A comprehensive, lushly illustrated cookbook devoted to preparing and cooking upland birds and small game, both wild and domesticated, from the author of the award-winning website Hunter Angler Gardener Cook.

Game birds have always held a high place at the table, whether it's a hunter's prize of roast grouse or the turkey we all eat at Thanksgiving. Pheasants, quail, rabbits, doves, grouse and more - these are singular species with grand culinary traditions that offer the cook an unmatched range of flavors. Many cooks fear the fowl, however. Lean and athletic, game birds, rabbits and hares can dry out in a hurry. 
Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail shows you how to cook small game like a pro: perfectly crisp skin over tender breast meat, melt-in-your-mouth braises and confit, stews, sausages, and more.

Hank Shaw provides all you need to know about obtaining, cleaning, and cooking birds ranging from quail to pheasant, turkey to dove and beyond. You'll find detailed information on how best to treat these various species in the kitchen, how to select them in the market, as well as how to pluck, clean and hang wild birds. 

Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail won the International Association of Culinary Professionals for Best Self-Published Book in 2019.

Being in the outdoors and hunting my own food is a big part of my life. Hank Shaw and Holly Heyser have written another superb book sharing that same passion, this time for upland birds and small game. The learning is deep, the recipes are superb and next to being in the field with Hank and Holly, this is the best way to enjoy a long walk looking for a great meal. If you love food, real food, this book belongs in your kitchen!
