In high-end restaurants and in the home, more and more cooks have discovered the joy of using natural, foraged ingredients. But, what few realize is that you don’t necessarily have to go rooting in hedgerows or woodlands to find them. Many of our own gardens contain an abundance of edible and medicinal plants, grown mainly for their ornamental appearance. Most gardeners are completely unaware that what they have actually planted is a rather exotic kitchen garden. The Garden Forager explores more than 40 of the most popular garden plants that have edible, medicinal, or even cosmetic potential, accompanied by recipes, remedies, and interesting facts, and illustrated throughout in exquisite watercolors by Lizzie Harper. This beautifully illustrated book redefines how we look at our gardens and unleashes the unknown potential of everyday plants—making it a must-have for anyone interested in gardening, cooking, or foraging.
