Sportsmen Can Cook
The family and friends we see in the Adirondacks are incredibly gracious and generous hosts for several of the nights we are in the North Country. Traditionally I like to let the matriarch get a break and make dinner for the crew. I have done duck gumbo and wild boar ragu and jambalaya as a few examples. Rarely is the head count less than 12. This year I went with a simple menu but a crowd pleaser: Homemade meatballs and pasta with Caesar salad and garlic bread. Simple, but when done with care and attention from scratch...a treat.
For you clothing blog types I am sporting an Orvis pullover in Nantucket red, Levi's jeans and a Rolex GMT II. Behind me is a kick ass Viking range with 6 burners, 2 ovens and a flat-top. It is easy to roll out dinner for 15 when you have the right equipment.
