New Cookbook Teaches How To Cook With Food Found On The Sidewalk
Design collective Spurse plans to publish 'Eat Your Sidewalk', which teaches people how to spot edible plants in their urban environments as a way eat ‘local’.
Design collective Spurse's newest project is the ‘Eat Your Sidewalk‘ experimental cookbook, which teaches people how to forage and cook food found in urban environments. From their Kickstarter page, the group explains their inspiration and purpose:
We asked ourselves, what if eating begins right under your feet wherever you are? As avid foragers and amateur urban ecologists this question hit home when we challenged ourselves to live for a week by foraging our sidewalks– surprisingly it was easy; then we did it with a community — and it caught on as grandmothers, freegans, and foodies joined forces — and now we would like to share our ideas with you via one of the great modern art forms — the cookbook.
