Dan Jason is the author of many books, including The Power of Pulses (Douglas & McIntyre, 2016, with Hilary Malone and Alison Malone Eathorne). He lives on Salt Spring Island, BC, where he founded the mail-order seed company Salt Spring Seeds. Michele Genest writes a regular cooking column for Yukon, North of Ordinary Magazine and is...
