Aimez vos plantes invasives

Enjoy Your Invasive Plants

Eat Them!


F. Couplan

Edition 2015

The author sketches 57 invasive plants from Western Europe on separate sheets. He describes their past and present uses, mainly their culinary virtues, and proposes recipes for 36 of them. From those you meet every day without paying them attention to those whose fruit you have already tasted without knowing them to be invasive (Morus alba with edible berries, Rosa rugosa with hips chock full of vitamin C or Barbary figs and the "Acacia flowers" from which comes the eponymous honey) via edible species close to species commonly used in our food (sorghum, grape, Jerusalem artichoke), you will discover invasive plants with recipes that are as delicious as they are surprising.
