photo (68) Like many of us who love to cook, Cheffy has amassed quite a large collection of "favorite" cookbooks. Arguably none is so well-loved as his 1943 edition of Irma Rombauer's Joy of Cooking (we had to get extra-special permission to use it for this post). If the specific edition doesn't ring a bell, you might start by comparing your own copy to the original: there have been many, many changes to Joy over the years. One reason this early version's a go-to in Besaw's kitchen - its fantastic chapter, "America was Built on Game."

In our continued effort to support sustainable farming practices at Besaw's, Cheffy is partnering with our friends at Nicky USA to create some exciting options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our Elk Burger at dinner has been a fantastic success, and we've been ramping up our repertoire with special menu items featuring duck, goat, buffalo, venison, elk & pheasant.
