An essential travelling companion

posted 10 October 2013

Bruce Auld’s talk on edible weeds was a big hit at Food & Words. Weed out his book, A Travelling Flora, and keep it in the glovebox so that you can track down supper when you’re on the road.
 
What I love about this book is, that as a reference book, it is filled with interesting information that you can apply to what you see around you. You can learnt to id the roadside flora and take it on overland expeditions so that you have it on hand when you come across something new.
 
I’m more interested in the edible variety of weeds and look forward to some very interesting salads this foraging season.
