As has been our theme this winter, we once again are featuring one of our talented members of PSMS. To help kick of our Spring Foraging season, this month's general meeting
will feature award-winning author and wild foods instructor Langdon Cook for a virtual field trip in search of local spring bounty. In this "patch to plate" slideshow,
Langdon will highlight some of the Pacific Northwest's most prized wild edibles, where to find such elusive ingredients, and how to prepare them in delicious meals. Slides of
plants and fungi both in their habitat and in finished dishes will have you reaching for your boots, baskets, and saute pans. Langdon has agreed to bring some of his books
along for sale so Q&A and book signing will follow his presentation.
Langdon Cook is a writer, instructor, and lecturer on wild foods and the outdoors. His books include Upstream: Searching for Wild Salmon, from River to Table (Ballantine, May 2017),
a finalist for the Washington State Book Award, The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America, winner of the 2014 Pacific Northwest Book Award, and Fat of the
Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager, which The Seattle Times called "lyrical, practical and quixotic." Cook's work has been nominated for two James Beard Awards, a
Society for Environmental Journalists award, and a Pushcart Prize. He has been profiled in Bon Appetit, WSJ magazine, Whole Living, and Salon.com, and his writing appears in
numerous magazines, newspapers, and online journals, including National Geographic Travel, Outside, Eating Well, Gray's Sporting Journal, and Seattle Magazine, where he was a
regular columnist for a decade. Cook lives in Seattle with his wife and two children.
