Wild Food and Cuisine

Wild-food and cultivated plants are found everywhere on the globe alongside human civilizations. They follow our footsteps impeccably, as humans create niches for them to grow through disturbance and careful cultivation. In return, they provide the life force needed to do our work, while we enjoy taste sensations of creative cuisine.

This presentation offers perspectives from two women who are passionate about sustainable food pathways in both pristine environments and in our backyards. We explore the ethics of gathering, learn about essential nutrients, and how cuisine with wild foods boosts our vitality, provides our medicine, and feeds our souls.
