Wild Game Recipes
For many hunters, the joy of hunting extends to the dinner table, where they can share their wholesome harvest with friends and family over stories of their time in the woods. Here are a few recipes from the files of Chef Will Beriau, a Mainer and hunter, to inspire your menu.
Wild Turkey Burger
Fresh dill enhances the natural flavor of wild turkey creating the juiciest, most flavorful patty you can imagine. Top it with bacon, onion, tomato, lettuce, and a secret sauce and we promise you will be ready to head afield next season.
"Since our family became residents of this great state of Maine in 1986, I have enjoyed hunting and fishing and enjoyed the bounty that has been provided. From wild turkey, to moose, black bear, venison, duck, partridges, rabbits and the fresh fish varieties our pristine waters offer, my family and I ( and friends) have had the benefit of these species at our dinner table on many occasions. As a professional chef, I have had the opportunity to apply professional skills to get the most out of each variety. I hope you enjoy the recipes that have been provided." Bon appetite, Chef Will Beriau
