The Edible Camino guidebook features 77 wild edible plants and mushrooms found along the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Written by pilgrims, for pilgrims, the pages are packed with detailed plant descriptions, vivid photographs, annotated sketches, nutritional/medicinal information and 50 wild vegan and vegetarian recipes. Compact, lightweight, and highly useful, The Edible Camino is perfect for the traveler's backpack. Not only will it teach you to identify and use the featured wild foods, but it will also open your eyes to the bountiful natural beauty along the trail, connect you to one of the oldest activities known to humankind, and deepen your pilgrimage experience in unexpected ways. It's more than a guidebook—it’s a companion.
Although the book focuses on the Camino Francés in Spain, the majority of the selected species are found abundantly in other parts of Europe, the Mediterranean, and North America, making The Edible Camino an excellent introductory guidebook to wild foods no matter where you walk.
