“This cookbook is crazy! It has all kinds of recipes in here from cooking fish to armadillo! Although I have to admit it is highly unlikely I will be cooking very many of these recipes because I am WAY too chicken to cook some of these critters, it was very entertaining to read through this book. There are recipes in here using game I would never even dream of eating, or thought could be eaten, which made me laugh out loud! Not every recipe is crazy, there are some good ones too! Definitely worth a read! Would make a great gift for the camper in your life!”
