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 Abundance" captures 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 of "The House on First Street" and "Ham 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 Abundance" offers 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 of "One 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 anthology "Wild 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 Abundance" will 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 like "Wild Abundance.""CHEF JOHN FOLSE
Host of PBS' "A Taste of Louisian"a and author of "After the Hunt"

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.

I call it a dream book, because the food, the lodges and the hunting are all top drawer. The photography captures the essence of these beautiful places, with recipes that allow the reader to "join in."

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.

This is a perfect wildgame cookbook in my opinion. It is not my favorite in my collection but it meets the criteria I look for in a wildgame cookbook, it has a variety of recipes covering a large selection of game, has beautiful pictures, and has good stories.

Recipes range from tailgating finger food to full on entrees, and from simple to somewhat difficult to complete. Some of the recipes are common foods that are elevated a bit and I like that. Not a lot of the recipes wow me like some do in other books but thats not really the point of this cookbook. This book is more about the camaraderie of a hunting camp and the great food eaten there even if it isn't gourmet.

I really like this cookbook overall. It certainly isn't my favorite but I would purchase it again. It is a great addition to a collection and would make a great gift for someone who enjoys cooking and hanging around hunting camp.

I've given this beautiful book as a gift again and again. I'll start it off by having Chef Kelly English or Karen Carrier sign it and tell the recipient to take the book with them to each chef's restaurant and have them sign it too. It's a fun a great way to get to know the men and women behind the plate.

What an opportunity for a Christmas gift. This book is a joy to comb through and read about chef interactions at hunting clubs with each other and patrons. Can't wait to try some of the recipes. Knowing some of the chefs makes it more interesting. And best of all is the price $45. Get it now as the printing was limited.
