Ontario COs serve up a new wild fish and game cookbook


There are plenty of wild fish and game recipe books out there, to be sure, but this new offering from the Ontario Conservation Officer’s Association aims to also give something back. How so? Proceeds from sales of the $20 cookbook will go toward the non-profit association’s various good works, from outdoors programs for kids to college bursaries to youth trapping awards. Think of it as cooking for the outdoorsmen and women of tomorrow.

The new Ontario Conservation Officer’s Association Cookbook is actually the second edition of the original cookbook first published in the group’s centennial year of 1992. As with that first edition, the new cookbook features favourite recipes from association members and their families. In all, the full-colour, 184-page edition features 352 recipes, complete with the stories behind the various dishes.


The Ontario Conservation Officer’s Association includes active and retired COs and other natural resources law enforcement officers in Ontario; the cookbook represents the group’s major fundraising initiative. Please contact Tim Rochette at to place orders.
