Scott Leysath has a mission: to give you venison recipes you'll use again and again. Nothing makes him happier than a cookbook full of food stains and hand-written notes. This book features 100 of his favorites, from appetizers, salads, soups and stews, stovetop dishes, great grilled venison and more. If you long for better-tasting venison, you're in for a treat. Known as The Sporting Chef, Scott is America's leading authority on the proper preparation of fish and game. He has worked in the food industry since 1978. His first television show, The Sporting Chef, has been syndicated worldwide since 2003. His second show, HuntFishCook, has aired throughout the United States and Canada since 2005. And his newest show, Dead Meat, takes him across North America in search of folks who hunt, fish, trap and cook unusual creatures. He's also the cooking editor for Ducks Unlimited magazine.
