Eating Wild Japan
Tracking the Culture of Foraged Foods, with a Guide to Plants and Recipes

Winifred Bird with illustrations by Paul Poynter

From bracken to butterbur to “princess” bamboo, some of Japan’s most iconic foods are foraged, not grown, in its forests, fields, and coastal waters–yet most Westerners have never heard of them.

In this book, journalist Winifred Bird eats her way from one end of the country to the other in search of the hidden stories of Japan’s wild foods, the people who pick them, and the places whose histories they’ve shaped.
