    One thought on “Whatchagot Stew: A Memoir of an Idaho Childhood, with Recipes and Commentaries”

    1. A very fun book. If you are a fan of Patrick McManus, then you will love this book. This is an actual memoir and not just the outdoor tales of his other books. He talks about his childhood and his mother a lot. This book is co-written with his sister. He writes the memoir and she wrote, collected, and tested all the recipes. It is still filled with the wit and humor associated with his other books.Some of the recipes are good, standard, homey recipes you would expect from a family that hunts and [...]

    2. Synopsis: "A memoir complete with prepared and tested recipes from the authors' childhood. "Read the memoir first . . . (or) you might select one of my mother's recipes and foolishly believe that because the recipe is included in a cookbook, it must be something to eat".--Pat McManus"My Review: This was an interesting combination of memoir and cookbook. The memoir at the beginning is short and comical. The recipes are varied and I loved the commentary that was included with some of the recipes, [...]

    3. I'll honestly admit I'm flat out scared to try some of the recipes, but the stories and memories included are really neat. Like all of his stuff, it's hard to know where the "truth" really is but this is closer to an autobiography and an interesting set-up.

    4. I found this book very humorous for the most part. I would seriously consider using some of the wild game recipes. The ending was the sweetest part of the entire thing.

    5. I want to try some of these, especially the Vegetable casserole that starts with a half pound of bacon :)

    6. A mother who can make toast with milk a delight, no matter how often it meets the need for convenience and budget. Half of the book is memoir, growing up in rural Idaho and the other half recipes.
