Wild Gourmet takes you on a journey through the wonderful world of wild foods with loads of information on edible wild plants and other foragables that can be taken directly from your backyard straight to the dinner table. The first in a series of wild edibles cookbooks, Wild Gourmet focuses on salad greens and features a variety of plants-foundation greens, tart greens, pungent greens, and bitter greens-to create healthful and mouthwatering dishes that are both good for you and delivered straight from the earth. Each green has its own chapter following the plant from emerging seedling to end-of-life seed production, from foraging to food, from preparation to fine dining. Recipes, including one for marshmallows, are easy and fun to prepare. Chapters Include: What's Edible? Agriotrphytology Plants Morph into Food Wild Paradise Why Eat Wild Food?
