(Dog trainer Jean Rand prepares to go truffling with her black Lab Gusto/Photo courtesy of Joyce Eberhart.)

We speak with local dog trainers and a mycologist about how hunting with hounds could improve the culinary reputation of Oregon's underground wild truffles. Using dogs, instead of blindly hand-raking, is less damaging to forest ecosystem, as truffles grow at the roots of young Douglas firs. The Oregon Truffle Festival takes place in Eugene Jan. 29-31. And check out of a video of Southeast Portland resident Eric Lyon hunting truffles with dog Zoe here.

Community Calendar: We give you the 411 on food events for Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year and Haiti fundraisers.

Then we hear from Emily Stimac of the First Alternative Co-op in Corvallis on how to cook with in-season parsnips and turnips.

The season of bounty (ripe strawberries, shelling peas, cherries) is upon us. But you may lose your appetite after seeing Food, Inc., the new documentary that exposes how industrial agriculture has tainted our food supply. You'll never care to eat Smithfield ham, Tyson chicken or transgenic high-fructose corn syrup again! All the more reason to grow and preserve your own food. And with the Pacific Northwest's abundance of berries, now is the time to jam.

Baldemar Mendoza Jimenez is the coordinator of the agro-ecology program for UNOSJO (the Union of Organizations of the Sierra Juarez, Oaxaca).  Sr. Mendoza is an expert on food sovereignty issues and the impacts of free trade agreements on indigenous farmers from Oaxaca.  UNOSJO is an indigenous organization that works with indigenous communities and organizations in the Zapotec region of the Sierra Juárez, located in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.  UNOSJO has denounced the contamination of native corn in Oaxaca by genetically-modified (GMO) corn and is a leader within Oaxaca on food security issues.  Their efforts also focus on women’s issues, indigenous rights, and organic coffee production. 

I was able to attend Baldemar's lecture when he visited Portland.  About a hundred people attended.  Baldemar's lecture is spoken in Spanish and translated by Anne Theisen.

crab fan here in portland

I am the daughter of a fishing captain (private sportfishing) and born/raised on the east coast of Fla so I know fish and shell fish!!   I am a HUGE fan of Dungeness crab since moving here last Nov!  Yes, Dung. is way better and more fulfilling than blue crab and my top two favorites!!  The one comperable crab is the Fla Stonecrab which you only pull one claw off the crab and release the crab so it can grow another appendage!!!  nice not having to kill the crab to enjoy eating it!!   Gotta try this sweet crab claw!!!  Really superior just as Dung. is!!!
