Tidepools capture me like nothing else, and I am certain I am not the only one who has carried this fascination well into middle age. Tidepools capture us because they are a microcosm of life: A world in a puddle. And, as it happens, an edible world.
Marinated mushrooms are a staple on any antipasti plate, and if you can get porcini, which are popping in the Rockies now, so much the better. Here’s how to do the technique the Italians call sott’olio.

Here it is, my first beer recipe on Hunter Angler Gardener Cook. As you might expect, it’s an offbeat beer called a gose, which is a light, tart and slightly salty beer from northern Germany. My version uses foraged juniper, backyard lemon rind and handmade sea salt.
On this episode of the Hunt Gather Talk podcast, I get together with my Southern California doppelganger, Pascal Baudar of Los Angeles. Pascal is a wizard with wild plants and we spend an hour geeking out on all sorts of cool stuff.
A Scandinavian take on fish chowder, this recipe uses a variety of fish and seafood, although any firm fish will work, along with a cool, optional ingredient: whey. Whey adds a bright tartness to the broth. This is such a great soup you’ll want to give it a go.
