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.
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.
