The Wild Table
- Online Only
The Wild Table is an invitation to the romantic, mysterious and delicious world of exotic foraged food. The last decade has seen a renewed passion for wild delicacies, and on the forefront of this movement is longtime "huntress" Connie Green, who sells her gathered goods across the country and to Napa Valley's finest chefs, including Thomas Keller and Michael Mina. The Wild Table takes readers into the woods and along the roadside, featuring more than forty wild mushrooms, plants and berries – from prize morels and chanterelles to fennel, ramps and huckleberries. Delectable recipes, such as Bacon-Wrapped Duck-Stuffed Morels and Homemade Mulberry Ice Cream, show how to find and prepare each ingredient. With gorgeous photography, stories of foraging in the natural world and a foreword by Thomas Keller, this book will appeal to any serious gatherer and transport the armchair forager, bringing the abundant flavors around us to life. Hardcover; 368 pages.
