The Wild Table
Our Price: $40.00

The Wild Table is an invitation into the romantic, mysterious, and delicious world of exotic, foraged food. Once overlooked by culinary aficionados, in the last decade the celebration of organic foods, farmer's markets, and artisanal producers has dovetailed with a renewed passion for wild delicacies. From four-star restaurants to local markets, more and more wild food is appearing and gaining star status. On the forefront of the foraging movement is longtime "huntress" Connie Green, who sells her gathered goods across the country and to Napa Valley's finest restaurants like French Laundry along with long-time chef and culinary consultant Sarah Scott. In The Wild Table, they take readers with them into the woods and then back to the kitchen with wild delights.

Structured in parts by season—The Wild Table teaches the reader how to forage for one's own wild foods and contains recipes for ingredients used regularly in today's haute cuisine and introduces exciting, lesser known specialties.

Along with incredible recipes, each section is led by an essay that captures the essence of each ingredient and shares foraging stories. A fabulous addition to your culinary library.
