The Lodge at Black Pearl on the Eastern Shore of Maryland has become as renowned for its extraordinary food as for its legendary waterfowl hunting. The chef delighting hunters, family, and friends is Vicky Mullaney, lodge manager and hunter herself, who can also cast a fly rod and butcher a deer. Along with her husband, she embraced the healthful benefits of raising five children in the sporting life in one of the country’s most beautiful and bountiful wilds. The momentum of the farm to table movement in the U.S. continues to entice people into the field and stream in search of their own wild meals. Encouraged by reducing food costs and eating lean meats that lack growth hormones and antibiotics, these new adventurers are enjoying fresh air and the abundance of nature. The Lodge at Black Pearl Cookbook offers an array of recipes and tips for both fresh game and seafood, along with plentiful and essential culinary creations for those who hunt in the grocery store. As Vicky writes in her introduction, “At the Black Pearl we celebrate life in the way we live, in what we teach, through the meals we share,” and the Mullaney family is grateful to share this celebration with you.
