Forest + Home: Cultivating an Herbal Kitchen (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Connect with nature through your kitchen, no matter the size or location. Food that feeds and heals the body; a book that inspires and nourishes the soul.

From certified herbalist, cook, and nature lover Spencre McGowan comes Forest + Home, a collection of healthy recipes, life stories, illustrations, and stunning photos to help readers understand the healing powers of nature, whether in a cabin in the woods, a camper van, or within the comfort of their own kitchen in an urban jungle.

This nature-infused cookbook is divided down into two sections, "forest" and "home," with a dedicated section on herbalism including their medicinal properties, how to safely source herbs, what to use them for, and how to make them taste amazing. The book will feature simple techniques for using herbs to liven up your health and well-being by making your food feel like magic in recipes such as:

Nettle Pasta

Rose Petal Lemonade

Black Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Stuffed Edible Flowers

Through her gorgeous photography, McGowan conveys a visceral sense of place of the mountains in Montana along with the shores of Maine and Nantucket. Personal anecdotes of her travels and interactions with nature and 60 to 70 delicious, healing dishes makes Forest + Home the perfect love letter to our environment, encouraging us to reflect on the things we feel when we are connected to nature and the things we take home with us. The book will also include a foreword by bestselling author and actress Hilarie Burton Morgan.
