Game Cooking Seminar Returning to Sportsman’s Classic

WATERBURY, VT -- If you are more successful in the field than in the kitchen, join the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department at the 17th Annual Yankee Sportsman's Classic in Essex Junction.

The department is once again sponsoring a cooking seminar at the classic to highlight the significance of game meat to Vermont’s rural heritage and the importance of game care in responsible hunting and fishing. Led by Chef Jimmy Kennedy, owner of River Run Restaurant in Plainfield, the seminar will focus on simple, yet elegant venison, waterfowl, perch and catfish recipes. However, all aspects of fish and game preparation will be fair game. The grill fires up on Saturday, January 17, at 2 pm.

“Game is healthy and delicious,” said Tom Decker, Chief of Operations, Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. “But the road to a delicious meal demands careful processing and preparation. We are thrilled to have a professional chef who has a working knowledge of wild game from Vermont.”

Chef Jimmy’s passion for game extends far past the kitchen at his regionally-recognized restaurant. He is a life-long hunter and angler, a former Congressional Liaison to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, a Let’s Go Fishing Instructor, and, when not preparing Southern specialties with a Yankee flair, a professional bass fisherman on the BASS and FLW circuits.

This seminar always proves very popular, so if you want a seat (and a sample), be ready when the doors open on at 2 pm.
