Hank Shaw is a cook, a hunter, angler, forager and wild foods expert constantly on the lookout for new things to catch and eat. Although he has caught fish and foraged since he could walk, Hank is an "adult onset" hunter who did not pick up a shotgun until 2002; he's never looked back. Hank and his partner Holly Heyser -- avid duck hunters -- now hunt or fish for all the meat they eat at home, and foraged foods form a daily part of their diet.
Hank runs the wild foods blog Hunter Angler Gardener Cook (www.honest-food.net), which won the James Beard Award for Best Blog in 2013. He won the International Association of Culinary Professionals award for Best Blog in 2010 and 2011, and his work was featured in the book Best Food Writing 2012.
Shaw's magazine writing has appeared in Food & Wine, Organic Gardening, Field & Stream, as well as many other publications. He lives near Sacramento, CA.
