Born from the principles of the local food movement, a growing number of people are returning to hunting and preparing fish and game for their home tables. Afield: A Chef's Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish is at once a manifesto for this movement and a manual packed with everything the new hunter needs to know.  Wild foods, when managed responsibly, are sustainable, ethical, and delicious, and author Jesse Griffiths combines traditional methods of hunting, butchering, and preparing fish and game with 85 mouthwatering recipes.

Afield throws open the doors of field dressing for novice and experienced hunters alike, supplying the know-how for the next logical step in the local, sustainable food movement.  Stemming from a commitment to locally grown vegetables and nose-to-tail cooking, Griffiths is an expert guide on this tour of tradition and taste, offering a combination of hunting lessons, butchery methods, recipes, including how to scale, clean, stuff, fillet, skin, braise, fry and more. Fellow hunting enthusiast and food photographer Jody Horton takes you into the field, follows Griffiths step-by-step along the way and then provides you with exquisite plate photograph of the finished feasts. Filled with descriptive stories and photographs, Afield takes the reader along for the hunt, from duck and dove to deer and wild hog.

Game and fish include:
Doves, Deer, Hogs, Squirrel, Rabbits, Ducks, Geese, Turkey, Flounder, White Bass, Crabs, Catfish, and more.

Book Description: Welcome Books, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "I don''t really see myself plucking doves anytime soon-rather I tend to feed them-but I greatly admire Jesse Griffiths and his work, especially Afield. It''s solid and real, not something stylish and trendy. It''s clear that Jesse takes this work very seriously. That would be enough, but I have to add that the photographs are especially evocative." - Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and Local Flavors "After the Larousse Gastronomique, this book will become my new bible. Afield is part of the new generation of culinary books. Actually, it''s more than just a culinary book, it''s a North American chef d''oeuvre. Enjoy!" - Martin Picardaka "The Wild Chef," author of Au Pied de Cochon Sugar Shack "A kindred spirit and fellow hunter, angler and cook, Jesse Griffiths has created a book that not only highlights the glories of Texas'' abundant game and fish, but is also just as relevant and as useful wherever you can find doves and deer, crabs and crappies. It is one of a very few modern cookbooks that does justice to America''s wild game and fish." - Hank Shaw, author of Hunt, Gather, Cook "Jesse Griffiths practices what most of us only preach when it comes to sustainable eating. Afield shows us that hunting is as much about compassion, respect and knowledge of animals, and the land as it is about the preparation. Much praise goes to Jesse for making the art of hunting and cooking game approachable." - Carla Hall, co-host of The Chew "From his love of hunting and fishing, Jesse Griffiths has created a rare and beautiful book." - April Bloomfield, chef and author of A Girl and Her Pig Advance Praise "Of all the members of The Butcher''s Guild, Jesse is one of the most intrepid and iconoclastic. Gracefully teaching sustainability and holistic cooking in Texas, he has become the young grandaddy to a new generation of chefs and butchers. His prose and approach are as warm as a campfire on a Texas dove-hunt." - Marissa Guggiana, author of Primal Cuts and Off the Me co-founder of The Butcher''s Guild "The recipes are spot-on (I cook; my son is a chef), the photography is gorgeous, and the philosophy is a welcome breath of non-self-righteous rationalization." - James R. Babb, Editor, Gray''s Sporting Journal "This book is inspiring. Jesse captures the energy of the hunter gatherer in a refined and approachable way. This book makes me want to eat Snipe and smoke my own catfish." - Jamie Bissonnette, chef and butcher at Coppa and Toro in Boston "Jesse Griffiths knows what''s important about food.that it''s fresh, local and allowed to speak for itself. He''s an old school chef with deep respect for the land, his farmers and purveyors and the food they produce and it shows through his cooking." - Dave Pasternackaka "The Fish Whisperer," according to the New York author of A Young Man and the Sea "For all who want to take increased responsibility for meat eating and plan to hunt it themselves, Afield is the book to follow. For all who may aspire to hunting, it is the book to read closely for a real sense of the experience. For those who already know the pleasures of the hunt, but may not know how to maximize the pleasures of the table, Afield is the book to cook from." - Deborah Krasner, author of GOOD MEAT "The magic, and why I think Afield is a special work, is that it fully portrays a way of living and thinking that allows us to return to a more simple way to be measured and respected. And it does so without lecturing or pandering. It reminds me that by living a more principled life, I can make my world a better place and I can use food and cooking to do it. This book is a beautiful piece of work, and after you read it, and cook from it, please get outside and get dirty with it. Wherever you are, the great outdoors is waiting for you, afield." - Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods, from his introduction to Afield (Andrew featured Griffiths.
