Malcolm grew up in the unforested region of the Treasure Valley near Nampa, Idaho. He couldn't wait to move
north, and started attending the University of Idaho as a forestry major in 1973.
The forests and mountains of the northern Rockies called to him, both spiritually and aesthically.
In 1976, Dell discovered wild huckleberries, picking his first gallons near Sandpoint, Idaho while working as a
summer forester for the Idaho Department of Lands. His co-worker TJ, a Sandpoint local, took him out to chase the
purple berries and changed Malcolm's fortunes!
The next morning, Malcolm Dell enjoyed huckleberry pancakes with maple syrup for the first time... still his
favorite. (Although huckleberry cheesecake, syrup, and salad dressing are close!) Oh, and don't forget huckleberry
ice cream topping.
Malcolm still picks huckleberries every fall, in one or more locations of northern Idaho, and enjoys turning his
fingers purple as he fills his face and buckets. Of course, since he discovered huckleberry rake tools in 2007 (and
selling them in 2008) Malcolm enjoys even more of them!
He currently lives near Orofino with his wife, Sandy Dell, and they make a good part of their living, selling
huckleberry goodies at www.TastesofIdaho.com
After finding out Sandy did not like huckleberries, he did the right thing, and did not divorce her. But she
still helps him make huckleberry products for personal and commercial enjoyment.
Their best selling "Idaho Redneck" Huckleberry Toe Jam is still a product they sneak into the pantry fairly
