On our recent trip to Saskatchewan, we were blessed with many things: great weather, skies filled with waterfowl, and a talented chef along for the ride. Great memories were made both in the field and at the table, the way a trip should be in our opinion.
We’re delighted to share a handful of recipes of food we enjoyed on our trip. There are loads of recipes out there for wild game. What we loved about these dishes is that they focused on simple techniques to bring out the flavor in the meat in the best possible sense.
All of our meals were prepared with the help of a great staff at our lodge and the wonderfully talented Stefano Mastracchio. For his regular job, Stefano splits time between José Ignacio, Uruguay and Montauk, New York, where he explores Latin American and Asian cuisine with knowledge and experience built from a career of working in great restaurants around the world. Stefano has worked with renowned chefs such as Francis Mallmann, Frank Castronovo, and Frank Falcinelli doing catering, events, cooking lessons, and coordinating filming productions, with a particular interest in woodfire techniques. For the last six years, Stefano has been working and leading different operations with Fernando Trocca, including in Jose Ignacio, Buenos Aires, Manhattan, Montauk, and London.
We were delighted to share meals and hunts with Stefano. We know you’ll enjoy these recipes that he was gracious enough to share.
