April 8, 2015 @ AMC Monthly Meeting

Our speaker this month is Langdon Cook. His presentation, “Call of the Wild: Living & Working on the Mushroom Trail”, will focus on the pickers, buyers, and chefs who make the wild mushroom economy the biggest all-cash business in North America.

Langdon Cook is a writer, instructor, and lecturer on wild foods and the outdoors. His books include The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America (Ballantine, September 2013), winner of the 2014 Pacific Northwest Book Award, and Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager (Mountaineers, 2009), which the Seattle Times called “lyrical, practical and quixotic.” He has been profiled in Bon Appetit, WSJ magazine, Whole Living, and, and his writing has appeared in numerous magazines, newspapers, and online journals, including Terrain, Gray’s Sporting Journal, Outside, The Stranger, and Seattle Magazine, where he is a regular columnist. On-screen credits include the PBS TV series “Food Forward” and the Travel Channel’s “Trip Flip,” and he has been the recipient of grants and awards from Artist Trust, 4Culture, PEN Northwest, and the Bread Loaf Writing Conference.
