The Forager Chef's Book of Flora: Recipes and Techniques for Edible Plants from Garden, Field & Forest

By Alan Bergo

In The Forager Chef’s Book of Flora you’ll find the exotic to the familiar―from Stinging Nettle Soup to Spruce Tip Panna Cotta to Heirloom Tomato and Purslane Panzanella – with Chef Bergo’s unique blend of easy-to-follow instruction and out-of-this-world inspiration.

Over the past fifteen years, chef Alan Bergo has become one of the most exciting and resourceful culinary voices, with millions seeking his guidance through his wildly popular website and video tutorials. Bergo’s inventive culinary style is defined by his encyclopedic curiosity and his abiding, root-to-flower passion for both wild and cultivated plants.

The Forager Chef’s Book of Flora demonstrates how understanding the different properties and growing phases of roots, stems, leaves and seeds can inform your preparation of something like the head of an immature sunflower – as well as the lesser-used parts of common vegetables, like broccoli or aubergine. As a society, we’ve forgotten this type of old-school knowledge, including many brilliant culinary techniques that were born of thrift and necessity. For our own sake and that of our planet, it’s time we remembered. And in the process, we can unlock new flavors from the abundant landscape around us.
