Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook celebrates and reclaims the lost of art of turning locally gathered wild plants into nutritious, delicious meals – a traditional foodway long practiced by our ancestors but neglected in modern times. The book’s 50 beautiful, instructive botanical illustrations and over 100 enlightening master recipes offer an adventurous and satisfying way to eat locally and seasonally. Readers will be capable of identify, harvest, prepare, eat, and savor the wild bounty all around them. The mouth watering recipes have been developed with flexibility in mind. They taste great when made with cultivated fruits and vegetable too. They also cater to quite a lot of dietary restrictions: gluten-free, casein-free, dairy-free, grain-free, and sugar-free. Thousands of recipe variations arise from the master recipes. The easy-to-use reference charts collate the information found right through the book, helping to locate the harvest and use it tastefully. The botanical identification pages focus primarily on plants that are wild, abundant and very common. Many of them are ubiquitous and can also be found in quite a lot of temperate zones of the world: North & South The usa, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australasia. On the other hand, Dina was unable in her research to pinpoint the exact world range for each plant. Note: Dina has included a couple of plants that start as cultivated specimens where she lives (Northeastern U.S) that then freely spread themselves, becoming wild in the landscape. They are wild in other parts of the world. The featured plants grow in quite a lot of zones, ranging from 2 to 9, with zones 4 to 8 being more typical. By the way the Kitchen Arts cookbook section will be useful anywhere on the earth. The recipes are designed as master templates so you’ll be able to plug in quite a lot of wild plants or cultivated ones for that matter.
