Dr. Todd Pesek, in 2015, as we start out on our trek through the Cleveland Metroparks for an interview for my book Grocery. He’s also an Appalachian root doctor and an expert forager.

We’re back from the holiday break with a podcast episode on foraging, one of the activities that made our species thrive long ago but about which, today, relatively few people know. I speak with three great foragers, a chef, a professional forager, and a doctor.

Listen to From Scratch with Michael Ruhlman from iHeartRadio, also on Apple podcasts and Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. If you do, please rate it. It helps other people who love food and cooking find out about it!

Dr Todd! He’s currently on a cleanse after the rich foods of the holiday. Give his Super Broth a try.
