    Podcast Ep. 010: Jon Wipfli – FISH Cookbook

    FISH Cookbook









    In today's podcast I sit down with Jamie Carlson and special guest Jon Wipfli. Jon is a Twin Cities chef who grew up in Wisconsin and then went off to get trained at the French Culinary Institute in New York before heading back to the Midwest (Minnesota) where he continued his food journey. He's the founder of Animales Barbeque Co. which sits just outside of Able Seedhouse brewery in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis. He's also the author of the cookbooks VENISON, and the forthcoming FISH cookbook (links below). We talk about growing up in the midwest, learning to hunt and fish, and then dig into what it means to cook great fish. Enjoy the conversation!

    Welcome to the Modern Carnivore Podcast. A guide for those interested in hearing more about hunting, fishing and other paths to eating more responsibly. Now here's your host, Mark Norquist.



    Mark: 00:23



    Hello everyone and welcome to this episode 10 of the Modern Carnival or podcast. Today I am joined by John Wipfli and Jamie Carlson. Jamie, you are probably familiar with as he is a regular contributor on Modern Carnivore and if you haven't checked out a couple of his recent recipes, I highly recommend it. One of them is a nettle pasta and if you think about stinging nettles, they're generally something that you want to avoid when you're in the outdoors because obviously they can create a stingy irritation, uh, to your skin. But Jamie shares with everyone a recipe for turning these wild weeds into this beautiful green pasta, which I think is pretty fascinating. Another recipe he recently did was a venison heart tar-tar. If you have not eaten heart from a large angulate like a, like a deer, you're missing out. The tar tar recipe is, is essentially a way to prepare it raw and, uh, I've had heart with Jamie before and I know he knows how to prepare it very well and so I think you would find that recipe fascinating.

    Foraging For Wild Food









    IMPORTANT NOTE: Eating and foraging for wild food of any sort (including mushrooms, nuts, berries and plants) carries inherent risks. If you forage for food please make sure you know what you are gathering, and that it is safe to eat before consuming any of it.



    In this ninth episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast I'm joined by Jenna Rozelle and Jamie Carlson where we talk about all things outdoors, but mostly foraging for wild food. Jenna lives in Maine and has spent her life looking for ways to get food, medicine and more from the bounty of wild. We talk mushrooms, black walnuts, rosehips, squirrel hunting and more. Below are links to related materials.

    Hello and welcome to episode nine of the Modern Carnivore Podcast. Today I am joined by Jenna Rozelle and Jamie Carlson. Jamie as you know, is a wild game cook and a regular contributor, uh, Modern Carnivore. And, uh, we always love getting Jamie's perspectives on different things related to wild food. And Jenna is somebody that, uh, that we connected with, uh, this last year at the, at the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers National Rendezvous in Boise, Idaho. And we just had a lot of fun talking with her about all things wild and plants and mushrooms, et cetera. Jenna lives in the state of Maine and she learned the value of wild plants as a young girl from her mother and has really carried that through into her lifestyle as an adult. She really makes a living by connecting with wild foraged items and sharing both expertise and sometimes the bounty of the forest with, with others. And, uh, and so it's fun to hear her perspectives on, on foraging. And she's also got an interesting story from the standpoint of she came to hunting as an adult. So for those of you who are considering the idea of hunting now, uh, I think she's yet one more example of somebody who came to this activity as an adult and really saw how it connects to her passion for all thin...

    Wilderness Areas and the BWCAW





    In this eighth episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast I take a trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness ( BWCAW ) with a great group of guys to go hunting and fishing. That group included Miles Nolte from Gray's Sporting Journal (but he's now a member of the crew at Meat Eater), Lukas Leaf from Sportsmen For The Boundary Waters, Rob Drieslein who is the President of Outdoor News and Jack Hennessy who is an outdoor writer and wild game cook. I also focus on Wilderness (with a capitol "W") and specifically the threats to public lands and waters like the BWCAW.

    Mark:   00:23     



    Hey everyone. Welcome to episode number eight of Modern Carnivore Podcast.



    Mark:   00:30      



    Today we're going to talk about Wilderness areas. And more specifically, we're going to take you to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, which is the most threatened Wilderness in the U.S. So before we get into that, let's do a little background on what we mean by wilderness with a capital w. The Wilderness Act was signed into law by President Lyndon B Johnson in 1964 and it created the National Wilderness Preservation System and it also put a legal definition around the term Wilderness. One of the primary authors of this act, Howard Zahniser, uh, defined it this way, "A Wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.

