Danielle Prewett is founder of the brand Wild + Whole and a Wild Foods Contributing Editor for Meateater. She was born and raised in Texas and was introduced to the outdoors by her husband, an avid hunter and angler. Together they live off the land by hunting and fishing for all of their protein. She is passionate about the intersection between food and nature because it enables her to connect with her food and eat more consciously, something she hopes to inspire in others. South Texas is now home for Danielle, and when she isn’t in the kitchen, she can be found in the garden, upland hunting with her two bird dogs, or on the coast sight-casting redfish.
I came at this from a food angle, and I had no idea that it would turn me into such a conservationist. The more that I spent time outside and the more that I had a tangible connection to the ingredients I was sourcing, I realized everything that is necessary in order for these habitats and animals to thrive.
