Hank Shaw — author, hunter and James Beard Award-winning blogger — will be at The Avid Reader at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, to discuss his new cookbook, “Duck, Duck, Goose.” The bookstore is at 617 Second St. in downtown Davis.

Duck is having a renaissance in American restaurants and kitchens as cooks discover that diverse breeds, species and cuts of meat offer an exciting range of flavors and textures. Many cooks — and even hunters — have a fear of cooking fowl. “Duck, Duck, Goose” shows readers how to cook duck and goose like a pro: perfectly crisp skin crackling with each bite, succulent confit, impeccable prosciutto and more.

Shaw, an award-winning food writer, hunter, and cook on the forefront of the marsh-to-table revolution, provides all readers need to know about obtaining, cleaning and cooking these flavorful birds. “Duck, Duck, Goose” includes detailed guides on species and breeds, selecting a duck in the market and plucking and hanging a wild bird.

Shaw’s recipes include basics such as Grilled Duck Breast and Slow-Roasted Duck; international favorites like Duck Pho, Sichuan Fragrant Duck, Mexican Duck with Green Mole, and Cassoulet; and celebration-worthy fare such as Perfect Roast Goose.

It also features an array of duck and goose confit and charcuterie, from fresh sausages to dry-cured salami.

The most comprehensive guide to preparing and cooking both domestic and wild ducks and geese, “Duck, Duck, Goose” will be a treasured companion for anyone who wants to free themselves from the tyranny of chicken and enjoy perfectly cooked waterfowl.

Shaw is the author of the book “Hunt, Gather, Cook” and the blog “Hunter Angler Gardener Cook,” which won the James Beard Award for Best Blog in 2013 and the International Association of Culinary Professionals’ Best Food Blog award in 2010 and 2011.

He has been featured on the Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods” and his work has appeared in Food & Wine, Organic Gardening, Field & Stream and the Art of Eating, as well as in hunting and conservation magazines such as Delta Waterfowl, California Waterfowl Magazine and Pheasants Forever.

He lives in the Sacramento area. Learn more at www.honest-food.net.
