We are not nerdy chefs sitting all day in front of the computer and creating designs for other creative chefs. Sometimes we have the chance to get out on the field and feel the heat of events so we never forget where we come from and see what customer wants.

This event was organized by PURSUIT, a company that is dedicated to bringing hunters and fishermen together for events like this. I had the privilege of working with them to butcher a wild boar that had been hunted down just a day before. We prepared Wild Boar Sliders, Wild Boar Gulash, and Steaks on a wood fire grill. You can top that. My family used to go on these types of hunting adventures and I remember my father always coming up with the most fantastic dishes. So, this event really brought back some great memories for me. I am so glad that we could share this experience with the group and I hope that they had as much fun as we did! Thank you so much Pursuits offer unique hunting and fishing experiences with professional equipment and guides. Whether you're looking for a weekend getaway or a longer trip, they can help you plan the perfect outing. PURSUITS offers a variety of packages, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. And if you ever have the chance to go hunting, I encourage you to do so. It is an experience that everyone should have at least once in their life.

Happy hunting!
