…food is not just fuel, but an experience, and one we’d do well to honor the full range of.”

Kevin Young

Welcome to The Scholar and the Savage, a food blog with no recipes – just food adventures.

I’m exploring how to reconnect with what we eat by reconnecting with nature. This means exploring the wild and experimenting in the field and kitchen. It includes cooking with primitive methods, locally sourcing ingredients, and learning how to hunt, fish and forage.

By eating consciously, participating in food production, and understanding the story of everything on our plate, I believe we can change the world with food. This blog is just the beginning of an exciting and impactful alimentary journey.
