Giveaway! The Illustrated Wild Foods Recipe Calendar!
After falling so in love with the art and recipes in The Illustrated Wild Foods Recipe Calendar, I contacted the creator, Christina of Nettletown and Foraged & Found Edibles to see if she'd be interested in doing a calendar giveaway through my blog. Whatever I said - it worked!
I first discovered Foraged and Found without realizing it- when I bought fiddleheads from them this past spring. I came across Christina's blog about a month and a half ago, via Fat of the Land and instantly fell in love. I bought three copies of her calendar right away. She and her partner sell their calendars and foraged foods at the Sunday farmers market in my neighborhood, and she also sells via her Etsy store. I do sound a bit like a creepy secret stalker, considering that we've never actually met!
The calendar features 18 recipes, 12 different foraged foods (native to Washington), and gorgeous illustrations by Emily Counts for each month. Mine is going up in my kitchen, where I will hopefully be able to avoid sloshing food and dirty dish water all over it!
If you're interested in winning yourself or someone else a copy of this lovely, lovely calendar- all you need to do is comment on this entry- telling me where you'd hang it! I will randomly pick a winner next Tuesday, December 22nd around 3PM Seattle (Pacific Standard) time, and announce it here.
