Eat Weeds, published by Phaidon, is your comprehensive guide into the fascinating world of wild food. Collecting and using wild food was a common practice long, long time ago, but has been forgotten in today's world. Now this book reminds you of the basics of the world's oldest cuisine and answers questions such as what, where and when to collect wild plants, vegetables and herbs that can be used for food. Discover delicious new flavours and enjoy the most natural food the earth has to offer!
From forest to seaside, riverbank to city street - even your own yard - there is wild food and medicine available to those who know what to look for. In the face of global challenges such as climate change, food security and pandemic, we seek to empower ourselves with the information and skills that bring self-reliance and equip us to care for our families and communities. Eat Weeds shows how you can engage with wild food sources, reconnect with the stories of our ancestors, and care for local ecologies while transforming your neighbourhood into an edible adventure.
