Turkey and Green Papaya Salad

Turkey season is all about transitions. At the beginning of my season, I drive to hunt with the heat on in the truck, and you can usually see your breath in the predawn. By mid-season, I’m running the AC and soaked in sweat by the end of the morning. This transition happens with the dishes I cook as...

Morel Mushrooms on Toast

This recipe takes a few pointers from the British dish Welsh rarebit, but with a couple tweaks to make the cheese spread less overpowering. Normally, I would reach for sharp cheddar for just about any occasion, but less is more in this recipe. The same applies for the beer portion. Traditional Welsh...

Fried Shad Roe

Odds are, if you’re not from the Mid-Atlantic, you’ve never heard of fried shad roe. Which, honestly, is a damn shame.

Smoked Turkey Legs

Wild turkey legs are one of the toughest cuts of wild game I’ve ever cooked. These 20-pound birds spend all day running around looking for food, fighting, and avoiding all types of predators. It’s no wonder their skinny little legs are densely muscled and full of hard tendons. You can braise or...

Berry Salsa

Berries aren’t exactly what comes to mind when you think of salsa. But they make an excellent summer chip dip that is savory and sweet and packs a bonus punch of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. I suggest making a double batch of this berry salsa because while it goes well with tortilla chips, it...

Moroccan Braised Rabbit

This Moroccan-inspired dish consists of warm spices, savory tomato, and sweet figs that cook down to create a fragrant, rich sauce. Quartered rabbits slowly braise until the meat slips off the bone. I like to serve it with Israeli couscous, preserved lemons, and mint to create a complex stew that's...
