Cooking Wine and Travel

Introduction To Our Travel Section

I love to travel. It's probably because I was raised in the back of a station wagon. My father was a school teacher and every summer we would load up the family station wagon and hit the road. We traveled across the country, sleeping in tents and living in campgrounds. By the time I was 15, I had visited every state in the continental United States and hiked and canoed through the backcountry of every major national park.

My parents were avid naturalists who taught us how to live off the land. During these summer trips, we hunted and fished for most of our meals and harvested wild fruits and vegetables from the forests. My mother´s favorite book was "Stalking the Wild Asparagus" by Euell Gibbons. This was the comprehensive guidebook for foraging for food in the wild. I guess this is where I earned my appreciation for fresh ingredients.
