Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook celebrates our local bounty and traditional foodways. The book features beautiful, instructive botanical illustrations and delicious, enlightening recipes. We share this project with you out of our long commitment to connecting with nature through food and art. The effort weaves together Dina’s 30 years of passionate investigations into wild-plant identification, foraging and cooking with Wendy’s deft artistic skills honed over 15 years as a botanical illustrator. Dina spent four years writing, directing the art, and designing the book, as well as steadfastly testing the recipes, while Wendy drew and designed the book with Dina. The result is an abundance of recipes and illustrations that celebrate wild plants and creative ways to bring them into our lives. We hope you will join us in this tasty culinary adventure.
