Requa Inn, Thomas Wortman

When I travel, I try really hard to eat food that is produced in that place.  I want my experience traveling to involve all of my senses including taste — and Thomas Wortman agrees.  As a member of the Yurok tribe and Chef at the Requa Inn, Thomas is working hard to give people a taste of the foods that people have eaten in this region since time essentially began for them.  Yurok people are river people, the salmon has been essential to survival — but there are also other food you might not be as familiar with.  Acorns, seaweed, greens, tubers — the real terroir of Requa, the place where the Klamath River met the ocean.  Enjoy the regional foods in the comfort and cozyness of the Requa Inn!  To hear Thomas talk about the passion of cooking, listen here.
