recipe very, very loosely inspired by an Icelandic dish that uses beer and malt (or beer) vinegar as the main component in the sauce. It’s one of the first times I’ve used beer this way, and it won’t be the last.

In the pantheon of meatballs this is one of the best. Going by the unfortunate name “faggots” (or the mystifying “savoury ducks”), these are really just damn good meatballs, delicately spiced and with a bit of liver tossed in.
Caramelized onions make any dish they appear in better. This recipe is no exception: Big venison steaks, onions and seared hen-of-the-woods mushrooms are autumn on a plate.

Pairing venison with fruit is an age-old thing, and blueberry or huckleberries are a particularly good match. This recipe is an Icelandic version that is not sweet at all. The blueberries are balanced with mushrooms and wine to make a really classy yet easy dish.
