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.
Tried and true recipes scratched onto worn cards by family, along with a lot of concocting throughout my 27-year marriage, the beginning of which I’d often hear: “Honey, I love you very much, but this dinner sucks,” marked the beginning of my gourmet saga. Fast forward many determined years, feeding hoards of teenagers drug home nightly by my kids, throwing last-minute dinner parties with fantastic food, wine & presentation… and I’m the go-to for easy, healthy, excellent dinner and entertaining advice.
A stay-at-home mom (and moonlighting marketing expert), I pour my wine and cook for 2 hours every night I’m home… and I love love love it. But I’ve met too many busy and working parents and peeps over the years who are simply too exhausted to cook from scratch at the end of the day. And they don’t want to pay boatloads to have questionably sourced chicken shipped to their front door. So they hit the grocery deli to throw something together or spend money for takeout yet again.
You want family dinner to be yummy & easy, and to come from your kitchen. You want dinner to be healthy, with local fresh whole foods you pick up quickly at the local market. And, most importantly, you want to skip the learning curve, and be an enviable gourmet cook right now!

“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!
