Field Kitchen Kit

KevinUncategorizedLeave a Comment

Earlier in the week I was cooking a few courses of wild game with Jeff Senger for Knifewear’s annual manager’s meeting in Calgary, and I hauled along my field cookery kit – I was in a hurry and know this kit will bail me out when it’s time to feed people. It needed some repacking and restocking so I figured … Read More

Season 3 Release of From The Wild

KevinUncategorizedLeave a Comment

What an intense journey. Getting to season 3 means 38 episodes, about 130 days in the field. I’ve already greyed in the beard since the early episodes, and the project is doing exactly what I’d hoped – it’s documenting and diarizing a crazy amount of life experience memories that would be impossible to cram into a single person’s head. The … Read More

I’m going to be working on a crew of Neil Grahn‘s on a documentary series about the first time hunter experience. The show’s in development phase which means we’re scheduling pilot work, working out content and logistic details, etc – one of which is lining up the right ‘talent’ for the project. Neil’s looking for first time hunters willing to be on … Read More

DJI Phantom2 Crash. Again.

KevinUncategorizedLeave a Comment

Quadcopters are an amazing piece of production technology, when they’re not crashing. When I was researching buying one, I’d read things like ‘just a matter of time before you crash one‘. Boy were they right. I’ve crashed mine into rocks in the mountains. I’ve learned about “uncontrolled descent” by splooshing it into a lake – only learned later what had happened … Read More

FROM THE WILD – S1 TRAILER

KevinUncategorizedLeave a Comment

We made it. Season One of FROM THE WILD was a roller coaster to be involved with and produce – the insanely fun, adrenaline-filled, addictive kind that means Season Two is already in preproduction, with some exciting tweaks and improvements on deck. I will never be able to say enough about the folks that are tuning in via pay-per-view. You’re what allows … Read More

1867 – Fairview Cellars [Ep 64]

KevinUncategorizedLeave a Comment

Four years ago, which feels like forever ago, I did a fairly comprehensive survey of the South Okanagan winery scene. I tasted loads of wines, took loads of tasting notes, and score loads of wines. From that came a top few that I felt were at the top of the region’s game. Bill’s was one of them. He’s since had a bin … Read More

Winter Project Time

KevinUncategorized5 Comments

I feel like I have a little explaining to do, as I’ve been getting involved with projects that may seem a little out of the blue, but aren’t. Since the snow fell, the cold came, and the outdoor food world froze into ice, I have had time to park myself at an imac and get stuck into building out some … Read More

Pickled Whitefish

KevinUncategorized17 Comments

This is a bit of redemption for me. 2 years ago, I wrote about pickling whitefish, and failed at documenting the recipe or approach to it. So this time around, I’m taking notes as I plan on doing this often. It’s not fussy, it’s tasty, and strikes me as the kind of thing every good northerner should be happy to … Read More

Backyard Apple Crush 2011

KevinUncategorized1 Comment

Today was one of my favorite days of the year. This is my third vintage of apple products from my backyard tree, and today was go-day. I left the apples on about 2 weeks longer than normal, religiously collecting windfalls every day, hoping for a more aromatic and sweet apple. Mission accomplished. The pruning over the years has meant fewer … Read More
