Who doesn't dream of leaving everyday life behind and really experiencing nature with an adventure in the wilderness... and a delicious campfire supper to round off a perfect day? The awe-inspiring photographs in Taste the Wild are a stunning backdrop for the moreish recipes within the pages. Split into four chapters, Lisa and Lars start with In Search of Space, which urges you to live your day offline, reconnecting with nature and your everyday actions – after all, the best experiences are when you live in the moment, sipping a Berry latte and tucking into some French toast with lemon sugar. The chapter Limitless Freedom is all about the exploration: share a Pan-baked Bannock pizza with friends over dinner and snack on some Beaver Bites during the day, which are dusted in cinnamon sugar after frying. Go Your Own Way is for recipes on the road: Lobster rolls, Ink-black halibut burgers and Iced tea with cranberries. Lastly, Blissful Solitude is all about recipes that you can eat under the stars, from Warm grilled vegetable salad and Onion campfire bread with Cajun spice butter, to Roast beef with smashed potatoes Maple cheesecake with strawberries.

Taste the Wild is a cookbook that reflects Canada’s heart and soul, bringing a sense of adventure into our kitchens.
