The Scavenger's Guide to Haute Cuisine
How I Spent a Year in the American Wild to Re-create a Feast from the Classic Recipes of French Master Chef Auguste Escoffier

As host of TV’s MeatEater Steve Rinella attempts to recreate the dishes in Escoffier’s legendary cookbook, The Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine is at once an adventure in hunting and gathering and a visceral experience of the distance between ourselves and the food we love.

After stumbling upon August Escoffier’s 1903 culinary milestones Le Guide Culinaire, outdoorsman, avid hunter, and nature writer Steven Rinella embarks on an unusual quest to procure all necessary ingredients for a forty-five-course meal, born entirely of Escoffier’s esoteric wild game recipes. For one year, Rinella traverses the country assembling his feast—fishing for stingrays in Florida, flying cross-country to Michigan to obtain a fifteen-pound snapping turtle, and hunting mountain goats in Alaska. While in pursuit of his ingredients, Rinella encounters colorful characters, introduces his vegetarian girlfriend to the lifestyle and dishes of a huntsman, and comes to terms with the loss of his lifelong (if not culinary) mentor, his father. The Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine is a delicious, absorbing account of one man’s relationship with his family, friends, food, and, of course, the natural world.

“If Jack Kerouac had hung out with Julia Child instead of Neal Cassady, this book might have been written fifty years ago. . . . Steven Rinella brings bohemian flair and flashes of poetic sensibility to his picaresque tale of a man, a cookbook, and the culinary open road.”The Wall Street Journal

“If you rue the ‘depersonalization of food production,’ or you’re tired of chemical ingredients, [Rinella] will make you howl.”Los Angeles Times

“A walk on the wild side of hunting and gathering, sure to repel a few professional food sissies but attract many more with its sheer in-your-face energy and fine storytelling.”—Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall

“[A] warped, wonderful memoir of cooking and eating . . . [Rinella] recounts these madcap wilderness adventures with delicious verve and charm.”Men’s Journal
