We are blessed with two of the best foragers in the country, nationally and internationally known, but local to the Pacific Northwest. You will be hard pressed to attend a workshop that is so intimate, so close to nature, and so informative and accessible to the novice or the expert. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! If you have a Lagotto, this is a great opportunity to mix, train, and play with other Lagotto owners and their dogs.
Alana McGee, CPDT-KA, is one of only a handful of proven professional truffle dog handlers in all of North America who harvests native truffles as well as works on European style plantations or truffieres. With her Lagotto Romagnolo Lolo, she spends much of the winter and spring in the field harvesting and selling truffles, as well as training teams online and in the field.
Jeremy Faber is a nationally known pioneer in the foraging industry, since 2001. He has a reputation across the USA, in the finest restaurants and markets, as the number one quality provider of myriad found edibles. He has warehouse bases in Boston, New York, and Seattle, and has been the subject of a book, "The Mushroom Hunters", by Langdon Cook. He is a wealth of information, speaking casually of observations that have taken him decades to acquire.
Roy Breiman is the executive chef for Coastal Hotels, which owns Cedarbrook Lodge and Semiahmoo Resort, among other properties. Roy has had an illustrious cooking career, in France, at Meadowood in Napa Valley, at the Salish Lodge, and at Copperleaf at Cedarbrook. He beat Bobby Flay last year on his television show of the same name. He is no stranger to truffles nor passing along his vast experience in the kitchen.
