In a day and age where knowing what you are eating is important, Field to Fare has become a popular concept. While upland bird hunters love the field pursuit of their quarry, most are equally enthusiastic about enjoying their harvest as a meal afterwards. Renown chef Jason Wilson of Fire and Vine Hospitality, esteemed winemaker Jean Francis Pellet of Pepper Bridge and Amavi wineries, and Steve Joyce from Red's Fly Shop, are teaming up to deliver this unique program that combines an educational outdoor adventure with an exceptional culinary experience.

2 options to attend:

Option 1:  The “Full Meal Deal” includes shooting and hunting field course, harvest preparation, cooking and wine class with Jason and JF, then the full wine dinner! 

Show up at 10 am and let the experienced instructors from Red’s teach you gun safety and shooting tips on the sporting clays course before following the pointing dogs afield in pursuit of Ringnecked Pheasants.  Each participant will have an opportunity to harvest and process their own birds in the field, then watch Chef Jason Wilson as he works his magic to transform them into gourmet masterpieces with wine support from Jean Francis Pellet.  This cooking class format portion of the course will take place in the main kitchen at Canyon River lodge, which is also where the wine dinner will take place afterwards.  Shotguns, ammo, and hunting preserve licenses are included.  Cost: $295 per person*.

Option 2:  Skip the Field part of it and get right to the Fare!  Appetizers begin at 5:30 pm, with the main course planned for 6:30 pm.  Chef Jason Wilson and Jean Francis Pellet will take you on a culinary journey that you won’t forget!  Cost: $125 per person*.
