Summary

Unlike many people who hunt, Georgia Pellegrini does not come from a long line of hunters; until recently, she had never even held a gun. But after graduating from the French Culinary Institute, Pellegrini worked at the famed Blue Hill at Stone Barns--where she killed her first turkey. The experience forever changed her ideas about how meat is sourced, and she resolved to learn to hunt. Seeking guidance from some of the most skilled hunters around, she continues to perfect her technique, stock her freezer, and search for recipes in order to transform whatever meat she catches into a delicious meal. Girl Hunterchronicles Pellegrini's adventures as she travels from the mountainside creeks of Montana to the Arkansas delta to a hunting party in England. As she describes how she discovered the joy of hunting, she charts her transformation from whole food lover to passionate hunter. Complete with recipes, Girl Hunter--part comfort food cookbook, part lifestyle guide--is an ode to all that Mother Nature has to offer.
