Last week, Hubby and I traveled to Unity to the 7th Annual Sportsmen's Conference and Game Dinner and met up with Robin and her family. The dinner raises money for local non-profits and serves game that is usually donated by local hunters, game wardens who take animals that have been poached and the members of the Unity College community. We had everything from elk and bear to togue and beaver. And if you were lucky enough to get tickets to this yearly sold out event, then you were able to enjoy a 5 course meal in addition to the yummy appetizers.
Dinner was a 5 course meal! While I would have liked something like a side salad and dinner rolls and a full pitcher of water on the table, so I wouldn't have had to flag someone down when I wanted more water, the food was good. Here is my breakdown:
Dish 1: Axis Deer Pie -
Dish 2: Goose and Wild Hog in phyllo dough with mixed greens -
Dish 3: Venison Ugandan Meatballs -
Dish 4: Venison Stroganoff with Crimini Mushrooms over crostini -
Dish 5: Venison Cutlets in a white wine reduction, roasted red potatoes and carrots -
To all of you hunters out there - what other meat should I try?
The non-profits that were the recipients of this year's event were:
Maine Operation Game Thief
Maine Warden Service Association - in memory of Mjr. Gregg Sanborn
