Author, blogger, and chef Hank Shaw returns to Washington College on Saturday, December 3, to talk about his new book Buck, Buck, Moose, and to discuss the best ways to prepare that deer you bagged for your table. Following his talk he will demonstrate how to prepare underutilized parts of a deer, and he’ll be on hand to sign copies of his book.
The event at 3 p.m. in Litrenta Hall is free and open to the public.
This will be Shaw’s second visit to Washington College, following his talk in April 2015 that was based on his first cookbook, Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast. Shaw has published three books, including Duck, Duck, Goose: Recipes and Techniques for Ducks and Geese, both Wild and Domestic, and now Buck, Buck, Moose: Recipes and Techniques for Cooking Deer, Elk, Antelope, Moose and other Antlered Things. Shaw has also published stories in Food & Wine and Field and Stream magazines.
His website/blog, the Hunter Angler Gardener Cook, won Best Food Blog by the James Beard Foundation in 2013 and was nominated in 2009 and 2010. He also won the Bert Greene Award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals for Best Food Blog in both 2010 and 2011.
The event is co-sponsored by the Center for Environment & Society and the Department of Anthropology. For more details, go to https://www.washcoll.edu/live/events/12248-buck-buck-moose. For more information on Hank Shaw’s work visit http://honest-food.net/.
