A New Zealand guide to the art of foraging - a comprehensive guide to finding sustainable, free and fascinating plants.
In the urban and rural wildernesses, there is an abundance of food just waiting to be discovered, if only you know what to look for. Foraged food is healthy, economical and sustainable, but the best part is the fun you will have finding it.
This book is guaranteed to make you look at the plants around you in a different light. The Forager's Treasury features profiles of many edible plants commonly found in New Zealand; advice on where to find them, how to harvest them and how best to use them; and over 60 delicious food recipes as well as more than 30 recipes for medicine, natural dyes, perfumes and skin care.
This fully revised and updated edition of a classic bestseller is an exhaustive treasure trove of information about our wild plants.
