A Girl Hunter’s Guide to Conscious Eating
Chef Georgia Pellegrini’s passion for good, simple food began at an early age while fishing for trout in upstate New York. After a brief foray into the corporate world of finance, she enrolled in the French Culinary Institute in New York City. While working at farm-to-table restaurants, Pellegrini realized she was most interested in the foragers, fig collectors, and salami makers who arrived at the restaurants with their goods. Her purpose became to know and understand where her food was coming from—whether it be from field or stream. As a meat-eater, this eventually led Pellegrini to hunting. Now, in addition to authoring books and writing a popular blog, she hosts adventure getaways, ushering groups of women through what maybe their first experience with hunting, cleaning, and cooking their own food.
