Details:Langdon Cook is an author, instructor, and lecturer on wild foods and the outdoors. We are pleased to Langdon Cookannounce that he will join MSSF on November 17th to present at our virtual general meeting.

He says “I’ll guide participants through four seasons of mushroom hunting and cooking on the West Coast, with slides of fungi in their natural habitat and on the table in finished dishes”.

 
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.”

He has been profiled in Bon Appetit, the Wall Street Journal Magazine, Whole Living, and Salon.com, and his writing appears in numerous magazines, newspapers, and online journals, including National Geographic TravelerEating WellOutside, Gray’s Sporting Journal, and Seattle Magazine, where he was a regular columnist for a decade. On-screen credits include the PBS TV series “Food Forward,” the Travel Channel’s “Trip Flip,” and the webcast “The Perennial Plate.” He has also been the recipient of grants and awards from Artist Trust, 4Culture, PEN Northwest, and the Bread Loaf Writing Conference.

A graduate of Middlebury College in Vermont (BA) and the University of Washington (MFA), Cook lives in Seattle with his wife, poet Martha Silano, and their two children.
