Season 1, Episode 5
Ben follows the footsteps of celebrated adventurers Lewis & Clark as he navigates the Columbia River with the Yakama Nation of Native Americans during their annual sturgeon catch. The locals' reverence for nature and all it provides extends to more recent residents of the state as well, including locavore chef Eric Bechard, who was thrown in jail after a fight broke out over the origins of a pig, after it was determined that it was from out of state. Post catch, Ben pan-sears ling cod at Thistle in McMinnville, as well as preparing crab cakes and crab cocktails at Saffron Salmon in Newport.
