When outdoorsman, avid hunter, and nature writer Steven Rinella stumbles upon Auguste Escoffiera€™s 1903 milestone Le Guide Culinaire, hea€™s inspired to assemble an unusual feast: a forty-five-course meal born entirely of Escoffiera€™s esoteric wild game recipes. Over the course of one unforgettable year, he steadily procures his ingredientsa€”fishing for stingrays in Florida, hunting mountain goats in Alaska, flying to Michigan to obtain a fifteen-pound snapping turtlea€”and encountering one colorful character after another.
