Kevin Feinstein discusses and signs "The Bay Area Forager"
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes Kevin Feinstein, aka "FeralKevin", to the store to discuss and sign his book, The Bay Area Forager: Your Guide to Edible Wild Plants in the San Francisco Bay Area, on Wednesday, February 25th at 6:30 pm.
Reading this guidebook is like taking a wild foods walk with foraging experts Mia Andler and Kevin Feinstein. It gives practical advice for gathering edible wild plants in the Bay Area in a voice that is friendly and suffused with rich personal knowledge. The authors provide thorough descriptions of where to find each of the region's most readily available plants, and clear instructions for harvesting them responsibly. Large, detailed photographs help readers to identify plants easily. Also included are mouth-watering recipes such as cattail crêpes, cherry laurel cordial, fiddlehead fusilli, and rosehip soup. Ideal for any experience level, The Bay Area Forager invites readers to deepen their relationship with their environment.
Kevin Feinstein is a naturalist, writer, teacher, and founder of the Foraging Society. He has lived for over a decade in the Bay Area and calls it his home. Originally from Tennessee, he grew up with the standard American diet and lifestyle, never having eaten a fruit from a tree until his early twenties. Other than a handful of small but key nature experiences as a child, his knowledge wasn’t learned until adulthood. Having a massive paradigm shift in his twenties, he became interested in studying food, gardening, ecology, sustainability, diet, and natural health. Since then he has been teaching related classes, especially to beginners and children, and constantly learning. He currently organizes classes and advises for Forage SF, as well as offers private classes and workshops on his own.
