Jim Casada - Pasta and Persimmons
Jim Casada is a professor who is also an expert on fly fishing North Carolina's mountain streams. In addition to his academic and fishing credits, he is also the author of several cookbooks. His newsletter is a great read and I encourage you to sign up for it.
This month's edition includes recipes for everything from Pasta E Fagoli to Persimmon Pudding. As a kid it was always a big event when we packed up the family for a day of picking ripe persimmons.
