Based on the high-rating TV1 series of the same name, Hunger for the Wild follows Wellington restaurateurs Al Brown and Steve Logan as they travel the country exploring great places and excellent wild food. Along the way learn about the local food, the land around it and the people who harvest it. Each chapter includes mouth-watering recipes and information on history and local identities. With crayfish on the West Coast, scallops in Nelson, wild pig up the Whanganui River, paua from the Wellington coast, pheasant in Rotorua, whitebait on the West Coast, rabbit in Otago, flounder in Kawhia, crabs from Waikanae and eel from Canterbury, this book covers our heartland and its wonderful produce in lively style. This will appeal to: lovers of the TV show; keen Logan Brown fans; mainstream New Zealanders who are into hunting, shooting, fishing; the regional audience who love books that showcase their area; foodies who are into local produce; and people looking for a great New Zealand gift book with a twist.
Steve Logan and Al Brown are good kiwi lads with a twist of the refined. They share a love of fishing, hunting and the great outdoors and they also run one of the country's most successful upmarket restaurants, Logan Brown in Wellington.
