Agency wants recipes

— HARRISBURG, Pa. — What’s cookin’ in your camp?

Are your sherried doves to die for? Does your venison pot roast define “good eating?” Do others always rave about your sweet-and-sour pheasant?

The Pennsylvania Game Commission wants to know.

Wild-game recipes are being collected and considered for inclusion in a new edition of the Pennsylvania Game Cookbook.

The cookbook, which was last printed in 1979, is being brought back by popular demand, said Lori Mitchell, who heads up the commission’s Public Information & Media Services Division.

“Quite often we get phone calls and letters from people asking if we still sell our cookbook,” Mitchell said.

“As more years pass there seems to be more and more interest, too, so we decided to bring back the cookbook, and make it better than ever,” she said.

The deadline for submissions is June 30.

All submissions should include the recipe title, the ingredients and measurements, preparation instructions, the number of servings, and the name or initials of the person submitting the recipe, as well as his or her hometown.

Recipes can be emailed to, or mailed to the Pa. Game Commission, 2001 Elmerton Ave., Harrisburg, PA 17110.
