“Wildman” Steve Brill educates cooks on how to use these foraged foods in everyday meals, whether sprinkled on a salad or baked into a delicious dish.
North Kingstown, RI (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
A living legend, “Wildman” Steve Brill takes listeners on a lively and entertaining tour through the Northeastern United States as he shares tips on foraging in densely populated areas like New York’s Central Park and rural areas throughout New England. In Hen of the Woods & Other Wild Foods and Medicines we follow the seasons; chickweed in the springtime, the first mushrooms of summer, sundry berries throughout Central Park in autumn, and roots and nuts to eat all winter long.
Brill shares the medicinal and culinary uses of plants, and provides their historical background. “Wildman” Steve Brill educates cooks on how to use these foraged foods in everyday meals, whether sprinkled on a salad or baked into a delicious dish. And perhaps most importantly, Brill says, “you’ll never pay $7.99 for cherries again once you learn to locate them in the wild to pick yourself.”
Hen of the Woods & Other Wild Foods and Medicines: A Guided Tour Including Folklore, by Steve Brill, is read by Steve Brill with additional narration by Susan Boyce.
