From seashores and riverbanks to mountains, valleys, and overgrown fields, the beautiful Southeast is rich in wild edibles. Forager, farmer, teacher, and chef Chris Bennett helps you find the most delicious plants – from delectable wild greens, like the often-overlooked sweet, fan-shaped leaves of common mallow to wild hazelnuts, hickory nuts, and fruity black walnuts.
Try making syrup from summer's honeysuckle blooms, simmer a rosehip jam, or pickle some blackberries in vinegar to spark up a savory dish. Whether you venture out on the water for cattail corndogs and wild rice or stay close to home for the candy-crunch of hackberry fruits, Southeast Foraging will help you find an abundance of wild plants right outside your door. With this savvy guide you'll learn what to look for, when and where to look, and how to gather in a responsible way.
Chris Bennett is a forager, writer, teacher, and trained chef. He is the cheesemonger for Whole Foods in Birmingham, Alabama, and enjoys working with top chefs in the area to provide wild edibles for their restaurants.
