About the Writers
Langdon Cook is the author of The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America, winner of the 2014 Pacific Northwest Book Award, and Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager, which the Seattle Times called “lyrical, practical and quixotic.” His writing appears in numerous publications, and he has been profiled in Bon Appetit, Outside,, and the PBS TV series Food Forward. Cook lives in Seattle with his wife and two children.

Sara Dickerman writes about food and travel, and her work has appeared in Bon Appétit, The New York Times, Saveur, Sunset, Seattle Magazine, and Slate (where her writing won a James Beard award). Her first cookbook, Bon Appétit’s Food Lover’s Cleanse, will be published this December. She likes to spend free time swimming above the oysters in the Puget Sound.

Renee Erickson co-owns The Walrus and the Carpenter, The Whale Wins, Bar Melusine, Bateau, and General Porpoise Doughnuts. She also owned Seattle’s Boat Street Café for 18 years and launched Boat Street Pickles as an offshoot of that venture. Erickson is dedicated to providing the best, fresh, local, foraged, and farmed organic ingredients in all her dishes and sources them from a growing community of food providers. She has been a semi-finalist for the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Northwest for the last two consecutive years.

Corina Zappia is the nonfiction editor at Pacifica Review, a former staff writer for the Village Voice, and an MFA graduate of the Bennington Writing Seminars. As a journalist, she has written about art collectives that throw tea parties in the Hudson River for Dazed and Confused, covered Geek Girl Con for the Hairpin, and reviewed vacuum cleaners for Time Out New York. Her heating ducts will never know that special clean again. Her personal essays have appeared in the Awl, Nerve, the Morning News, and Gastronomica.
