Connect with the earth and explore the outdoors with this enchanting cookbook from Fox Meets Bear blogger Johnna Holmgren.

We forget that there is magic in food. We’ve lost an appreciation for how the ingredients we use came to be, how they grew, and where they werec ultivated. In short, we’ve lost an appreciation for the earth. But Johnna Holmgren is here to restore that a

DANGEROUS, MISLEADING AND INCOMPLETE. SHE WAS UNQUALIFIED TO WRITE THIS, DID IT ANYWAY AND PRESENTED HERSELF AS QUALIFIED AND YOU CAN LITERALLY SUFFER PERMANENT HEALTH DAMAGE FROM SOME OF THE THINGS SHE’S TELLING YOU TO EAT. SHE IS INTERESTED IN SELLING BOOKS AND BEING ADMIRED ONLY - SHE HAS NO INTEREST IN CORRECTLY COMMUNICATING WELLNESS INFORMATION IN A BENEFICIAL WAY OR SHE WOULD BE LISTENING INSTEAD OF SAYING “it’s for adventurous eaters”. LIKE “If you die, I’m not liable. Peace and love!!!” ...more

Shelves: foraging, herbalism
I have been wanting to review this book for a while, but due to the circumstances surrounding its publication and pulling it off the shelves I wanted to truly take time to absorb its contents and research its legitimacy.

2.5 stars. I am so conflicted with this book. If you like Kinfolk magazine, you'll love the photos of the unattainable crunchy lifestyle strewn upon these pages. I am not a fan, but the recipes made me look past this. (There are some good plates here that I am excited to try, but I have yet to test them out.)

It was offputting to see, what are basically "sponsored posts" in print format. I had no idea this person had a blog or who they were before I picked-up the cookbook; had I know, I probably

The book is a delight to read. It is not a not an in depth foragers encyclopedia, It is exactly what it states it is in the title "the ultimate field guide to evoke curiosity and wonderment" and that it does. Recipes will not kill you as some have ranted on about. True not properly handling and preparing raw foraged food can make you sick but so does foraging prepackaged foods at the the supermarket. And yes some preparation and and safe handling precautions are understated. But it's a double st ...more

I can't believe this is being sold still, you should not be eating raw elderberries, or morels for that matter.
Pretty picture though.

I found the poor editing of this book to be distracting; however, the photography and personal stories were charming enough to keep me engaged.
