Eduardo Garcia grew up free roaming in the Montana backcountry north of Yellowstone National Park, in the company of elk and bison and native trout. The son of a Mexican fisherman and a teacher, he learned to cook because he needed a job but found his life’s passion in the work – and in the hunting and fishing and foraging that provided the finest ingredients for the dishes he loved the most. He became a yacht chef, traveling the world, and a celebrity. But upon his return to Montana, on a simple afternoon of elk hunting, his whole world changed forever – and his already powerful story became one of overcoming extraordinary adversity and rebuilding a life, one slow step at a time. Come join us for this episode of epic personal will and triumph, of metaphor and wisdom, gained in the hardest ways of all.
