Chef JESSE GRIFFITHS embodies the forefront of the new hunting-cooking movement. He has gained national praise for his strictly local butcher shop and supper clubs (Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Country Living, Garden & Gun) and his series of practical hunting schools are the first of their kind. In less than a year, they have drawn students from around the country and have gained attention from the New York Times, Texas Monthly, and others. Jesse was nominated as Food & Wine’s The People’s Best New Chef in 2011, and is the owner and chef of Dai Due with his life/ work partner, Tamara Mayfield. The couple received Austin’s Edible Communities Local Hero award in 2012.  Jesse is the author of Afield: A chef’s guide to preparing and cooking wild game and fish, a James Beard Award finalist in 2013.
