Traditional and modern methods of gathering and cooking vegetables. Both wild and cultivated food products are described and illustrated, and recipes are included. Today there is a desire to go out into nature and gather a variety of vegetables from lowlands and forest areas. This book considers what may be found, noting endangered species, and how to cook the others. As the proverb says "When food is eaten the people are 'ora', alive and well".
