The Forager Chef’s Book of Flora: Recipes and Techniques for Edible Plants (Autographed)
Our talented chef, Alan Bergo, published a book of recipes and techniques that show the versatility and beauty of foraging in the Midwest. “Watching wild plants grow and searching for new edible parts of familiar plants has transformed my culinary style, similar to how the nose-to-tail, grass-fed, and organic movements have affected the way chefs consider animals.
Understanding the properties of leaves, stems, roots, and flowers can inform how you cook something exotic (like the heads of immature sunflowers) as well as how you adapt the same techniques to cook something mundane (such as a broccoli stem or Brussels sprout). Now when I see squash in the garden, instead of waiting for them to ripen, I harvest some while they are still green and unripe, as well as the shoots, flowers, and seeds during the growing season, all before the first squash is ‘ready to eat.’
As a society we’ve forgotten this type of old-school knowledge. . . . For our own sake, and that of our planet, it’s time we remembered. That idea, in a nutshell, is part of what this book is all about.”

Your product is vacuum sealed and frozen to preserve quality and to provide a wholesome product. Depending on the season and the amount ordered your products may arrive frozen or slightly thawed. As long as the meat is cool to the touch you may cook or refreeze with confidence.
Refrigerate or freeze your order upon arrival. Refrigerated vacuum sealed meat products will hold for 1 week if properly refrigerated at 34 degrees F or lower. Once the vacuum seal is opened use the product within two to three days. If you will freeze your product, set your freezer as cold as possible–preferably under zero degrees F for the best results. Up to six months is the standard storage time for frozen meats.
For best results thaw in the sealed packaging overnight in your refrigerator. Leaving the meat in the original packaging during thawing preserves the flavor and natural juices. The meat can also be thawed in the original packaging in cold water. Keep the water cold by changing every 30 minutes until the meat is thawed. We do not recommend using a microwave to defrost meat.
