Editorial Reviews

Review

“The way Aussie author Rohan Anderson chronicles his ‘grow, gather, hunt, cook’ lifestyle—complete with arty photos, tips on what to put in your fly-fishing bag and handwritten musings on the deeper meaning of pickling and butchery—you’ll swear he splits his time between Bushwick and the Catskills.”
-Edible Brooklyn
 
This is a thoughtful book with an emphasis on seasonal eating and recipes for the hunter, angler, gardener, and forager.”
-Field & Stream blog
 
“And the man didn't just write the thing; Anderson is also the skillful photographer behind the book's images. For wild food lovers out there this is one book you can't be without.”
-GQ online

About the Author

Rohan Anderson is a modern day food warrior. Raised on a small farm in rural Victoria in south east Australia, Anderson developed not only an affinity for nature, but also an understanding, and appreciation of the role nature plays in providing sustenance. Anderson has taken these lessons into his adult life where he now grows, hunts, fishes, and forages in wild and urban surroundings to feed his family. He also documents his adventures through photography, sharing his recipes, slow food philosophies and, (sometimes contentious) views on his hugely popular blog, Whole Larder Love. Describing himself not as a chef, but rather a family cook, Anderson is influenced by rustic, peasant-style cooking, with minimal fuss involved. It's unlikely that you'll find Anderson at the supermarket; instead he is usually wandering around his backyard garden, strolling through forests and paddocks fossicking for wild mushrooms, and fishing in cool mountain streams.

I bought this book knowing there would not be a lot of new information for me. If you're looking for a book that is an intro to gardening, foraging, and hunting this is not. (As if those skills could be taught in one book) What this is is a great primer on a sustainable food lifestyle. It is far more than just food grown yourself, but food that is delicious! This book has several great recipes. I've tried a couple they were wonderful. I look forward to trying the rest. What this book is is beautiful. The photographs, the typeset, the way the cover is laid out, the quality of the paper stock. Worth the purchase. I could not be happier with it. It will be like a coffee table book in our house.

I respect the author and what he set out to do. Unfortunately, the final product left me lacking.

The problem with this book boils down to three simple facts:

1) The topic itself (gardening, foraging, hunting/fishing) is too ambitious for just 240 pages. There are much better books already published on each (I'll share those recommendations below) -- but those authors focused on just one of the topics, enabling them to provide more detail.

2) The author is a DIY-er (which I admire -- I'm one too) and most of his recipes reflect this. Sure, some of the recipes are delicious -- but nothing really comes across as new. I had the feeling throughout that I'd seen similar recipes before. And this would have been perfectly fine with me had I learned something new from the advice he sprinkles throughout on his pursuits -- but these tips were elementary.

3) It reads like a magazine. By this I mean that it's full of many photographs (beautiful, no doubt -- the author is an exceptionally talented photographer) that often take up the whole page, accompanied by handwritten recipe introductions followed by a typed font for the actual steps. It has an amateurish feel that isn't all that easy for the eyes and mind to process. At times, it felt like I was reading a lengthy ransom note, albeit one about food. It'd make a good coffee table book to stir up conversation among your more squeamish friends -- it's definitely a book that catches your eye, and lends itself to quickly browsing -- but it's probably not something you'll regularly revisit.

Again, I respect the author and the topic he set out to cover. But the execution just wasn't right.

Followed Rohan Andersons blog Wholelarderlove for quite a while, I knew this book was going to be special when he announced it. It needs a good eye to be a good photographer and that brings you down to the details/roots to what you see. As a logic consequence you start questioning yourself about what's going on around you and what role you play. He not just saw what's going on (wrongly), he did something against it, and changed his life more and more. This book is not just a cookbook with amazing images and recipes, no it is also a manual with a bigger picture in mind. A path to follow. He shares his knowledge of how to grow - gather - hunt and cook with you.

The recipes are easy to prepare (if you have got some basic experience with cooking). Down to earth meals prepared from what is mostly available within reach and not traveled half around the globe to finally reach the plate. Im already through all the information in the book and know we can start cooking.
In the meantime I hope Rohan will have the time and passion to write more books he shares with us.

I love the eclectic and un-stuffy way this book was written and assembled. It feels less like a mass produced tome and more like a collection of photos, anecdoets and recipes compiled by a friend as a gift. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in becoming more self-sufficient and more in touch with the land and its gifts of food and forage.

This is one of the loveliest cookbooks I've ever seen or owned. Well-designed and fun, with gorgeous photography. The recipes are a good mix of accessible and exotic.

This is a really beautiful book, but there was not a lot of real information in it. It's mainly a cookbook with great pictures, but if you're interested in hunting/foraging/gardening, you won't pick up any useful tips here.

Very practical...everything from gardening tips to practical recipes. If you can't garden or forage, you can still get your special ingredients at a farmer's market, so be too worried about the availability of ingredients. If you still can't find something, it probably doesn't grow in your area and using would defeat the entire purpose of the book. It's visually interesting to top it all off!
