Vandy Cooks: Learn to cook wild game Oct. 14

Melinda Mahoney

Vandy Cooks is calling all hunters, anglers, adventurers and foodies to join registered dietitian Melinda Mahoney in the kitchen for some wild game cooking Wednesday, Oct. 14, from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center Demonstration Kitchen. “Vandy Cooks: Cooking on the Wild Side” is presented by the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center and Health Plus.

Embrace your wild side as you try new foods, swap stories and celebrate the outdoors with delicious food. Learn techniques from the field to the table that will help you produce mouthwatering creations. This event is for anyone who enjoys food, not just the avid outdoorsman. Everyone will leave with food-preparation tips that can be applied to any type of meat, as well as recipes and samples of dishes prepared. Feel free to wear camouflage and bring pictures of your trophy game!

This event is open to the Vanderbilt community.
