American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters and Fields. It's probably no surprise that my favorite chapters are on maple syrup and foraging in Quebec. My roots go deep in the rural Northeast, and it's been too long since I've savored a daylily salad at the end of a summer day. Part travelogue, part basic science text, part recipe book, all entrancing.
