Edible Wild - S1E1: Foraging 101
Edible Wild is back for a second season - join culinary anthropologist, Nithiya Laila, as she picks, catches and digs her way through Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, China, Thailand and Indonesia - for some very surprising ingredients. From burrowing crabs in Guangzhou, to mysterious edible fungi in Seoul, and fishy-smelling tea leaves Taipei, Nithiya finds out foraging is not just a hobby, it is a passion - and a way of life. And it brings a fundamentally different attitude to food and the eco-system. In her journeys, Nithiya will be joined by local experts whose knowledge of the native treats will prove invaluable as she cooks up tasty dishes with her foraged items.
