Scotland

Life has gotten busy, so it's been difficult keeping up with this blog. However, we are cooking more than ever, and the best way to keep up with what we're doing is to follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook. Until we can post again here, I'll leave an Instagram feed to highlight our latest eats in kitchen.

For the last couple of years, we've been deep in the trenches of recipe development for various hunting/fishing media outlets, and it's been wonderful. It's been really great for us to be able to finally turn this passion into something that is giving us a bit of financial freedom, which also allows us to cook a lot more than ever before. Look for us on the Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network, Petersen's Hunting, North American Whitetail, Game and Fish, Petersen's Bowhunting and Bowhunter digital.

Any exciting news? We went to Scotland three weeks ago-- the first big vacation either of us has taken since all this started. It was also for our belated honeymoon. And yes, we ate lots of game and fish and thought about all of you, and how we were going to incorporate what we learned and saw back at home. From venison to guinea fowl to fresh lobster, cod, oysters and scallops ... there was no shortage of game and seafood in Scotland. The produce was also amazing. The Scots really do have the farm-to-field and field-to-table approach to cooking down pat. We did a bit of trout fishing, lots of hiking, foraging, eating-- of course, and sightseeing, and had the time of our lives.

If you love the outdoors, the hunting/fishing way of life, history and good food like we do, we highly recommend Scotland. Spend some time on the Isle of Skye with Mitch Partridge, the "Skye Ghillie"-- he'll show you where the best sights are for wild walking, fishing and hunting. We dream of returning to Scotland for a stag hunt someday soon.

Until next time ... Thanks for reading and being with us all these years!
