About the book: "Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook" celebrates our local bounty and traditional food ways. The book features beautiful, instructive botanical illustrations and delicious recipes. The effort weaves together Dina's 30 years of passionate investigations into wild-plant identification, foraging and cooking with Wendy's deft artistic skills honed over 15 years as a botanical illustrator.

For the past three years we have been writing, drawing, designing and testing the recipes for this book. The result is an abundance of recipes and illustrations that celebrate wild plants and creative ways to bring them into our lives. We hope you will join us in this tasty culinary adventure.
