Wild foods are increasingly popular, as evidenced by the number of new books about identifying plants and foraging ingredients, as well as those written by chefs about culinary creations that incorporate wild ingredients. The New Wildcrafted Cuisine, however, goes well beyond both of these genres to deeply explore the flavors of local terroir, combining the research and knowledge of plants and landscape that chefs often lack with the fascinating and innovative techniques of a master food preserver and self-described “culinary alchemist.”

From the heart of the Non-GMO movement comes a collection of recipes and advice for healthy living. Here in the United States, unlabeled GMOs (genetically modified organisms) contaminate as much as 80 percent of the packaged food supply. These novel organisms have never undergone long-term human safety tests, and are labeled or banned in more than 60 countries around the world. The Non-GMO Cookbook is an invaluable resource for the growing number of Americans who are looking to opt out of the GMO experiment.
For this unique cookbook, Megan Westgate and Courtney Pineau of the Non-GMO Project collected a delicious assortment of treasured recipes from friends and allies in the non-GMO community. From classic favorites to bold innovations, you'll find simple recipes for every meal and occasion. Complete with tips for non-GMO shopping, and featuring lots of gluten-free, dairy-free, and allergy-friendly selections, The Non-GMO Cookbook is your complete guide to safe, healthy, non-GMO living.

A traditional foods diet celebrates unrefined, whole and natural foods while avoiding modern, refined ones; it also seeks to prepare them in the same manner as our ancestors, before the industrialization of food. The traditional foods diet, based on the findings of Dr. Weston A. Price's anthropological data from the 1930s, suggests that cultures who subsist on native, unrefined, traditionally prepared foods enjoy better health (with lower rates of infertility, heart disease, diabetes and autoimmune disease) than those who consume a diet of processed foods. This cookbook offers a beautifully illustrated treatment of this nutrient-dense cooking style, with wholesome, time-tested recipes, including restorative bone broths, revitalizing kombuchas and tonics, and hearty and economical bean and lentil dishes. Contrary to nearly all of today's trendy diets, the traditional foods diet is not a restrictive eating style--it focuses on eating diversely and seasonally. It is more inclusive than the paleo diet and shares the environmental and ethical principles of the farm-to-table movement. Practical sidebars include tutorials on infusing honey, making homemade almond flour, preparing a sourdough starter, and rendering poultry fat. Beyond recipes, The Nourished Kitchen also addresses the larger issues of how modern convenience food bypasses traditional culinary wisdom and the critical importance of how food is sourced and prepared for optimal nutrition.

The urban landscape has swallowed vast swaths of prime farmland across North America.

The Prepper's Guide to Foraging is not a plant identification guide in the traditional sense. It is instead a guide to using plants to supplement other means of food production and subsistence living. Author David Nash believes that there is not enough land available to support a large-scale return to the hunter-gatherer lifestyle in the event of a large-scale disaster, but that botanical knowledge does provide an edge to the well prepared.
This book advocates the acquisition of knowledge to allow its reader to safely identify, harvest, and use common North American plants. Wild plants can provide shelter, material, medicine, and food to help the reader extend stored food as well as create items that may be otherwise unavailable during a crisis.
Twenty-five easily identified plants common to the United States are described and illustrated with notations for their common usage. Each plant described in this book comes with one recipe for food as well as detailed instructions for at least one alternative use. Additional instructions for the preparation of standard medicinal items like tinctures, creams, and infusions are included, as well as botanical guides to help identify other plants. Special emphasis has been added for North American trees.
