René Redzepi's new app makes finding edible eats possible anywhere

Renowned chef René Redzepi is known not just for his cooking, but also his ability to find wild produce that is often difficult to find. He has decided to translate his foraging knowledge into an app called Vild Mad, which allows users to identify types of edible plants in different environments and through various seasons. The chef's goal is to get people to not just forage for fun, but actually attain it as a permanent life skill.

The app is available and has information on multiple places around the world. Users who live by the ocean to those near a forest will be able to get access to a foraging guide. There is even a section for those who live in cities—the app tells users about food such as wild strawberries. It invites users to search, smell, find and eat food they would have trouble discovering on their own. There are even cooking recipes available.

Redzepi believes that foraging is the best way to get to know nature and as significant of a skill as literacy. This app is just one of the ways he aims to get the rest of the world on board with foraging.
