On a mission to help busy families eat delicious sustainable meats & veggies every night.
Spitfire Gourmet blends founder Holly George’s family health history and passion for gourmet cooking with her husband’s love of the land, hunting and fishing.
A 30-year marketing consultant and stay-at-home mom to her 3 kids, Holly dropped everything in 2009 and laser-focused on healing her then 11-year-old son, Tommy. After 2 years of cycling through missed sports and friend dates, misdiagnoses and specialists, Tommy finally had an answer: chronic lyme disease. The diagnosis marked the beginning of Holly and her family’s 2-year battle through naturopaths, lyme specialists, underground cures, and of course… the healthiest cooking ever.
This heightened mission for healthy cooking caused Holly to embrace her husband’s love for wild game hunting and fishing more than ever. She drew on her 5-generations of experience and rummaged through beloved recipe boxes to perfect everything from from her father-in-law’s Venison Stifado Greek Stew to her Great Gram’s Pheasant in Sherry Cream. Uncovering secrets and perfecting methods, she grew to love sipping her wine and cooking for hours.
As the “go-to” for the healthiest best dinners and entertaining, friends would ask for recipes. “Ummm… I’ll have to figure out the measurements and get back to you,” she’d reply. Holly realized that she had a wealth of knowledge and shortcuts to share, so in 2019 she started Spitfire Gourmet.
Spitfire Gourmet consists of Holly’s 5-generation recipes made easily with her three pre-mixed seasoning packets, each with whole spices and ingredients to support a variety of healthy game dishes from one-dish dinners to soups, salads, pastas and sides.
Holly’s recipes are color-coded with her seasoning packets, making cooking hassle-free and easy. Plus her seasonings are free from MSG and most GMO’s and allergens, with compostable packaging.
Now everyone can throw away the learning curve and cook the best cuts of meat, wild game and whole foods like the pros.
I don’t hunt or fish. I didn’t grow up eating wild game. And I’m not the “roughing it” type.
But my husband and boys are. I absolutely love the feeling I get from feeding my family their healthy kill and catch. Even better is hanging with the boys at hunting camp for a night, curling up in front of the fireplace after another fucking amazing meal that we all cook together.
Not everyone hunts, fishes, or has a cabin deep in the woods. But now more than ever, I want everyone to know what salt-of-the-earth tastes and feels like… every night.

“I’ve been a gourmet cook for years. I made your Chic Chick cheese sauce with roasted pheasant and spiral zucchini. The sauce was perfect – didn’t need a thing. As much as I love to ‘put my signature on dishes’ there really was nothing I needed to add to make it better!
