I am always interested in wild food. And this book did not disappoint. I also learned a lot of different things I could make with these foods. What a bonus!
This books takes a refreshing and practical approach to wild food. It is an ethical field guide and recipe books that promotes respect for the natural world and the cultures that use it effectively.
the book is written by an accomplished ethno-botanist and educator. The book rekindles an interest in natural foods including taking advantage of natural’s pharmacy for medicinal plant use.
While reading this book, the reader learns about the variety of plants around them and what to do with them once they have harvested them. I learned that there is so much that can be done! What a bonus! We no longer have to waste these wild foods. They are actually really good for us and something that we should all consume.
However, the author also warns us that some wild fruits and veggies are poisonous and should not be consumed under any circumstances. This is great advice too and advice that we should heed.
I love books that push the boundaries of cooking and consuming food. Food can be so healthy and wonderful. May we all find the rhythm in these natural fruits and veggies.
This book is for the gardener as well as for the person who likes to experiment with foods of all kinds.
