My book of the moment is The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan, and on the bus this morning I finally reached what may be the most exciting of the three sections: foraging.
I've only just started reading the foraging part, but I'm looking forward to reading about Pollan's attempts at mushroom gathering and boar hunting.
What got me excited: Angelo Garro is the person who teaches Michael Pollan about foraging!
I first heard of Angelo Garro through an NPR segment produced by the Kitchen Sisters about hidden kitchens, during which they "join Garro along the coast of Northern California as he follows the seasons, harvesting the wild for his kitchen and his friends." One of the hosts gets invited to a meal at his forge (he's a blacksmith as well), and "everything was handmade by Angelo: the salami, the prosciutto, the pasta, the ragu, the olives, the wine, even the candlesticks."
Listen to the audio of the fantastic NPR segment here. (If you're just planning to read the text, don't bother! Radio is all about listening, and the segment is worth taking a second to turn your speakers on and listen.)
