Letter about the Hunting Chef

This is Megan Nanna, the Hunting Chef’s oldest daughter. I thought I would spice up his blog a bit, and also give his readers some more insight about my dad. This is in hopes that you will find him even more interesting, and follow his blog! (Oh, not to mention that this is a way…

Dungeness Crab with Black Bean Sauce

Here we go folks…another great recipe from the “Silver Fox” Ken Silva.  He has been after me for two years to make this recipe. Ken is a San Jose, California local.  His grandparents lived in San Jose when farming was the main resource, not technology.  He is one of the last true gentlemen in this…

2013 Grand Oyster BBQ Championship

Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to the 2013 Grand Oyster BBQ Championship held in Seaside, Oregon.  While fishing for Sturgeon, actually while watching Ben fishing for Sturgeon each contestant was allowed to phone in their ingredients to a hot supply line for the evening Oyster BBQ event.  When we returned to the house after fishing it…

The Hunting Chef 44 Birthday-Argentina Style Part two

This is the second day of my 44 birthday celebration. The morning began with breakfast for 12 people.  I pull out the World War one Cast Iron skillet that Grover casted me off his original one.  It is one heavy piece of cooking equipment to add to the arsenal but it produces amazing food. I call this the “Kitchen Sink”…

The Silver Fox Italian Red Sauce

I think all of us have had a red sauce either on pasta or lasagna that people who either made it for you or took you the resteraunt says it’s the best sauce or gravy ever.  Trust me, my last name is Nanna and it is Italian and I, myself have said it about my…

Cast Iron Beef Tenderloin wrapped in Bacon

The Thanksgiving holiday we spent with some family friends at the beach, they made a traditional fantastic turkey dinner with all the trimmings.  Turkey makes me tired, not like just a little sleepy.  It is like some one hit me with a Rhino tranquilizer dart.  They say that it has DNA that affects us that…

Burnt Tomato, Goat Cheese, and Anchovy Bruschetta

One of my favorite cook books of all times is called Seven Fires by Francis Mallmann.  I bought it because we will be spending some time down in Patagonia this year on two separate trips and I am excited about the food!  Look at me, the fat kid who gets excited about food.  I swear the…

Big Wayne and his Famous Water Bathed Brisket

This is my buddy Wayne. Wayne is about 6’5″ and two inches shorter than Todd.  Wayne is tall and big, he is very sensitive.  Here is Big Wayne feeding the wild life pototoe salad.  This little doe will probably not make the cute little poop pellets like she should tommorow morning. You may recognize him…

3 Rednecks and the familes and a whole lot of eating…….

Once a year, two other couples and us get together for rafting, eating, and little bit of drinking.  This year we had to change the plan because of our kids, so we ventured over to Todd and Alice’s place by Billy Chinook Lake.  We knew it was going to be a food fest because all…

Big Hess and his famous Huevos Rancheros

Every once and awhile I get the opportunity to blog about some other person’s great meal.  I never blog about restaurants because you are paying them for the service, compared to someone else who cooks for free straight from the heart.  This weekend we were visiting our friends in Sacramento.  Mike and Jan Hester have…
