Editorial Reviews

Review

“Being just south of where I grew up, I felt right at home in this environment, as if I were in a room of my uncles.” - Donald Link

 

From the Back Cover

Wild Abundancecaptures the time-honored Southern hunting camp experience in stunning photographs and moving descriptions by some of my very favorite chefs. I was immediately reminded of the tales my grandfather told of his duck hunting exploits, and I can still taste the magic his cook worked with the bounty he brought home. Happily, there is also plenty of magic on these pages. This book is a real gift to anyone who loves the South and its traditions and, above all, good food.”JULIA REED
Author ofThe House on First StreetandHam Biscuits, Hostess Gowns, and Other Southern Specialties“Fighting Bayou is the best place in the world for unbelievable duck hunting, fabulous Southern cooking and listening to great stories from true characters. I always cherish my time at this special place.”ELI MANNING“In wonderful photography and delicious recipes,Wild Abundanceoffers a rare glimpse into one of the nation's hidden worlds, the South's venerable hunting clubs where time has stood still, where the primordial face-off between humans and nature continues and where the cooking remains some of the finest to be found.”MOLLY O'NEILL
Author ofOne Big Table: A Portrait of American Cooking“Along with visions of some of my Southern chef friends having the time of their lives, the spirit of the South is what lives on in the timeless anthologyWild Abundance. The winter bird hunt, a Southern rite of passage, is usually a private time with close friends and family - coming together to break bread and share in the ancient ritual of hunting for sustenance. While plenty of strong drink brings out a Roman feasting element, all is bound by a Southern sense of hospitality and gracious sharing. It brings an almost spiritual side to the predawn winter night - freezing cold, nervous with anticipation - all captured on these glorious pages with chefs, camp cooks and good buddies. I wish I were there. Well, next winter, let's go. But until then,Wild Abundancewill happily do.”FRANK STITT
Chef, author and owner of Highlands Bar and Grill“Louisiana and the southern United States are uniquely poised at the apex of the Mississippi flyway, and every autumn finds sportsmen ready for another season in the blind. While fielding wild fowl is a birthright in the South, being named camp cook is a privilege and honor bestowed upon few. Yes, sportsmen live for crisp mornings on the marsh, but perhaps most cherished are the culinary masterpieces created at spectacular mansions in the marsh such as Richard Zuschlag's Grande View Lodge in Creole, Louisiana, and in fabulous cookbooks likeWild Abundance.”CHEF JOHN FOLSE
Host of PBS'A Taste of Louisiana and author ofAfter the Hunt

Wild Abundance not only provides 80+ fabulous southern cooking recipes, there are stories of the 9 southern chefs and their experiences at famed hunting clubs, as well as, an intimate view of many a "character". This is what makes Wild Abundance a rewarding glimpse into a world we may know well or one that is quite foreign and intriguing.

Enter into the true DIE HARD world of real duck hunters...those who see it as not merely a diversion, but a LIFESTYLE. I know this because I am one of them and our camp is featured in this book. Excellent job - this book perfectly captures the spirit of the hunt. On behalf of all the Swamp Witches, I give this book five stars!

I first saw a copy of this book on my friend's coffee table. I didn't want to put it down. When I came home I had to order my own copy. For the Southern Cook and Duckhunter. It is a great history of duck clubs of the South as well as some of the finest southern recipes. I highly recommend this book.
