Raising Strong Children

“If you shoot it, you eat it” is a family rule (her children all learned how to duck hunt from their father), and what’s in season drives what goes on the plate.

Mullaney says her culinary philosophy revolves around her family philosophy, which includes the notion that mealtimes play an integral part in raising strong children and building great friendships. “Cooking for those we love is an act of love. The kids understand that. Your friends appreciate that,” Mullaney says.



Without Hesitation

“As a sporting artist who has traveled extensively, seen some of the world’s great shooting and fishing lodges, and been served some amazing meals there, I can say without hesitation that a meal at Vicky Mullaney’s table at The Lodge at Black Pearl is as good as any of them and better than most. From the appetizers that materialize from her kitchen the moment you come in from shooting to the dinners that come later, to the delicious and innovative breakfasts the next morning, her meals are always creative, attractive, delicious, and something to look forward to.”

Food Family and Friendship

""I don't know how it could have been better.  It was fantastic food, fun, fowl, FOOD, family, friendship, fog, firelight, friends, football and even more food.  Thanks so much for your warm hospitality and especially for letting us be part of your family "

“The venue was magical.  The experience unparalleled.  The fun of superb food, good new and old friends, and the outdoors - with the best duck experience anywhere - it was otherworldly."
