This gorgeous book is essentially wild-food porn for locavore cooks and foragers. The odds that I-- or most east-coast foragers-- are going to try these recipes seems small (foragers and creme fraiche, which occurs in nearly every recipe, are unlikely bedfellows), but perhaps west-coast foodies who can get wild food from their markets or the forager down the road will try them.

I think I've checked this book out at least 5 times now. Maybe it's time to buy it. I love thumbing through and looking at the pictures, getting caught up in the stories and feel of it all and dreaming of trying each recipe.

This is a huge, beautiful book with some good recipes, but there aren't a ton of them. There are really only a handful (ok, maybe a small basketful) of different wild plants featured. The rather-gourmet-ish recipes do look delicious, though not particularly healthy. I'm looking forward to making rose hip and spruce tip syrup. :-)

You really need to know the plants first - this is not a good identification book.
Elderberry syrup, jellies, juniper (duck) pork roast -- all absolutely amazing so far! Can't wait to try out a few more 'gourmet' recipes!

This is NOT a plant identification book, but an excellent cookbook resource teaching you what to do with the plants you forage.
Beautiful photos and unique recipes. I was looking for a good recipe that uses puffball mushrooms and found it along with a few other great recipes for black walnuts, dandelion greens, etc. I was surprised that pawpaws didn't make it into this book though.

Disappointing. There was not enough information in pics or words to help a person identify the mushrooms and other forageables unless you were already familiar with them.
Wow wow wow. A cookbook that really changes things in my kitchen, for good. Really a fantastic, creativity-spurring book of lovely photos and amazing blends. Love this one.
The photos were beautiful, and the recipes inventive. I was hoping for a little more information on plant identification.
