Hunting Events this Weekend!

November 4-5, 2011

Hunting: A Matter of Life and Death
November 4, 6:30 PM
Litrenta Lecture Hall
Dr. Marc Boglioli, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Drew University and author of the book A Matter of Life and Death: Hunting in Contemporary Vermont, will give a lecture on how contemporary hunters, women as well as men, understand their relationship to their prey. He shows how hunters' attitudes toward animals flow directly from the rural lifeways they have continued to maintain in the face of encroaching urban sensibilities. The result is a rare glimpse into a culture that experiences wild animals in a way that is at once violent, consumptive, and respectful, and that regards hunting as an enduring link to a vanishing past. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Center for Environment & Society. Please contact or 410-810-7162 for more information.

Wild Charcuterie: Making the Most of Your Quarry
November 5, 2:00 PM
Rose O'Neill Literary House Kitchen
Hunting, butchering, and cooking wild animals is an excellent way of connecting to your local environment and gaining access to high quality and nutritious food. However, many of us keep only a relatively small percentage of the animal and in the process discard some very healthy and delicious portions. This cooking demonstration will teach you how to transform these often discarded parts into great foods that can be stored and enjoyed throughout the year. There will be a $15 fee for the registration. $5 for WC faculty/staff, WC students may attend for free. Advanced registration is recommended as space is limited. Please contact or 410-810-7162 for more information or to register. Sponsored by the Center for Environment & Society.
Recipes to be demonstrated (all recipes are subject to change):

1. Venison sausage
2. Goose confit
3. Venison and goose liver pate
4. Braised deer heart
5. Venison roast braesola (cured and air/dried meat)

The fall program on hunting will be a precursor to the second annual Locavore Lit Fest, March 29-April 1 2012, which will focus on wild foods, from plants to animals to bacteria.
