How to hunt and cook moose, fallow deer, roe deer, wild boar, hare, grouse, duck and pigeon

By Mikael Einarsson and Hubbe Lemon

Kocken och jägaren is the best game cookbook we have been able to find for moose, fallow deer and wild boar. In it you will find several fantastic recipes that really take your game meat to new heights.

The book combines classic game cooking with solid hunting knowledge and practical tips. You will learn how to hunt and cook moose, fallow deer, roe deer, wild boar, hare, grouse, duck and pigeon, but also how to use more parts of the animal, which parts are best eaten fresh and which you should freeze.

The Chef & the Hunter is also packed with classic cookery skills such as how to tie up a roast, pluck blood pigeon and how to make good game stock to keep in the freezer. They cook creamy Wallenbergers on venison mince for the family, make their own venison sausage to eat with a cup of broth on the pass, and offer the hunting team the world's best moose cabbage dumplings cooked over an open fire.

Mikael Einarsson is head chef at Frantzén's new venture Brasseri Astoria in Stockholm and has extensive experience of professionally preparing game both from The Square in London (two stars in the Michelin Guide) and from the classic kitchens Leijontornet, Pontus in the Greenhouse and Skebo Herrgård. He has been hunting for the last five years.

Hubbe Lemon runs Järinge gård in Roslagen, where he also does the hunting. He has hunted and fished since childhood and is involved in game management, hunting and guiding throughout the year.

When Mikael Einarsson worked as a chef at Skebo Manor in Roslagen, he became good friends with the farm's hunter Hubbe Lemon. Using their long experience from both the restaurant and the forest, they have now written a book together.

Very nice book

High quality game meat

Our concept is to offer the best game meat available, directly to you, the end customer. We make sure you can buy the cuts that are otherwise only sold to wholesalers and fine restaurants.

100% natural

We would argue that there is no meat in the world that is as gentle on animals, requires so little of the earth's resources to produce, and has such a low carbon footprint as Swedish game meat.

A healthy alternative

Game meat is naturally lean and nutritious because the animals live a free range life and graze naturally. This makes for a cleaner and healthier meat choice.
