Cooking with Nettles 101 Ways by Marcus Harrison Book PDF Summary
In some parts of the world members of the nettle family are used as a common food, cooked in similar ways to spinach. From Nepal and Northern India, to the Horn of Africa and country folk of Italy, Romania, and Estonia there are still traditions of using nettles for food. In Britain use of nettles is largely within the foraging community, or by chefs looking for an edge over their competitors. Not all nettle greens are equal when it comes to quality, and the recipes allow you to experiment with nettles in a variety of cooking styles and get to know nettle greens as an ingredient. The recipes are based on single person portions so you can learn how to cook nettles without committing large amounts of time, and money on ingredients. Cooking with Nettles is the first comprehensive English language nettle cookbook. The author is one of the UK's best-known foraging authorities having had an interest in wild food plants for nearly forty years and teaching wild food enthusiasts about the subject since 2004.
