Author Event - Buck, Buck, Moose with Hank Shaw

The Avid Reader is happy to welcome back author Hank Shaw for a presentation, discussion, and signing of his newest book, Buck, Buck, Moose: Recipes and Techniques for Cooking Deer, Elk, Moose, Antelope and Other Antlered Things on Friday, December 16th starting at 7:30 p.m as part of his nationwide tour celebrating the release of his newest cookbook.

This is not your father's venison cookbook. Buck, Buck, Moose is the first comprehensive, lushly photographed, full-color guide to working with and cooking all forms of venison, including deer, elk, moose, antelope, and caribou. 

The Pioneer Woman Cooks author Ree Drummond says "I've lived on a cattle ranch for twenty years, so venison in all its forms has always been a bit of a mystery to me. For that reason, I devoured every page of Buck, Buck, Moose. Hank Shaw lives, sleeps, eats, and breathes venison--and his passion is palpable. From laying out the ancient connection between man and deer to presenting clear, hands-on instructions for handling and cooking venison, no stone is left unturned. Hank has absolutely outdone himself, and I know this book will be enjoyed by venison enthusiasts and novices alike."

Buck, Buck, Moose will take you around the world, from nose to tail. The book features more than 100 recipes ranging from traditional dishes from six continents to original recipes never before seen. 
You'll also get thorough instructions on how to butcher, age and store your venison, as well as how to use virtually every part of the animal. Buck, Buck, Moose also includes a lengthy section on curing venison and sausage-making. 

Peppered throughout are stories of the hunt and essays on why venison holds such a special place in human society. Venison is far more than mere food. It is, in many ways, what made us human.
