Taste the Wild Recipes and stories from Canada by Lisa Nieshchlag and Lars Wentrup [©Murdoch Books]


Canada – the country on so many of our bucket lists – has wilderness on a grand scale. For those who have visited this book will invoke memories, and for those planning a trip it will perhaps provide another dimension to consider.

Who doesn't dream of leaving everyday life behind and really experiencing nature with an adventure in the wilderness... and a delicious campfire supper to round off a perfect day?

Enjoy the beauty and stillness of breathtaking shots, taken on location in the National Parks of Vancouver and Banff, of the lakes, cascading waterfalls, rivers, canyons, mountains and deep, green, tranquil forests for which Canada is renowned.

This is the stunning natural backdrop for recipes and short extracts from Charles Dickens, Margaret Atwood, Chris Czajkowski and Anne Michaels inspired by Canada's incredible landscapes.

Whether it's fluffy blueberry pancakes with maple syrup, or tender salmon fillet on a cedarwood board, hearty campfire stew with craft beer or the
unique national dish of Canada, poutine, these ingredients and recipes evoke bounty, simplicity, campfires and wilderness.
