We forget that there is magic in food. We’ve lost an appreciation for how the ingredients we use came to be, how they grew, and where they were cultivated. In short, we’ve lost an appreciation for the earth. But Johnna Holmgren is here to restore that appreciation and help us create an adventurous spirit both in and out of the kitchen. She’s someone who goes straight to the woods behind her home for mushrooms and syrup and heads to her garden for tomatoes and fruits.
Her cookbook is more than just a book―it’s an escape to another realm, a retreat into nature, and a taste of the life she lives.
It brings the woods to a city loft and to the aisles of suburban supermarkets, with more than 80 unique recipes like floraled elderflower quiche, wild blueberry bee pollen scones, garlic scape wreath pasta, and a frothed reishi mushroom latte. Intertwined with photographs of foraging experiments, lush forest scenes, and whimsical illustrations, it will inspire you to form a bond with the earth and the world around you.
