Update: 4/11/16 A message from Pascal Baudar:
I just wanted to let everyone know that my book “The New Wildcrafted Cuisine was released 2 weeks ago. It is packed with information on what you can do with wild edibles – 432 pages and over 500 photos with step by step. The price is very low right now ($27) instead of $40 on amazon.
If you’re interested in regional wild food (Southern California), I think you should consider buying it. It’s what I teach in many of my classes and much more! How to make wild beers, wines, homemade vinegars, use of local seeds, fermentation, making wild sodas and infusions, etc… Although not a plant identification book, it also has A LOT of photos of plants I use.

Have a wonderful day and I look forward to see you soon!
