Wild FoodLisen Sundgren, illustrated by Nadia Nörbom
With the help of Wild Food you will find nature’s useful and edible plants, seeds, flowers and leaves that will do good for both body and mind. Did you know that you can eat nettle seeds? A pinch of the small vitamin bombs is great to sprinkle over a salad as a useful crunch. Or that a pair of light green spruce shoots becomes an exciting accessory on the dining table? Maybe you want to make a floral bath salt? It is quick to fix, and absolutely wonderful to have in the bath in a dark December night, when your body and mind needs that little extra.
With Wild Food in your hand you will learn how to harvest in a way that is sustainable for the future, and how to take care of your harvest so that it preserves taste and quality. The book’s encyclopedia gives you solid knowledge of the 80 best plants for nature-related cooking and strengthened health: where they grow, when to harvest and how they taste. The book also contains information on the nutrient content of the plants and the best food recipes and home remedies. Each plant is illustrated with stunningly beautiful and detailed watercolor paintings so that it is easy to pick right.
Do like top restaurants around the world and pick from nature’s own pantry, wild food is good for the soul and on the plate!
