Photographer and author Roger Phillips has compiled a wide-ranging, delectable guide to finding and cooking wild foods. Unlike other books that focus on foraging, Phillips gives detailed recipes and preparation instructions that are critical to cooking and enjoying wild foods. Phillips provides an appetizing and attractive selection of recipes using the many plants, mushrooms, and seaweeds that are edible. Photos help bring these possibilities to life. Recipes range from syrups and teas to main courses. As we are beginning to rediscover the deep nutritional value of wild foods, the missing ingredient until now has been a reliable guide to deploying these healthy, natural ingredients in the kitchen. The Wild Food Cookbook will admirably fill that niche.

Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook celebrates and reclaims the lost 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 beautiful, instructive botanical illustrations and enlightening recipes offer an adventurous and satisfying way to eat locally and seasonally. Readers will be able to identify, harvest, prepare, eat, and savor the wild bounty all around them. We share this project with you out of our long commitment to connecting with nature through food and art. The effort weaves together Dina?s 30 years of passionate investigations into wild-plant identification, foraging, and cooking with Wendy?s deft artistic skills honed over 15 years as a botanical illustrator. The result is an abundance of recipes and illustrations that explore creative ways to bring wild edibles into our lives. Part One of Foraging & Feasting serves as a visual guide, tracking 50 plants through their growing cycle. The images illustrate the culinary uses of wild plants at various seasons. Part Two contains easy-to-use references including Plant Chart Centerfolds and Seasonal Flow Charts. Part Three brings you into the kitchen; here you'll find more than 100 master recipes and countless variations formulated to help you easily turn wild plants into delectable salads, soups, beverages, meat dishes, desserts, and a host of other culinary delights. These recipes are not limited to wild ingredients; they can be used with cultivated ingredients as well, purchased or homegrown. Many of the recipes can be made to accommodate various dietary restrictions: gluten-free, casein-free, dairy-free, grain-free, and sugar-free. Among those who will find the book valuable are the health-conscious members of the Weston A Price Foundation, ever in search of nutrient-dense, traditional whole foods.

To eat wild foods, you needn’t crawl through the forest or hunt your own game. Many wild foods are as close by as your local supermarket. But this doesn’t mean that wild foods aren’t worth the hunt. This book takes a big view of “wild,” including recipes and information on both foraged, uncultivated foods as well as looking at the progeny of wild foods more conveniently found for sale alongside their conventional cousins. Americans are increasingly concerned about where their food comes from and how it’s produced, packaged, and marketed. Heritage breeds, Paleo diets, farmers’ markets, and environmental and climate concerns all point to increased interest in foods that are as natural, untreated, and healthy as they can be. Plants, seafood, meat, and poultry are all covered in more than 150 recipes, and will serve as a historical, agricultural education for your kitchen.
