    Food Fight Friday: Redfish vs. Goose

    By David Draper

    As you come to know me, you will find out I am a sucker for praise. A compliment or kind word will get you places, like a mention in this blog. As evidence, I give you reader Shawn McCardell, who not only likes my recipe for goose bites, but also took a pretty good picture to accompany the praise. So it should go without saying he gets my vote in this week’s Food Fight against Colin’s stuffed redfish. (Of course, Colin signs my paychecks, so maybe I need to rethink who to cast my vote for).

    Recipe: Cedar-Roasted Char

    By Jonathan Miles

    When Jeff McInnis—the chef at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in Miami Beach—isn’t cooking, he’s likely fishing. In this recipe, the Florida native combines his passions, creating a summertime symphony on the plate. At Yardbird, McInnis uses Arctic char, but any fresh fish will shine here, even a lunker bass.

    Public Faces of Hunting: Georgia Pellegrini vs. Ted Nugent

    By David Draper

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen the smiling face of celebrity chef and hunter Georgia Pelligrini. Since about the first of the year, she’s been popping up all over, promoting the new book Girl Hunter, which recounts her journey from Wall Street into the woods. Pelligrini has shown up on local and national news programs, Iron Chef and even Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she deftly showed the affable host and his sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez how to whip up some wild boar meatballs (and, for Rodriguez, how to not contract trichinosis in the process).

    Alternatives to the Red Solo Cup

    By David Draper

    Can we all please stop drinking the Toby Keith-spiked Kool-Aid and admit that his little ditty “Red Solo Cup” is the worst song ever written, bar none. I would rather listen to “Pac Man Fever” on repeat than hear another drunk co-ed slur through the chorus while splashing warm, stale beer down, as Keith so eloquently puts it, “the front of my back.”

    While I can appreciate the form and function of a red Solo cup, the unfathomable popularity of such a stupid song (or pretty much any Toby Keith song) has not only further eroded my already-thin faith in humanity, but also forced me to boycott the crimson cups on principle alone. This leaves me with a few alternatives for my summer cocktailing.

    Recipe: Salt-Crusted Fish

    By Jonathan Miles

    Roasting fish that’s encased inside a salt crust is a centuries-​old method of ensuring moist, ultra-flavorful flesh. The dramatic presentation is just a happy bonus. Nearly any fish benefits from this treatment, and feel free to adjust the herbs as desired. For an easy side, toss some cut potatoes in olive oil with salt and pepper, spread them on a roasting pan, and put the pan in at the same time as the fish.

    Food Fight Friday: Walleye vs. Halibut

    By David Draper

    If you were to rank fish in terms of flavor, walleye and halibut would definitely break the top five, if not right into the top two spots. The thing about each mild, white-fleshed fish is they’re great vehicles for all sorts of flavor profiles and preparation techniques. Both get some special treatment this week, one from south of the border and the other from the epicenter of haute cuisine: France.

    Recipe: Levi Banks' Venison Popover

    By David Draper

    Last Friday’s Food Fight featured a great looking popover-style pastry from Wild Chef reader Levi Banks. Levi always cooks up some amazing, original dishes (of which you’ll see more in upcoming Food Fights) and, most importantly, is willing to share his recipes with the rest of us.

    Is Axis Deer the Best Game Meat?

    By David Draper

    I know this goes against the horn-happy hogwash shown on what passes for outdoor television, but when I’m after an animal, especially when it’s a species I haven’t hunted before, I’m not counting antler inches before I pull the trigger. Instead, I’m thinking about how that animal is going to taste. So when I got a chance to hunt axis deer in south Texas last week, I was excited to finally get the chance to bite into an animal that’s widely praised as the best game meat on the planet.

    Food Fight Friday: Moose vs. Deer

    by David Draper

    Venison Popover vs. Moose Tenderloin

    This week’s Food Fight features a couple of readers going at it, and I have an idea of who might win but I’m hedging my bet. Just when I think I have Wild Chef readers all figured out, you go and surprise me by picking the turkey roulades over the boar barbacoa in last week’s Food Fight. So, I’m reserving my prediction until the early returns are in. No matter who comes out on top, I’m sending each of them a bottle of Cabela’s Open Season Spice Blend.
