CLICK HERE to download a sample recipe from Pacific Feast * Features more than 60 recipes from some of the Pacific Coast's best chefs, including David Tanis, Maria Hines, Dustin Clark, Kirsten Dixon, and Tom Douglas * Accessible and inspiring, Pacific Feast will appeal to home cooks and nature lovers alike * Conveys a strong conservation and sustainability message throughout the recipes and stories Once thought to be the stuff of back-to-the-landers, foraging has become a gourmet pastime, and there are a growing number of wild-food classes in which experts teach hungry folks how to spot the "food at our feet." Especially fortunate are those of us who live along the Pacific Coast -- from Southern California to Puget Sound to Anchorage -- where the climate provides many a delicacy in our wild (and not so wild) spaces. Pacific Feast shares expert advice on how to identify the good eats, harvest responsibly, and create delicious meals with your finds. Author Jennifer Hahn provides detailed field notes on more than 40 species, including where to find them, which parts are edible, and their best culinary uses. In addition to the delectable recipes from well-known coastal chefs, readers will also appreciate Hahn's intimate stories of reveling in nature's bounty and Mac Smith's lush identification photographs. With more than 25 years of wilderness travel under her boots and kayak hull--including thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from northern California to Canada and kayaking solo from Ketchikan, Alaska to Washington--writer Jennifer Hahn relies on wild harvesting to keep her pack and kayak light. Jennifer's favorite foraged lunch is sea urchin, nori seaweed, and "goose tongue" leaves. She lives in Bellingham, Washington with her potter husband, Chris Moench.

A Beginner’s Guide to Disaster Survival Food Procurement - Finding the Best Animal Food Sources Table of Contents Introduction The psychological Aspects of Leadership Food and Water Learning How to Eat Unexpected Food Items Insects as Potential Food Sources Catching Grasshoppers Earthworms Snakes Other Reptiles and Amphibians Living off Crustaceans How to Make a Shrimping/Fishing Net Fish Making Fish Traps Collecting Mollusks Precautions – Collecting Amphibians Eating birds Mammals as a food source Conclusion Author Bio- Introduction Survival, – especially in adverse conditions, when you have suddenly been faced with natural or man-made disaster, – is based on a particular mindset. You may have read about people who have managed to get through and survive disaster and catastrophes, which are potentially life-threatening. On the other hand, there have been people who went through extensive survival training, and still could not manage to use their particular skills effectively and beneficiary in order to survive. So, even though the latter had the requisite knowledge and skills, what made them fail, when other lesser trained people succeeded? That is the will to survive. I know about an Army officer who brought his group of seven men through an enemy ridden territory after 31 days of harrowing mental, physical and psychological trauma. It was not his army training, which brought him and his responsibility back to base safely. It was also not their knowledge, about how to get food, save themselves from the enemy, make fire, make or take shelter in the best place available, and other factors which could make all the difference between life and death.

Perfect for fans of Kitty Neale and Josephine Cox. 'Rita Bradshaw fully deserves her new Cookson rating... Josie's tale will echo in your heart long after you have turned the last page' - Northern Echo The approach of the twentieth century means little to Josie Burns and her family; living in Sunderland's slum area, they battle dirt, cold and hunger on a daily basis. Josie's brothers and sisters are terrified of their violent alcoholic father, but Josie is not like the rest, for she has something that will enable her to rise out of the slums: a beautiful singing voice, with which even as a child she earns enough pennies to keep her father happy.

By educating herself and taking singing lessons, Josie starts on the journey to success and security - but can she also find love?

"[Ian Purkayastha] has a true, deep expertise in everything he sells--caviar, truffles, fish. He knows the stories that we need to sell the stuff tableside . . . he can disrupt the entire luxury foods market." ---From the Foreword by David Chang Ian Purkayastha is New York City's leading truffle importer and boasts a devoted clientele of top chefs nationwide, including Jean-Georges Vongerichten, David Chang, Sean Brock, and David Bouley. But before he was purveying the world's most expensive fungus to the country's most esteemed chefs, Ian was just a food-obsessed teenager in rural Arkansas -- a misfit with a peculiar fascination for rare and exotic ingredients. The son of an Indian immigrant father and a Texan mother, Ian learned to forage for wild mushrooms from an uncle in the Ozark hills. Thus began a single-track fixation that led him to learn about the prized but elusive truffle, the king of all fungi. His first taste of truffle at age 15 sparked his improbable yet remarkable adventure through the strange -- and often corrupt -- business of the exotic food trade. Rife with tales from the hidden underbelly of the elite restaurant scene, Truffle Boy chronicles Ian's high stakes dealings with a truffle kingpin in Serbia, meth-head foragers in Oregon, crooked businessmen and maniacal chefs in Manhattan, gypsy truffle hunters in the forests of Hungary, and a supreme adventure to find "Gucci mushrooms" in the Himalayan foothills -- the land of the gods. He endures harsh failures along the way but rebuilds with tremendous success by selling not just truffles but also caviar, wild mushrooms, rare foraged edibles, Wagyu beef, and other nearly unobtainable ingredients demanded by his Michelin-starred clients. Truffle Boy is a thrilling coming-of-age story and the incredible but true tale of a country kid who grows up to become a force in the world of fine dining.
