Did you know this?

The history of us humans reveals that we are foragers (the hunter-gatherer type). Therefore, eating the wild is part of human design. Less than a hundred years ago it was crucial for human survival to have the knowledge and the manual skills to store summer harvest to keep it edible throughout harsh Nordic winters. 

Our ancestors foraged and used at least 100 plants depending on habitat. How many do you know and use? Substituting ‘conventional’ herbs or vegetables with their wild counterparts will turn your old favorites into something new, upgrading your sense of taste. Learning to use wild herbs in cooking will also introduce completely new flavor combinations. You are walking in the footsteps of your ancestors.

“Many people blow their dandelions in the air, but I love them! I believe they are pure, strong medicine from flower to root.”

– Chef Sami
