ARC Book Review:

Do you have a Hunter in your Family? I do and this Cookbook is the perfect gift for them. Like the Author my Dad introduced me too hunting and my Mom cooked we brought Home. In Bad times this was the family meat source,

I appreciate this author being a self taught Chef and a hunter herself. And She covers everything from butchering to breakfast meals. The Cookbook is filled with lots of tips and tricks to prepare the meat. So if you have picky eaters in your family they will never turn down meat from the Wild again. I enjoyed this Cookbook very much and recommend this book to friends and family. ARC from Net Galley.

I bought this book for my nephew after reviewing this book he will love it.
