The Foraging Home Cook is a collection of international recipes, all tried and tested by author Paola Bassanese, a keen forager in London. This is the "no frills" version of The Foraging Home Cook: it's a cookery book for home cooks who enjoy foraging for wild foods. Although there are no illustrations, all the recipes have been tried and tested and are aimed at people with some prior knowledge of foraging. Using foraged wild foods allows you to have a healthier diet and save the environment by keeping your carbon emission low. Do you want to live an environment-friendly and sustainable life? Would you like to reduce carbon emissions and eat vegetables that grow locally? It's easier than you think, if you are willing to do some research and invest time in learning about edible wild foods. Maybe it's time to stop considering wild plants like nettles just a nuisance and take a serious look at their nutritional value. Then, the next step is to taste edible plants, discover new flavours (and discard those who don't quite agree with our palate) and experiment with them in the kitchen. 'The Foraging Home Cook' is a practical cookbook for the home cook: if you consider the two extremes in cooking, where on the one side you have restaurant-quality, labour-intensive and extravagant recipes, and on the opposite side you have boiled or steamed vegetables, this cookbook will offer you ideas for weekday and weekend dishes. Author Paola Bassanese says: "Foraging is waistline- and wallet-friendly. It's good for the environment and it makes you enjoy the great outdoors." She wrote 'The Foraging Home Cook' day by day, cooking meals and taking notes on how to prepare them using foraged ingredients. The recipe book almost reads like a food diary, with some anecdotes and background information on wild plants and their uses. Each time she picked a new ingredient she came up with one or more recipes to cook with it. 'The Foraging Home Cook' is a recipe book aimed at people who may not have too much time to cook during the week but want to prepare healthy meals that have a good nutritional value from vegetables rich in vitamins and minerals. Plants featured in the book are mostly available in the UK but some plants are also native of other countries outside of the UK. You will find recipes for everyday meals, more indulgent dishes to enjoy at the weekend, and some information about great plants to forage locally. Ever wanted to make elderflower cordial or make a great stir-fry with wild vegetables? Now you can - there are so many recipes to choose more
