Vermont hotel to serve $75 roadkill-inspired menu


Hotel Vermont will offer a "Wild About Vermont" event on Nov. 7 that will feature a game supper, with donations from hunters and fishermen in the state.

The game supper will include fish, deer, bear, moose, muskrat and other roadkill. You read right: They'll serve roadkill.

Vermont Fish and Wildlife will supply three animals that were injured or killed on roads and highways for the meal.

“The idea is to get people connected to their local food sources, but also to showcase the traditions of Vermont,” Chef Doug Paine told WPTZ.

The supper will cost $75, and proceeds from the dinner will go to Vermont Fish and Wildlife. 

"Vermont's quirky. Let's keep it that way," Kate Paine told WPTZ.

Chef Paine says it will be delicious and well worth trying.

There are about 20 other dishes that get put on a table or a counter or that stay warming on the stove that I’d rather eat than turkey. But every year, there the turkey is. And every year, I fork some into a valley I built for it amid hillocks...
