The Game Chef : Wild Recipes from the Great Outdoors
The Game Chef: Wild Recipes from the Great Outdoors, the companion to the TV series, features real food sourced in natural, healthy environments, cooked for enjoyment and well-being. Successful restaurateur Angelo Georgalli has created a selection of his favourite recipes that are nutritious, delicious and naturally sourced. The Game Chef features recipes for fish, pork, venison, lamb and rabbit, as well as salads, sauces, dressing, soups, stews and accompaniments. These easy-to-prepare dishes are shot in the beautiful Lake Wanaka region. They celebrate balance with nature, living off the land as much as possible, and respecting the wildlife, the vegetation, and the waterways that sustain us. The Game Chef takes a back to basics approach, with organic produce and seasonal cooking at its best.

About Angelo Georgalli
After travelling the world, Angelo arrived in New Zealand in 1996, buying his first cafe in Auckland on Dominion Road. Since then he has run seven successful deli cafes in New Zealand before settling in the beautiful Wanaka region to follow his passion for living a healthy, honest life off the land. Born to an Italian mother and a Cypriot chef father, food has been a significant part of Angelo's life since he was a boy. He loves cooking, and he also has a passion for fishing, archery, hunting and getting into the great outdoors. It stands to reason that these two great loves would cumulate in The Game Chef. From watching his mother cooking and baking from scratch in their kitchen to fishing English rivers with his father. From learning and competing internationally in archery, these life experiences have led him to become The Game Chef.
