Plymouth, Minn. — Outdoor News Inc., publisher of locally written fishing and hunting outdoor newspapers in seven Great Lakes states, offers readers of its Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New York publications a recipe by Chef Jesse Griffiths from his cookbook Afield: A Chef’s Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish. Griffiths’ contribution for “Gratin Crappie & Potatoes” can be found in Outdoor News publications beginning January 9, 2015.
“The Outdoor News Taste of the Wild cooking feature is centered on recipes that give hunters and anglers practical ideas to use their game and fish,” said Evy Gebhardt, marketing director for Outdoor News. “We partner with notable chefs from across the country that embrace this lifestyle and recognize the relationship outdoor enthusiasts have between their wild harvest and the dinner table. In reviewing Chef Griffiths’ cookbook, we felt that recipes from this collection would resonate with Outdoor News readers.”
The featured recipe for preparing crappie fillets is from the cookbook written by Jesse Griffiths, that includes a foreword by Andrew Zimmern, and photography by Jody Horton.
Afield throws open the doors of field dressing for novice and experienced hunters alike, supplying the know-how for the next logical step in the local, sustainable food movement. Stemming from a commitment to locally grown vegetables and nose-to-tail cooking, Griffiths is an expert guide on this tour of tradition and taste, offering a combination of hunting lessons, butchery methods, recipes, including how to scale, clean, stuff, fillet, skin, braise, fry and more. Fellow hunting enthusiast and food photographer Jody Horton takes you into the field, follows Griffiths step-by-step along the way and then provides you with exquisite plate photograph of the finished feasts. Filled with descriptive stories and photographs, Afield takes the reader along for the hunt, from duck and dove to deer and wild hog.
