Simply Living – A Gathers’ Guide to New Zealand’s Fields, forests and shores
by Gwen Skinner

A guide to the infinite variety of wild foods available in New Zealand – greens, roots, berries, wild and cultivated flowers, shoots, mushrooms, fungi, lichens, as well as seaweeds and unusual off-the-beach food.

In addition to the delightful collection of recipes – some which are centuries old – there are special sections on making wine and other less potent beverages, medicines, cosmetics, household hints, home pickling, sprouting and candying flowers and fruit.

With each plant fully identified and illustrated this book looks at our fields, forests and gardens with a fresh eye and, by implication, issues an important challenge to our preconceived notions about diet and supermarket dependability.
