LoveReading View on The Claire MacDonald Game Cookbook

For anyone wanting to try Game Cookery, this is an ideal starting point, as Claire MacDonald states, don't expect any culinary show-off dishes and recipes that use every saucepan in the house. Just good, hearty meals using some of the best produce you can find. You'll find some of the classics here – starting with a majestic game pie and some new ideas – I was very taken with the idea for Duck with a lime and gin sauce – sounds delicious. ~ Sue Baker

The Claire MacDonald Game Cookbook Synopsis

In addition to tips on roasting, she also includes useful information on what combines well with different types of game - lentils, beans, root vegetables, dark green vegetables and mushrooms - and sauces and jellies that make excellent accompaniments. She also shows how game can be combined - game pie, for example, can be composed of pheasant, grouse, a leg of hare or a partridge. Similar recipes include, game pudding with a lemon and thyme suet crust, game stock, game soup, salami of game, game terrine, game with an oatmeal crumble, potted game with walnuts, and game shepherd's pie.
