Living Wild: Gardening, Cooking and Healing with Native Plants of the Sierra Nevada by Alicia Funk and Karin Kaufman had a well attended book signing event at Mowen Solinksy Gallery last week. The local authors were on hand to answer questions, sign books and sample some of the delicious goodies from a few select recipes from the book. My personal favorite was the gourmet sorbet, hand crafted by the good folks at Treats, with Douglass Fir tips. If you’re curious to learn more about this book, you can either order a copy online or stop by the Outside Inn and purchase a book. 100% of the profits from Living Wild will be donated to environmental and cultural preservation in the Sierra Nevada.
