Publisher Description

“If Jack Kerouac had hung out with Julia Child instead of Neal Cassady, this book might have been written fifty years ago.”—The Wall Street Journal

When outdoorsman, avid hunter, and nature writer Steven Rinella stumbles upon Auguste Escoffier’s 1903 milestone Le Guide Culinaire, he’s inspired to assemble an unusual feast: a forty-five-course meal born entirely of Escoffier’s esoteric wild game recipes. Over the course of one unforgettable year, he steadily procures his ingredients—fishing for stingrays in Florida, hunting mountain goats in Alaska, flying to Michigan to obtain a fifteen-pound snapping turtle—and encountering one colorful character after another. And as he introduces his vegetarian girlfriend to a huntsman’s lifestyle, Rinella must also come to terms with the loss of his lifelong mentor—his father. An absorbing account of one man’s relationship with family, friends, food, and the natural world, The Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine is a rollicking tale of the American wild and its spoils.

Inspiring

Steve rambles through this book in the same narrative style of his TV show, which I love. It's an inspiration for me in my quest to beg, plead, trick and shame my friends and family into eating all of the things my buddies and I enjoy hunting and fishing for. Hunting is about more than guitar riffs and kill shots and nobody epitomizes that spirt better.

Must read for a hunter or Angler

Great book! If you enjoy hunting, fishing or just eating meat you'll enjoy this book. Steven Rinella is a fantastic outdoor writer and I recommend all his books to my hunting buddies.
