Overview

From field, forest, and stream to table, award-winning journalist Hank Shaw explores the forgotten art of foraging.

If there is a frontier beyond organic, local and seasonal, beyond farmers' markets and grass-def meat, it's hunting, fishing and foraging your own food. A lifelong angler and forager who became a hunter late in life, Hank Shaw is dedicated to finding a place on the table for the myriad overlooked and underutilized wild foods that are there for the taking -- if you know how to find them.

In Hunt, Gather, Cook, he shares his experiences both in the field and in the kitchen, as well as his extensive knowledge of North America's edible flora and fauna. Hank provides a user-friendly, food-oriented introduction to tracking down and cooking everything from prickly pears, to grouper to snowshoe hares.

Editorial Reviews

Sam Sifton
In Hunt, Gather, Cook, [Shaw] makes a powerful argument for joining him in a few of those pursuits, if only to become aware of the great bounty that surrounds us in the natural world, even when we live in urban environments—and perhaps particularly then.
—The New York Times
author of Charcuterie and Ratio: The Simple Co Michael Ruhlman

Hunt, Gather, Cook is a fabulous resource for anyone who wants to take more control over the food they eat and have more fun doing so. It's a complete reference on foraging, fishing, and hunting, with great recipes by a writer, outdoorsman, and cook with enormous passion.
From the Publisher

“Going to be stranded on an island and can bring only one item? Bring Hank with you! And if you can’t, then absolutely bring Hunt, Gather, Cook. That will ensure not only your survival but your survival with style and good gastronomy!” —Ariane Daguin, founder of specialty meat purveyor D’Artagnan

“In Hunt, Gather, Cook, [Shaw] makes a powerful argument for joining him in a few of those pursuits, if only to become aware of the great bounty that surrounds us in the natural world, even when we live in urban environments--and perhaps particularly then.” —The New York Times

“Most of us walk through our world and see water and land. Shaw sees a buffet ripe for the taking.” —Tampa Tribune

“More than a cookbook, though there are plenty of recipes, and more than a memoir, though the book is filled with personal stories, Hunt, Gather, Cook is an introduction to a different way of ‘doing' food.” —SimplyRecipes.com

“From recipes for homemade root beer and wild duck ragu to finding and picking nettles, the book is a paean to eating wild.” —Garden & Gun

“A deftly narrated story that has us considering doing a little more foraging, fishing, and sure, maybe even hunting, so that we can have an excuse to buy a salami fridge, too.” —LAWeekly.com

Ive had the privilege of attending a foraging walk with Hank and took along my, then 6yr old. This man really knows his stuff and within 20 feet of our meeting area, we had already found a meals woth of edible weeds! This book is wonderful and really shows just how amazing and sustaining our world is!
