Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Brill follows his Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (And Not So Wild) Places with this specialist volume aimed at cooking found and gathered produce. Stressing the need to forage safely and not eat any plant unless completely certain of its identification and that it's free of pesticides and herbicides, the author explains "what makes wild food special" before describing methods of preparation and food types, winemaking and the wild food seasons. Main courses and desserts are intermingled so much so that it becomes hard to tell whether the ingredient is a main component or an enhancer. Filled with humorous anecdotes and small descriptions, almost every recipe relies on at least one foraged ingredient, though where possible Brill offers health store alternatives (while Monsieur Wildman's French Dressing calls for wild spearmint, he does suggest cultivated mint; unsweetened apple juice can be substituted for wild apples in Spiced Wild Apple Cider). In the end, the book will appeal to those who enjoy foraging in the wild as well as the vegetarian who is not only health- but also environmentally conscious. (Apr.) Forecast: While Brill has had his share of media attention (David Letterman, Dan Rather and Regis and Kathy Lee have all covered him), this book is nonetheless specialist, and its sales will rely heavily on regional promotion and word of mouth.

Library Journal
Brill, the author of an earlier field guide to wild plants, has been conducting "foraging tours" in Manhattan (including Central Park) and throughout greater New York since the mid-1980s. His new book includes dozens of recipes using wild foods, from sassafras and daylily shoots to blue violets and cow parsnips; each entry includes a brief description of the plant as well. Strict vegetarians will be delighted by Brill's recipes; nonvegetarians looking for dishes made with these unusual foods will be disappointed to find so many that call for ingredients like kudzu, lecithin, granules, liquid aminos, and the like (although there are alternatives suggested when possible). For vegetarian and other special collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Best Book Ever on Edible Wild Plant Cuisine

    I'm this book's author and a leading authority on edible and medicinal wild plants, beginning my 20th year of Wild Food and Ecology field walks in and around NYC in 2002 (I'm best-known for having been handcuffed and arrested by undercover park rangers for eating a dandelion in Central Park). Please visit the website I designed, www.wildmanstevebrill.com, for an overview of my work and for excerpts of my books. The Wild Vegetarian Cookbook (Harvard Common Press) is the best guide ever for using wild ingredients in gourmet international recipes. It also includes completely new ways of preparing traditional recipes in healthful ways. For instance, there are vegan, dairy-free and sugar-free ice creams, mock cheeses to use in traditional cheese dishes, and even an omelet you can make without breaking an egg! If you want to learn how to use edible wild herbs, greens, fruits, berries, nuts, seeds, seaweeds, and mushrooms, or learn how to make delicious, healthful vegetarian dishes in new ways, this is the book for you
