Wild foods expert Hank Shaw has a new cookbook out called “Duck, Duck, Goose: Recipes and Techniques for Cooking Ducks and Geese, Both Wild and Domesticated”.

He’s also the author of “Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast”, and he runs a website for those interested in wild game dining called “Hunter, Angler, Gardener, Cook”.

Shaw has been an angler and a forager his entire life. A friend lured him into hunting 11 years ago by giving him mallards and pheasants. A chef, he wanted to learn more about cooking and eating them.
