Staff Reviews


From
amaranth to yarrow and ginkgo to goldenrod, this book is an ideal guide
for folks who'd like to go beyond supermarkets and even farmer's
markets to find delicious, nourishing wild foods. The book starts with
an inspiring introduction and a very helpful section in which plants are
grouped by season and habitat. Then, Meredith describes each edible
plant in detail, including how to identify, when and where to gather,
how to gather, how to eat, how to preserve, and future harvests.
Gorgeous photos complement each entry. The result is a book that's a
joy for beginners, but with useful, observant tips that experienced
foragers will appreciate. It's a real pleasure, too, to have a book
that focuses on the northeast. Meredith helps those of us in this snowy
corner of the country see that there's a lot on the menu - even in the
winter!

— From Northeast Foraging, by Leda Meredith
