Now, for today’s Prize Package …
If you love seafood and water fowl, you will really enjoy today’s selection. Chef Jon Bonnell of Bonnell’s Restaurant is a fine dining farm-to-table experience in the middle of Texas. Located just outside of Fort Worth, Chef Bonnell serves certified organic meats, wild game, and fresh Gulf seafood that are infused with Southwestern, Creole and Mexican influences.
In his cookbook, “Jon Bonnell’s Waters Fine Coastal Cuisine,” he shares his passion for seafood. You will enjoy classics like Seared Crabcakes with Scallion Lime Aioli, Crawpuppies, and Lobster Mac and Cheese, or get a little more adventuresome and try his Seared Tilefish with Tarragon Cream Sauce or Braided Poached Arctic Char. And if you want the traditional flavors of the Southwest, don’t miss his Crispy Catfish Tacos with Spicy Slaw. There is truly something for everyone and I know you will enjoy expanding your experiences with preparing seafood.
The second cookbook, “Duck, Duck, Goose” is from Hank Shaw, the author of the wildly popular blog Hunter, Angler, Gardener, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast. Hank is a throw back to an earlier time before there were towns in close proximity and each one came with a fully loaded grocery store. Hank forages, grows, and hunts for virtually all of his food, depending on the earth to provide for him.
He has a large garden that overflows with produce during the long growing season in California. He is also accomplished at charcuterie and preserving meats in the traditional manners. He smokes, dries, and turns fresh meats into products that can be held for months – these are put to use when the seasons change and the earth goes dormant as it waits for the arrival of spring.
In Duck, Duck, Goose: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Waterfowl, Both Farmed and Wild, Hank has given us the tools we need to clean and butcher the birds we find on hunting trips and prepare them in a wide variety of ways. The book is perfect for the hunters in your family, but home cooks can enjoy it too because Hank has also written each recipe so it can be used with the birds purchased at the store. My copy is already dog-eared and worn, with splattered pages and notes in the margins. I know you will enjoy is as much as The Artist and I have.
