“I call these two the Wild Foods Dream Team. It would be hard to find a more skilled, enthusiastic, and fun pair of teachers with intimate knowledge of Western slope edible and medicinal plants. Not only do they understand the health and nutrition benefits of cooking with wild plants. They also know how to make them delicious!”
