I enjoy reading the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) online and see that alot of information is being made available on foraging and the benefits of searching for wild foods in our community. This week’s edition of Good Food in the SMH focussed on foraging in Australia by chefs.
Have a look out for wild foods such as:
* Native violets
* Nettles (they seem to grow everywhere!)
* Warrigal Greens
* Sow Thistle (In Abruzzo we call these “Cascigne”)
* Wild Mustard
* Dandelion leaves and roots
Read the full article here, a great read and I have listed restaurants they recommend as well who practice foraging ..
