GIVEAWAY – Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide & Wild Food Cookbook

weekend book love

Imagine a book that teaches you not only how to identify and harvest wild edibles, but also how to prepare those plants into mouthwatering recipes.

Now, imagine if that book were a feast for the eyes as well, showcasing beautiful hand-drawn and painted, scientifically-accurate illustrations of the plants you’re foraging.

Now, imagine if the recipes weren’t just one recipe each, but master recipes that can be adapted in more than 40 different ways depending on the particular plants and quantities you foraged.

My friends! Such a book exists.

I have it in my hands at this very moment. It’s called Foraging & Feasting – A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook. And this week, I’m giving away a copy to one of you lucky readers!

Written by Dina Falconi and illustrated by Wendy Hollender, this book is an absolutely stunning addition to any home.

But you won’t find it in many bookstores.

foraging-feasting-cover

That’s because the author and illustrator are selling through their own publishing company rather than large distribution channels. You may still find it in independent book stores, but chances are good you’ll want to special order it through your local retailer or order it online directly from the publisher.

Why forage foods?

Foraged foods are free. They require no inputs or cultivation.

And, foraged foods often have superior flavor and nutrition to cultivated foods. That’s because cultivated fruits and vegetables are created to hold up to mechanical harvesting, cold storage, shipping long distances, and to look beautiful on store shelves. They’re not cultivated for depth of flavor or nutrient-density.

Foraged foods provide a great way to opt out of the industrial food supply, and Foraging & Feasting – A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook makes it easy to harvest and prepare these foraged foods in delectable, hearty recipes.

    G’day! Foraging for food has always fascinated with me, true!
    Because of my lack of knowledge of what I can or can’t eat, I have put this on my long list to wanting to learn more about one day; perhaps today is the day! :)
    Cheers! Joanne

    I pre-ordered this book for my Mom for mother’s day and ordered one for myself at the same time. It is a beautiful well-illustrated book and easy to follow due to all the wonderful pictures. I have a good friend who would absolutely love this! Thanks for the great giveaway.

    Not a comment a question. Recently received Meyer lemon oil—–does it need to be refrigerated?

    Hi
    I am from Australia & my niece, Kate, & I have been disturbed by the waste of food in our cities – many people have fruit trees etc & can’t use the abundance of their crops & often leave it to fall & rot! We encourage people to connect with their Neighbours & share – offering something in return ( maybe your own produce, or offer to clean up fallen fruit, or prune etc.)
    We do video blogs on how to do all this!
    We will be doing one soon on edible weeds in the city & urban beekeeping!
    In Australia we sometimes call food ‘tucker’ – hence our name!
    See us on urbantuckerwoman.com

    Love your blog & work!

    Cheers Caroline

    Fascinating idea. I started watching what I eat lately and definitely eating a lot more raw vegetables. Include eating Kimchee and Sauerkraut. I don’t get acid reflux anymore. I like this idea a lot, because, there is so much we modern people, who have given up our will to the modern corporate processed diet, have not seen improving health conditions, we are seeing more health problems. We need to be smart about the choices we make, it’s not to late. I will buy your book and put it on my tablet, I hope you have a tablet version. If not, I’ll tuck the book in a cover of some sort. I hope that you’ve had a very Merry Christmas and I hope that you have a Blessed, Happy and Prosperous New Year.
