Editorial Reviews

After the Hunt explores man's hunting history from cave man through American colonization. Travel through time as ancient man learns to create tools, nets and traps for hunting then, cultivates a gluttonous taste for wild game delicacies and grand game banquets that continue for days. From China to Egypt from Greece to Rome, the hunt was a revered sport that prepared men for war. Visit game parks of the noblemen and review the hunting privileges that were reserved for the aristocracy alone. Through Medieval Europe to the Renaissance the hunt was immortalized in paintings, tapestries, china, furniture, symphonies and song. With every page the reader comes to understand that man's love affair with hunting is not just about the kill, but about the pursuit of an ancient, innate treasure. Conquer the wilds of North America with early colonists and travel down the Mississippi River to the "Land of Louis" for a glimpse into Louisiana's magnificent hunting camps. After the Hunt is a compilation of countless historical images, dazzling color and tantalizing food photography that pays proper homage to Louisiana as Sportsman's Paradise and to the hunter of yesterday, today and tomorrow. More than 500 unique game and game fish recipes are included in this 870-page tome. Whether you're cooking wild boar or woodcock, squirrel or squab, teal or tuna, you'll find a unique recipe in this book. Tallyho!

Format: Hardcover
UPDATE: If you're a fan of Folse, you HAVE to try his newest restaurant, "Restaurant R'evolution" in the Royal Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans. WHAT A TREAT! Amazing dish followed by amazing dish--all five courses.
------------------------------------------
I was introduced to this magnificent book by a friend and couldn't wait to get my own copy. It is worth every dime spent.

This is the kind of book/cookbook that you will not part with and will look forward to giving as gifts (please note that this book would give a vegan/vegetarian nightmares as it is very graphic...seriously).

Whether you're a hunter, fisherman, outdoorsman, history buff, homesick cajun or just a cook looking to expand your repertoire, this book has a lot for everyone! It has nice heavy-weight glossy paper, good solid binding, tons of photographs and illustrations, a terrific historical information section and beaucoup great recipes, starting with, of course, the rouxs (multiple roux recipes).

My old cajun MawMaw fixed many a creative and delicious meal using possum, squirrel, coon and other mysterious vittles (the critters and parts of them that regular folks definitely did not eat!) that I genuinely do NOT want to know the identity of. Most of these meals were born of necessity...poor farming people in the depression ate what they could kill. I am convinced that a good cajun cook can make ANYTHING taste fabulous.

Folse has recorded in this book a stunning variety of recipes using all those lesser known delicacies including nutria, beaver, muskrat as well as hunting standards like deer, rabbit and duck. Should this "recession" that we are currently experiencing turn into a long-term depression, this cookbook will be worth it's weight in gold for those trying to stretch scarce food dollars.

A glorious pictorial; educational, beautiful and totally fun! Cookbook collectors, it's a definite. Even if one never prepared a dish (say not!) it is a beautiful object.

Beautiful book with wonderful pictures and great recipes. Great recipes for most Louisiana staples using southern game. Even more importantly, however, is that the book has hundreds of wonderful pictures of the food and of Southern hunters gathering the game that is used in the food. Highly recommended.

I had never actually READ a cookbook before I got my first John Folse cookbook. I received the Encyclopedia of Cajun & Creole Cuisine as a gift and started flipping through it as I do all my cookbooks. The thing that captured my attention the most was that the first group of chapters aren't recipes... they were about the history BEHIND the recipes. I ended up reading it cover to cover. When After the Hunt came out I could not wait to get a copy. This cookbook is in the same format. The first group of chapters are all about the history of hunting in Louisiana and cooking your harvest. That's just the start. The recipes are out of this WORLD! The Green Onion Venison Sausage recipe is beyond compare. The Duck & Sausage Gumbo is a staple at our house as well. Great book!

Bought the book for my brother for Christmas. He's a big hunter/outdoorsman and he loved it! I was worried he would think it was just a cookbook, but it's so much more. Talks about history, hunting techniques and tips, plus the Louisiana cookery. Great buy for a real man's man.

The photographs in this book are magnificent and the research, content and recipes are even better. Im giving it to a hunter who has everything and been everywhere. I ordered it on a Thursday and received it the next Monday.
