The Best Meat
This is going to be more of a controversial post about eating out. Most people won’t agree with me. Most people will get mad. They will most likely say, “Dude, you like steak and that is your thing”. But the thing is, if you haven’t tried pheasant meat or pheasant stew, you are definitely missing out on some cuisine that is totally worth exploring.
I was once exposed to this special bird back in 1998 when my mother was struggling to get a foothold in culinary school My dad and I used to hunt them all the time and one day he brought back a bird that was not your typical blue bird. He told my mother that he had been tracking it down for weeks and finally was able to get it. My mother cooked it up for a school project and she got an A in the class and was recommended to the top notch restaurants in New York, where she resides today. But she owed it all to those tender looking and supple pheasants that my dad brought home every once in awhile.
The New Stew
Every since then, my mother had a growing and strong demand for pheasants and even game birds in general to be involved in her cooking processes. Her best dish was bird stew. Since she developed a knack for those type of dishes, she needed a supplier, and that supplier was Sesen Farm. They have a whole selection of different birds and can even place a mail order for you. You can find them at their website.
Ever since that day I taste tested my mother’s stew, I never went back. That is the most delicious tasting bird around. Every time I visit a restaurant and see it on the menu, which is rare, I order it straight away. The best part is that it is not even an acquired taste. Be sure to check them out and give them a good review.
