The Wild Table
- Seasonal Foraged Food and Recipes
by Connie Green and Sarah Scott
The Wild Table is an invitation into the romantic, mysterious, and delicious world of exotic, foraged food. Once overlooked by culinary aficionados, in the last decade the celebration of organic foods, farmer's markets, and artisanal producers has dovetailed with a renewed passion for wild delicacies. From four-star restaurants to local markets, more and more wild food is appearing and gaining star status. On the forefront of the foraging movement is longtime "huntress" Connie Green, who sells her gathered goods across the country and to Napa Valley's finest restaurants like French Laundry along with long-time chef and culinary consultant Sarah Scott. In The Wild Table, they take readers with them into the woods and then back to the kitchen with wild delights.
"A useful, essential, full-of-joy book with delectable recipes, The Wild Table brings me back to my youth, my family, and our Sunday meal of nettle (ortie) soup and field mushrooms (rosé) that my mother served with her chicken with cream sauce."
-Jacques Pépin, author of Jacques Pépin New Complete Techniques
"Connie has really opened my eyes to the endless possibilities of foraged foods and wild mushrooms. Her knowledge and passion have shaped me over the years to be a better chef, an inspiration she has stirred in countless other chefs around the country. The Wild Table truly delivers her amazing devotion to all things wild."

"I'm crazy for The Wild Table because it goes right to the source of all good edibles-the plants that grow happily all by themselves outside the garden walls where they figure out how to live with no help from us humans at all. I have long loved eating wild foods, but this book goes far beyond a causal love affair. It's a work born out of deep commitment, passion, and enthusiasm for the edible wild plant world, a world we'd all do well to know much more about. Kudos to both authors!"
-Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America's Farmers markets
