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"

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.

Honestly expecting a little more, these are the duck club of the rich and famous.
Nothing like you're typical duck club.
I initially bought this book as a gift, and subsequently gave it to the hunter/cook. That said, I loved it so much I got another one just for me! Beautiful and tasty.Published on December 28, 2012 by WizardStick
