My family never hunted mushrooms when I grew up. But after an epic mushrooming trip on Cape Ann yesterday, they may well become mycophiles in a hurry.
Some days you remember forever. Last week I spent a couple days with a boatful of new friends, 40 miles offshore in search of tuna. We found them. Oh yes, people, we found them…
I spent Labor Day weekend in perhaps the best place in America to hunt doves: South Texas. I’ve never seen dove hunting like it, but I hope to see it again next year. Absolutely epic. To celebrate the hunt, I created a perfect grilling sauce to go with these birds.
Grilling a whole piece of venison backstrap, basting all the while with your favorite BBQ sauce, may not be high-end cooking, but it sure is good…
Chicken or veal piccata, simple cutlets of meat served with a zingy lemon-butter-caper sauce, is a dish that speaks to my childhood — memories that all came flooding back when I made it again recently.
I’ve been making my own hot sauces for years, but none have been as good as this sauce I made with wild chiltepin chiles from southern Arizona.
I love Fuchsia Dunlop’s Chinese cookbooks, in no small part because she includes game recipes in them. This is my version of Sichuan Rabbit, which I made with a cottontail Holly brought home.
It’s summertime, and the fishing is easy. After an epic shark fishing trip in San Francisco Bay, I decided to celebrate summer with a classic Calabrian dish that uses lots of fresh tomatoes.
