Caribou Bourguignon

I have written about my hunting trip with my Dad to Canada before.  One thing that really stood out to me on the trip was the meals prepared by the camp chef.  She was the wife of our guide and they are both native to northern Canada.  This is a recipe that she prepared for us during our stay.  It was something that had been passed down through the generations and adapted as the years went on.  I am very inspired by the recipes of native hunters and huntresses.  I hope at some time in my life to explore and experience many more recipes like this one.
