Wild game dinner

I love fish dishes, but wild game is not high on my list of great food.

However I think the Wild Game Dinner given annually by Steve and Berry Glassell and Danny and Karen Logan is very slick. And Jeems Bayou Hunting & Fishing Club on Caddo Lake — a true throw back to yesterday — is so wonderfully Southern.

I wouldn’t miss it for almost anything. (Though, occasionally I do have to.)

And, wild game or not, we feasted ravenously on Craig Storer’s venison summer sausage. He is pictured arriving with wife Judy Storer who annually grows a great bed of lettuce in her Belcher garden.

The hosts asks guests to contribute their fave wild game or fish dish, side dish, salad or dessert. And there is plenty of wine to sip. (We contributed a salad and must admit that the ingredients came from Maxwell’s, but I tossed it all together.)

A sampling of high profilers and their dishes:

- Larry and Anne Higdon, Crawfish etouffee.

- Charles and Sheila Coyle, Old fashion pound cake, the kind mom used to make.

- Dr. Bill and Judy McColgan, Speckled belly goose gumbo. (Everyone was mentioning the new house they are building in the Dixie area.)

- The Rev. Bryan and Jennifer McDowell. Jennifer’s fab brownies.

- Dr. Rocky and Kristy Rockefeller. Rocky’s catfish supreme.

- Bubba Kneipp. Sausage jambalaya.

- Larry Theriot. Deer chili.

- Sonny Kirby. Boiled shrimp.

Soooo. You get the idea.

Do you have a favorite game dish? Please tell us about it.
