Read an Excerpt

I go into the wild to still the noise inside my mind. I feel as if I’ve come alive when pockets of evergreen perfume drift inside my nose and the soft murmur of creeks trickle into my ears. Being outdoors heightens the senses in every way, cultivating an ideal mind-set for cooking.
