Hank Shaw

I write. I fish. I dig earth, forage widely, live for food and hunt wild animals. I think daily about new ways to cook and eat anything that walks, flies, swims, crawls, skitters, jumps – or grows. Who the hell am I? I am a former line cook, I’ve caught fish and dug clams for a living and, after 18 years as a political reporter, I now pay the bills writing and catering around Northern California. My work has been published in, among other places, Food & Wine, Field & Stream, The Art of Eating and Gastronomica, and my first book, "Honest Food: Finding the Forgotten Feast," is scheduled for a spring 2011 release with Rodale Press.
