'Tis the season for wild game at the Rookery. Of course "wild" is just a slight embellishment, as neither the DNR nor county health department would be all too pleased if we actually went out to harvest wild game ourselves. So we need to rely instead on specialty game farm suppliers. Still, you get the general idea.
And to kick off our autumnal Wild Thing special Chef Tim is putting a delicious spin on pheasant. Featuring lingonberries, also known as mountain cranberries in Scandinavia, where they're much used in cooking.
It's all part of the temporary suspension of our Fresh Fish UN-Fry during this quieter time of year here in Cable.
Yet if you happened to miss our final fresh fish special last weekend you still have another chance. Because we flash froze a few leftover portions of ahi tuna. So this weekend we're also offering a bonus "Fresh-Frozen" Fish UN-Fry. Ahi tuna, sesame encrusted and pan seared in a ginger soy glaze, served on a bed of blended rice, with a wasabi avocado lime cucumber sauce. Same recipe as last weekend. But at a special fresh frozen price.
Stay tuned for more new autumn menu items coming soon!
