Yay! We finally have events, after a year long absence, for obvious reasons. I will be hitting the road as best I can this year to support my latest cookbook, Hook, Line, and Supper, which covers all things fish and seafood, freshwater and salt. It is schedule for release the first week of May.
Beer and BBQ at Urban Roots
I will be kicking off the live book tour at home here in Sacramento, at the Urban Roots Smokehouse and Brewery! This will be an outdoor event, and we are cooking up a special of some smoked fish and seafood, a book and a beer for everyone to enjoy! If you are not familiar with Urban Roots, it has some of the best beer in the area! This is a come as you are event, no tickets, but we are planning on collecting RSVPs to know about how much food to prepare.
Also, since this will be an early in the year event, with Covid, we are likely still going to be all masked up and such. We will play it by ear and do what we need to do to keep everyone safe!
Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Rendezvous
Looks like I will be going to the BHA Rendezvous this June! First time back there since, I dunno, maybe 2016? The plans are to do a edible plants walk, a cooking demo (think Mexican + backcountry + fish), and of course I will judging (harshly) the Wild Game Cookoff. Oh, and drinking beer. Lots of beer. Stay tuned for more details.
Book Signing at Fool’s Errand
Getting back together with the Two Dans, of Dan Dan and Hinterland fame, for another book event, this time at their brand new restaurant Fool’s Errand. The format is TBD, but it will be either a full book dinner or something more casual. Details to come.
Fish Fry at the Fermentorium
Woo hoo! This is the first book event I scheduled for Hook, Line, and Supper! We will be doing an outdoor fish fry with The Fermentorium, a craft brewery and ale house just north of Milwaukee. Details are TBD, but save the date!
Birmingham Book Dinner
What better place to hold a fish and seafood celebration than the Hot & Hot Fish Club in Birmingham? My friend, the great Chef Chris Hastings, and I will be back together to cook up a fantastic meal for everyone, based off the book. Details are TBD, but I’ll update this when I have more details.

Details are TBD, but save the date!
