Give Weeds a Chance! Didi Emmons on Earth Eats Radio

Posted By jmccharen On June 7, 2012 @ 9:00 am In Food & Health | Comments Disabled

“I consider ‘weed’ to be a politically incorrect term. There’s no biological definition of the term ‘weed’, it’s really a value judgment.”

That’s the opinion of Harvard scientist Peter Del Tredici, and chef Didi Emmons couldn’t agree more.

In her latest cookbook, Wild Flavors [1], Emmons shares many recipes using “feisty, flavorful, and nutritious” plants formerly known as weeds.

In this episode of Earth Eats Radio, she talks to host Annie Corrigan about a few of them, and how the eccentric farmer Eva Sommaripa taught her to walk on the wild side of the produce aisle.

Her segment starts around 22:30 here [2]; or you can read the entire interview here [3].
