@Regranned from @chestnutschoolherbs - Looking for a good plant ID book for your Bioregion? Or a reputable guide to Foraging in your area? Check out our recent... blog post: The Best Regional Books for Plant Identification and Foraging Wild Foods and Herbs. 🌿💚🌿
If you’ve ever felt frustrated trying to choose a reliable field guide to take foraging with you, you’re not alone. There are heaps of books on the subject, and the selection can be dizzying. It’s truly important—you might even say a matter of life and death—to make solid choices in this department. To give you a hand, we cozied up in the Chestnut library and got studious, reviewing all the regional wild food and medicine books we could get our hands on, and checking each one for botanical accuracy and attention to detail. The best are queued up here, and there’s a little something for everyone, from bright-eyed beginners to seasoned foragers and plant enthusiasts.
🌿💚🌿
The books we feature are fairly specific; they dial in on bioregions throughout North America and are tailored to help you safely identify plants and forage wild food and medicine right where you live. (Link in profile or google Blog Castanea). .

Thank you #thehuntingtonlibrary and gift shop for hosting a book signing for the #UglyLittleGreens book today. I met the most amazing people and had the most aw...esome conversations about #nature and #food. We hosted an interesting mishmosh #family class about #foodstyling and #foraging and #cooking. The kids and parents worked hard and produced some amazing food and photos. We made a modified #recipe from the book. Savory root vegetable cheescakes.The book is available on Amazon and support local bookstores, too. They can order it for you. #savorypies #cookbook #author #photography #kidsart #funthingstodoinLA #transitionalgastronomy #family #uglylittlegreensbook #losangeles

Hi hi Facebookians,

This Saturday, November 18th, I'm teaching my last class of the year at The Huntington Library for the Fantastic Forager's series. It's open... to ages 7 and up and we'll do a little foraging around The Huntington Ranch and then try our hand at food photography and styling. Click the link below to sign up. I'll be doing a book signing that day at the bookstore, as well. I hope to see your shiny faces there! http://bit.ly/HuntingtonForage

One of my most favorite foraging times of the year...the in-between time with aromatic and bitter flavors, summer fading into fall. Time to infuse everything. I...'ll be developing and posting some holiday recipes this month so stay tuned. Any requests for interesting sides, desserts or mains? #juniper #pinyonpine #wildfood #forage #cookbook #recipes #uglylittlegreensbook #UglyLittleGreens #holiday #cooking #cheflife
