JT’s connection to nature was fully realized as soon as he was old enough to cover himself in dirt. He has spent over six weeks of his life living off of exclusively wild foods and loves plants. JT is very proudly the progeny of a long line of artisanal grandmother/cooks going back into Mesoamerica and Spain. He also has a deep respect of traditional cultures and is constantly engaging his curiosity in this subject, as is said in Irish “Aoibhinn beatha an scoláire” – beautiful is the life of the scholar.

Teaching: 

Cooking with Wild Foods

Explore the delicious, fragrant and storied California landscape by learning to identify edible, utilitarian and poisonous species. Students will become acquainted with much of the local flora of the area and learn traditional recipes which highlight the connections between cuisine, culture, history, natural living skills, and stewardship. Class will include cooking.
