Let me warn you that eating game may bring out the wild streak we all have inside us. Be prepared should a little wildness ensue. We really are what we eat.
Despite the warnings of past decades, we have now returned to our senses and realize that, for most of us, red meat is an essential component of our diets. After all, we did not claw our way to the top of the food chain to eat only vegetables. Game should be considered health food because game forages for its natural diet. We have eaten game for millions of years and our systems are geared to the leaner game rather than the fatty domestic animals.
Stocks and sauces made from the slow reduction of game meats, such as duck, are some of the most nutritious delights on the planet and are found in most cultures. The gelatin found in stocks aids in digestion and protein utilization. Besides the health beneﬁts, meat or game stocks are the basis for delicious and satisfying sauces. The extra ﬂavors from the creation of a well-prepared sauce heightens the overall satisfaction of any enticing dish.
I hope you enjoy preparing my Wild Cusine recipes at home.
