The Wild Food Gourmet:
Fresh and Savory Food From Nature

by Anne Gardon (Paperback, 174 pages, 1998, $25.00)

Wild Food GourmetCooking with wild food is a gratifying experience from start to finish. Discover a bounty of tender leaves, delicious berries and nutritious roots that grow wild all around us. Illustrated with over 75 color photos, this delightful cookbook features 100 delicious recipes using fresh-picked greens, berries and mushrooms and brings a new twist to home cooking and camping trips.

Author Anne Gardon grew up in Provence, France, where she followed her parents on their quest for wild edibles. When she came to North America she discovered a totally different and fascinating vegetation and started harvesting and eating wild edibles, which turned out to be delicious.

Our favorite recipe is for Tortellini with Artichoke Hearts and Shaggy Manes (click to enlarge):
