The Camp Chef Does Wild Game

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Jul 8, 2005 - Cooking - 136 pages
In August of 2002, I put on my first cooking seminar at a local Hunting, Fishing and Camping store.  After have done several of these cooking seminars, I was repeatedly ask by several customers if I would write a cook book with the recipes from my cooking seminars in them.  so I set down and wrote "The Camp Chef Does Wild Game".  it includes 6 chapters of wild game recipes (along with some commentary with my own warped sense of humor) And The 7th chapter is my recipes from my cooking seminars.
After selling about 300 copies at my cooking seminars, I decided that I might be on to something and wrote my second cook book (at the request of female spectators), The Camp Chef Does Fish and Seafood".   Both cookbooks have done exceedingly well since that time and I am currently writing a 3rd, "The Camp Chef Does Old Country Cooking", soon to be released.
Of course, along with the cookbooks, people wanted to know what seasonings I was using and where they could get them.  Needless to say, I was using my own blends and started having them bottled and labeled and produced in mass quantities.  the seasoning, along with the cookbooks has done very well.  Being the energetic guy that I am, I started my own clothing line to compliment the cookbooks and that too is going over very well.
The cover for this cookbook was shot at Raccoon State Park, just outside of Pittsburgh and I would like to thank Park Officials and DNCR Officers for allowing me access To The area in which the photos were taken.
When it comes to cooking my Dad gave me some advice that has always served my well.  He said, "Cook it the way you like it, that way if now one else does, you will have plenty to eat".  to this I will add a couple of bits of advise of my own.  "If it smells bad, don't eat it" and "Kill it, cook it and feed it to your friends".  I have always enjoyed sharing that which I have enjoyed so much and I hope that you will enjoy this book as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to you.

About the author (2005)

I was born in a small Hospital in Linton, Indiana on January 27, 1954.  A native of Bloomington, Indiana, I now live in Pittsburgh PA.  I have owned 2 different Restaurants (one fast food and one Family Dining) and managed 3 others restaurants and a seafood wholesale/retail outlet.  I have helped cater or have catered events since I was big enough to help, or at the age of 5, I at least thought that I was big enough to help.

My cooking has been influence; not only with Midwest cooking, but having lived in North Carolina for 8 years (and loving the Calabash style cooking) a lot of southern influence has been introduced as well.  I have traveled the US and the world and always sample the local cuisines. I have found that diversity in my cooking styles has been an asset to my continued success.

Being an avid hunter and fisherman and loving to cook, I developed a number of seasoning blends to augment the flavors of my dishes.  After taking a part time job at a local Hunting, Fishing and Camping store, (as I was working on replacing my hunting and camping stuff), I was ask one day to do a cooking seminar.  Since that first cooking seminar back in August of 2002, I have been doing cooking seminars on a monthly (and sometimes weekly) basis.  I now put on seminars at a number of different locations and for many different types of companies in and around the Pittsburgh area.  I have put on cooking seminars at 2 different major Sporting Goods Shows and for the National Wild Turkey Federation, at which, my cookbooks and seasonings have been a great success.

In addition to being “The Camp Chef”, I am also an award winning professional photographer.  Not only can I make it taste good, but I can make it look good too.
