Afield coverWe have so much coming up on Great Taste in the next week so take a look at this blog post for all the particulars.  First, this week LIVE at Hy-Vee our guest via the phone from Austin is Chef Jesse Griffiths, author of the just-published book Afield:  A Chef's Guide to Preparing and Cooking Wild Game and Fish.  Jesse is an expert on sourcing and utilizing local foods, preserving items and following the "food" seasons, how to utilize wild game, foraged items, and fish, and something that has piqued my attention-using the internet to forage.

He and his life partner, Tamara Mayfield, have a supper club called Dai Due that pops up in various locations in and around Austin, a butcher shop selling items at Farmer's Markets, and the New School of Traditional Cookery where Jesse offers workshops on hunting and fishing.
