The Great Outdoors Cookbook

Posted May 27, 2011, at 1:42 p.m.

Starting today the Outdoors pages will feature a weekly recipe (or two) from “The Great Outdoors Wild Game Cookbook,” a compilation of tasty concoctions from Maine Guides and camp cooks.

These recipes were first published in the cookbook by the Maine Professional Guides Association in the early 1990’s. Recipes were gathered from guides and lodges around the state with many camp cooks providing their “secret” recipes.

Many of the contributors are still guiding or running their lodges. A visit to their camps today might be an opportunity to taste some of these tried-and-true favorites.

The Maine Professional Guides Association is an organization of outdoor professionals dedicated to promoting quality, ethical outdoor experiences. For more information about MPGA visit  www.maineguides.org.
