We decided to throw out the family cookbook—that is not to imply that there were not any good recipes in the family recipe book, it’s simply that it became too tattered and, to some degree, no longer alive. We thought that we might publish a cookbook of our own, filled with our favorite recipes, but also some new ideas from family and friends. After publishing seven editions of the recipe book for family and friends, we decided to move it online and we hope you find it filled with a few pleasing twists and turns.
Yet, there is nothing untried or untrue here. Just simply our favorites from the around the world and right at home! These are kitchen tested favorites. If there is a better recipe, send it to us, as we will remove any thing second class and replace it with the best.
One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted…If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job.
—-Jose Ortega y Gasset, Meditations on Hunting
