Harvard Common Press, Mar 17, 2010 - Cooking - 528 pages
A forager's culinary guide (in the field or in the supermarket) to preparing wild, natural foods, with 500 recipes. Our everyday environment is filled with delicious, organic, healthy sources of food. The Wild Vegan
Cookbook will teach you how to take advantage, sustainably and safely, of the wild plants that thrive in local parks, woodlands, fields, and other open spaces, as well as the underuse natural foods increasingly available in markets.
Foraging and natural-cooking expert and longtime vegan Steve Brill thoroughly explains how you can use nearly 150 wild American plants to create dishes that are good for you and taste great. More than 500 diverse recipes are organized by season and give non-foraging cooks excellent non-wild alternative ingredients. Brill has created a comprehensive, groundbreaking culinary reference that anyone can use to create wonderful food.

About the author (2010)

Naturalist-Author "Wildman" Steve Brill has been leading public foraging tours in parks throughout the greater New York area since 1982. He works with schools, day camps, environmental organizations, museums, parks departments, nature centers, scouts, garden clubs, and educational farms, from March to December.

His "Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not-So-Wild) Places "(HarperCollins Publishers, 1994) is considered a classic on the subject.His innovative "Wild Vegan Cookbook "(Harvard Common Press, 2002) is changing the way people think of preparing gourmet food. His "Shoots and Greens of Early Spring in Northeastern North America "(self-published, 1986 and 2008) teaches people how the foraging season begins, and his Foraging With the Wildman DVD series, along with the website he created, is showing people how it's all done. But he's still best known for having been handcuffed and arrested by undercover New York City park rangers for eating a dandelion in Central Park!