    Mark:   01:43            



    It's really protective overlay that's applied to certain areas in our country; certain areas of public lands. They could be national forest parks, wildlife refuges, any number of different places. Um, one of the criticisms that has been made in the past about it is the reference to quote man himself as is a visitor who does not remain. But I think that's the critical element of it and why it is really unique. So if you think about it, there are very few places where there are no buildings, no roads, no machines, and the only really semi-permanent structures I can think of would be these throne toilets. Basically a seat to sit on and do your business and the fire ...

    Chronic Wasting Disease





    In this seventh episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast I sit down with Dr. Lou Cornicelli who is the Wildlife Research Manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Dr. Cornicelli has dedicated his professional career to the study and management of large ungulates (mammals with hooves). We primarily discuss Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and the risks this disease poses to our wild deer herd. If you're just starting your hunting journey please don't let this topic scare you in any way from continuing with your journey, but do educate yourself on the topic as it's an important one.

    Hello everyone, and welcome to this episode seven of the Modern Carnivore Podcast. I'd like to thank everyone who has been sending notes and a positive (comments) in terms of asking when our next episode was coming out. And I do need to apologize because I have been relatively inconsistent in pushing these out, uh, recently. And that's mainly a function of a very busy lifestyle. And I love this platform for having conversations and introducing new people to you and new topics. And so I'm really going to put an effort this next year around putting out episodes more consistently. So, uh, look for that. And again, I appreciate your positive feedback on the recent episodes. So today I am joined by Dr Lou Cornicelli. Ah, Lou is a leading wildlife biologist who has really dedicated his career to the study of large ungulates. For those of you aren't familiar with the term ungulates, it is a hooved mammal.

    In this sixth episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast I sit down with Tom Landwehr who is the Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. This is a position that is appointed by the Governor of Minnesota. Tom has been in this position for eight years, overseeing the management of wildlife and habitat across the state. I caught up with the Commissioner at the 2017 Minnesota Governor's Deer Hunting Opener to talk about the culture of deer camp and the work his agency does in the state of Minnesota. In early 2019 he is ending his tour of duty as the Commissioner, so while I'm very delayed in getting this post out I felt it was important to share this conversation with a true conservation leader.

    Mark: 00:22



    Hello everyone and welcome to this episode of the Modern Carnivore podcast. Today I'm joined by Tom Landwehr and this is actually a recording from back in 2017 at the Minnesota Governor's deer hunting opener event, and this is an event that's gone on for many years here in Minnesota and I think is a great reflection of the importance of deer camp culture and the deer hunting season to our state, that the Governor would put an event like this together. Commissioner Landwehr is now ending his tour here as the as the Commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources in early 2019, and so I thought it was appropriate to get this podcast recording out as the commissioner of the DNR. He is appointed by the governor to really enforce hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation laws, and also manage much of the public land that exists within the state of Minnesota. There are also federal and county lands, but they're much of it is managed by the state, which is then managed by this organization, the Department of Natural Resources for both recreation as well as industry like timber and mining. They also deal with threats to the land and water like invasive species in diseases like chronic wasting disease, that's starting to affect the deer herd in different areas of the country. Stepping back for a moment, if you look at the North American model for conservation, one of the tenants of it calls for scientific management of wildlife and habitats and state agencies are a big part of that managem...

    In this fifth episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast I sit down with Howard Vincent who is the President and CEO of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. The hunting conservation organization he leads is a pioneer in conserving and restoring habitat that benefits upland game. Their work not only supports a healthy environment for pheasants and quail, but many other wild critters, and clean water. Howard grew up in Duluth, MN which is one of my favorite places. He shares what it was like growing up in the north woods with parents who let him roam free, and how he got his kids started off hunting (and doing other things in the woods) at a young age. Listen in on this engaging conversation with a true conservation leader.

And if you're not familiar with them, they are a conservation organization that in my mind represents a really classic example of the good that the hunting community does to promote a healthy ecosystem. Their tagline is "The Habitat Organization" and that is where they put all of their energy is in improving and protecting and conserving the habitat that these birds, pheasants and quail, but also a whole host of other types of wildlife thrive in. They've got 150 wildlife biologists that work with them across the country and they've got nearly 150,000 members that are in, I think over 700 chapters across the country. So if you're curious about them, you can probably find a chapter somewhere near you. And if you look at the results of what they've done, they've had impact on more than I believe, 16 million acres across the country.
