Penned by French chef and writer Jean-François Mallet, Recipes from the Woods: The Book of Game and Forage is a cookbook ode to eating whatever nature gives you. Its 100 recipes are organized by food type, including sections for furred game, feathered game, herbs, snails, and nuts and berries. Whether you're wanting to expand your culinary world beyond what you find at the store or preparing to fend for yourself in a worst-case scenario, it's worthwhile reading.
