Join professional forager Shawn Dawson on a guided tour of the forests, fields, bogs, barrens, cliffsides and shorelines of Newfoundland. Along the way, you’ll learn to identify more than 50 edible plants—including trees, weeds, berries, and fruit—and how and when to harvest them sustainably.
This is a must-have book for anyone interested in food security, eating locally, and cooking with the freshest possible ingredients. Hundreds of full-colour photographs make Forager’s Dinner a gorgeous and insightful journey into the natural bounty that surrounds us.
Dawson also provides plenty of ideas for preparing and preserving what you pick. Also included are recipes featuring locally sourced wild food from more than a dozen of Newfoundland’s best-known chefs.
Shawn Dawson is a professional forager; his business, Barking Kettle, sells foraged and preserved food to fine dining restaurants in Newfoundland. Shawn is in demand as a leader of foraging tours, and conducts both virtual and in-person workshops on the topic.
