Chin, who writes the "Wild Edibles" column for the New York Times, goes looking for love, blackberries, and wild garlic in this wildly uneven, yet warmly exhilarating memoir. Trekking through Central Park and other urban beaten paths and backyards, Chin leads us on a journey of discovery as she searches for the tender shoots poking through cement cracks and hardy wild plants resisting winter's bite.-- Source other than Library of Congress.

Hard to categorize this work - part biography, part cookbook, part how-to, part love story. As a foodie and part-time forager, I understand the joy of making a meal from items that I have found - in the fields, yards and undeveloped areas in my life. Not quite sure who to recommend this to ... but I kept reading to the end.

Such a neat book! Not a how-to book on urban foraging but a story of her adventures and life while foraging. I can't say that I will start searching my neighborhood for food but I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
