    in Food

    Forager and writer JJ Murphy has been eating wild foods since she could walk. Growing up on a family farm in Connecticut gave her many opportunities to forage yards, gardens and woods. After earning a Masters degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Kansas, she moved to New York City and discovered urban foraging.
    JJ writes The Joyful Forager column for the Shawangunk Journal in New York’s Hudson Valley. Her articles have appeared in the publications Wildness Magazine, Outdoors Unlimited, and Spores Illustrated. Ms. Murphy studies wild mushrooms with renown mycologist Gary Lincoff and was a scholarship recipient at the Clark Rogerson Mushroom Foray and the North East Mycological Federation Foray.
    She studied ethnobotany with Barrie Kavasch and forages with television host Wildman Steve Brill, Sam Thayer, Jim Cappossela, Leda Meredith and has taken bushcraft courses with Tracker Tom Brown, adding tracking, hunting, fishing and trapping to her wild food gathering skills. JJ Murphy lives in Orange County, NY at the foot of Schunemunk Mountain.
    Joyful Foraging is a step by step guide for anyone who wants to eat healthier, fresher, more flavorful foods while trimming grocery costs by 30% or more. Ms. Murphy’s easy to follow ebook shows readers how to forage wild edibles in urban, suburban and rural  settings, use them in revamped gourmet recipes, cocktails and even pet food, all while benefitting local eco-systems.

About Food

The food revolution has changed our view of what we eat, including how we source it. Being a foodie has now become a rite of passage, especially in urban centers. The biggest change? Choice. With so many options available, going vegetarian, vegan, kosher, Paleo and gluten-free no longer puts us at a disadvantage when shopping or dining out. This isn't your grandma's kitchen, unless you want it to be: Plan old-style meals to trendy organics, whether you're craving homemade mac and cheese, brisket or locally grown sustainable broccoli rabe. Throwing a dinner party? Let Food Network stars and celebrity chefs share what works. Trying to lose weight or need ways to get kids to eat their veggies? Tune in for recipe ideas or share your own! We also talk wine, from connoisseurs in search of the perfect varietal to food pairings to those wanting the best bang for their buck.
