after the party…the field report


This was one of the toughest menus we’ve ever attempted to develop. There are so many different directions you can take when you’re working with wild game meat that we spent a lot of long contemplative moment staring off toward Sonora. After slowly whittling our options down, we finally knocked one out of the park; our best, most completely delicious menu we’ve ever penned. Alligator Queso with fresh fried totopos. Alligator was surprisingly hard to find. We finally scored some from Quality Seafood but damn it it was pricey.

Wild Antelope Chili Texas Red-style. We got a big shipment of antelope meat and antelope bones (for stock) This is a genuine Texas Red, damn near impossible to find in Austin these days. Nothing but antelope meat, antelope stock, ground chiles, masa and garlic. It will be available Frito Pie -style for no upcharge. This is Texas damnit!

Braised Wild Boar Hog. After a multi-day brine (a la Michael Ruhlman) we’re going to slow braise this beast in a bath of pork stock, garlic, Texas sweet onions, shallot, and white wine.
