Scott Leysath — The Sporting Chef — has been in outdoor television for 2 decades now. He joins us today to talk about a topic that’s near and dear to us — eating species that many others perceive as inedible or at least unpalatable.

In other words, it’s time to develop a sophisticated meat palate!

Kava is the root of Piper methysticum, a member of the black...
