Schuyler Ingle - Cooking
Cookbook author Schuyler Ingle is a Pacific Northwest native who knows and appreciates the ingredients abundant in this part of the world. Together with co-author Sharon Kramis, Ingle shares his knowledge in the book Northwest Bounty (1988, revised edt. 1999). Although originally published more than two decades ago, the book is forward looking in its use of local ingredients and humanely raised animals. It also includes useful information ranging from the sex life of oysters and catching dungeness crab, to sharpening kitchen knives. In her foreword to Northwest Bounty, Barbara Kafka writes: "Schuyler and Sharon's Pacific Northwest, with its mushroom hunters, bakers, and organic gardeners, strongly reminds me of my own Eden in Vermont. These are places that nourish the passionate eaters and lovers of good food and the good earth. No one should miss this book. We should cherish it as we cherish our supplies and our garden." Ingle, who no longer lives on Bainbridge Island, is author and co-author of three more books - Yama-Otoko (1977), Secrets of the Earth (1981), and Vintage Pellegrini: The Collected Wisdom of an American Buongustaio (1991). He has also written articles for Harpers, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and contributes to various prestigious food, travel and technology websites.
