The Improvisational Cookbook is a collection of recipes which use edible wild plants as ingredients and which are invented by the participants of my foraging workshops and interactive installations.
During workshops in open-air, public spaces, we walk and map the edible wild plants of the area, and identify their culinary and medicinal uses to come up with improvisational recipes.
The gallery adaptation of the game is built on a card game. Players are asked to pick three Edible Wilds cards randomly, read the information about those plants on the first pages of the cookbook if needed, and come up with ideas of food or drinks that could be made out of those plants.
The improvisational recipes become part of a collection that will be available later as open-source.
