Hunting For The Holidays

For many hunters, the hunt is a means to an end. A successful hunt yields meat to be cooked in a variety of ways. On this episode, we'll learn of some great hunting opportunities and some great recipes to try with your family.

Chef Joel Antunes grew up in rural France and learned to cook wild game on his grandmother's wood-burning stove. He still loves to prepare wild game and wild-game-inspired dishes in his new Atlanta restaurant, Joel. Chef Joel will prepare a quail dish, which is just perfect for your next holiday gathering.

Next, we'll visit Watershed Restaurant in Decatur, Georgia, where Chef Scott Peacock is famous for his fried chicken and great southern side dishes. He'll show us how to safely prepare a Thanksgiving feast outdoors by frying a turkey.

And lastly, for thousands of years hunters have fed their own families, now the Hunters For the Hungry Program gives deer hunters a way to help feed folks they don't even know! The Atlanta Community Food Bank will be on hand to show us how this program works for many less fortunate Georgians.
