Join Me on a California Duck Hunt Weekend

You asked, I answered. I am teaming up with the California Waterfowl Association to host a weekend of duck hunting and duck cooking in California’s Delta this January. It’ll be hunts in different places, duck processing and cooking classes, and I’ll be cooking dinner.

Want to hunt with me and cook with me in South Texas? I’ll be hunting ducks and teaching a mini-cooking school at one of the best duck clubs in the Lone Star State this November.

Giving Thanks

I try to always stop and reflect on what I am thankful for each Thanksgiving, and this year is no different. It’s been a wild, crazy ride this year, and I owe much of it to you.

My Olympic Medal

I did it! I won the James Beard Award for Hunter Angler Gardener Cook! I am home from an amazing weekend that has left me reeling, As it sinks in, I realize that winning this award is as close as I’ll ever get to an Olympic medal.

Homecoming Night at Grange

Homecoming. More than 100 people came out to Grange in Sacramento last night for a special “Hunt, Gather, Cook” dinner. No pressure, right? Actually, no. Great food, great company. A great night.
