“This delightful book will be appreciated by the country cook, by the busy host or hostess running a shooting and game fishing lodge, by hunters and sportsmen, and by everyone else who has time to settle down for a good read - for as well as being a practical, imaginative and comprehensive game cookery book, it is fun.
“Julia Drysdale, a cook who is as much at home on the hill as she is in her kitchen, has collected over 350 original and exciting recipes - many her own, others provided by The Game Conservancy, cookery writers such as Elizabeth David, James Beard and Jane Grigson, from friends and other sources. Mrs. Drysdale really knows about and enjoys food, and her approach to the subject is warm, personal, and often humorous.
“Informative introductions lead into a wide variety of recipes, ranging from tender young game at the start of the season, such as Partridge in Vine Leaves or Palombes á la Béarnaise to ways of tackling tough old warriors such as Very, Very Old Grouse; from the delicate and subtle flavour of Rabbit with Tarragon or Truite au Bleu to sturdy venison stews. Each chapter has been beautifully illustrated by Anne Knight.”
