Publisher Comments:

* Features more than 60 recipes from some of the Pacific Coast's best chefs, including David Tanis, Maria Hines, Dustin Clark, Kirsten Dixon, and Tom Douglas
* Accessible and inspiring, Pacific Feast will appeal to home cooks and nature lovers alike
* Conveys a strong conservation and sustainability message throughout the recipes and stories
Once thought to be the stuff of back-to-the-landers, foraging has become a gourmet pastime, and there are a growing number of wild-food classes in which experts teach hungry folks how to spot the "food at our feet." Especially fortunate are those of us who live along the Pacific Coast — from Southern California to Puget Sound to Anchorage — where the climate provides many a delicacy in our wild (and not so wild) spaces. Pacific Feast shares expert advice on how to identify the good eats, harvest responsibly, and create delicious meals with your finds. Author Jennifer Hahn provides detailed field notes on more than 40 species, including where to find them, which parts are edible, and their best culinary uses. In addition to the delectable recipes from well-known coastal chefs, readers will also appreciate Hahn's intimate stories of reveling in nature's bounty and Mac Smith's lush identification photographs.

Review:

"Whether it's for mushrooms or juniper berries, naturalist and wilderness guide Jennifer Hahn shows people how to forage responsibly and then turn their finds into delicious meals." Ashland Daily Tidings

Synopsis:

Hahn presents an intimate yet informative guide to harvesting and cooking wild foods, from beach to forest. She provides detailed field notes on more than 40 species, including where to find them, which parts are edible, and their best culinary uses.

About the Author

With more than 25 years of wilderness travel under her boots and kayak hull, writer Jennifer Hahn relies on wild harvesting to keep her pack and kayak light. Her first book, Spirited Waters: Soloing South Through the Inside Passage, won the Barbara Savage "Miles From Nowhere" award for adventure narrative writing in 2001. Currently she is an adjunct professor at Western Washington University's Fairhaven College teaching courses on northwest wild food.
