“Eat Wild Tasmanian” explores 138 edible native Tasmanian plants. It shows you what they look like, what part to harvest – when and how…it tells you how to grow them in your garden…and there are over 100 easy to follow recipes for using the produce.
John Gibson from Plants of Tasmania Nursery has contributed distribution maps and growing notes for all the plants. Sally Wise, arguably Tasmania’s best known cook; and Tino Carnevale of Gardening Australia wrote the forewords, and there are about 400 colour photos of plants, berries and cooked dishes.
I’m really proud to have written this first comprehensive guide into Tasmanian edible plants. Fuller’s Publishing have published it, and the book has been beautifully designed by Julie Hawkins. I’m also both proud and humbled by the support of over 100 people, who assisted through a crowd funding campaign to get it printed here.
So, Eat Wild Tasmanian, is about Tasmanian plants, written by a 5th generation Tasmanian, printed published and distributed by Tasmanians.
It is available through Fullers in Hobart, Petrach’s in Launceston, Not Just Books in Burnie, Lemon Tree Providores in Wynyard, and many other outlets. RRP $55 hard cover 200pp
Eat Wild Tasmania was launched on 19th October in Hobart, and the 25th October in Burnie.
