The fields of Oratia are once again full with onion weed. Yes it is a weed, but it is edible and tastes very nice too. In fact when I discovered that I could eat it I stopped planting spring onions in the veggie garden, and started foraging instead. The weed has pretty white flowers and a strong spring onion smell. You can eat the flowers, the leaves, the stems, the bulbs... basically everything except the dirt!
And now for more book reviews: here there is a lovely one by Emma McCleary from The Booksellers New Zealand Blog, and you can win a book on their FB page (you got until Wed.)
Another article was in the Aucklander, you can read it here, and Kazuyo wrote about the book launch in her blog (sorry, this is in Japanese). And on a completely different subject, if you are in Auckland and interested in Vegan chocolate cakes, check out this Slow Food Waitakere class!
