This site is dedicated to the exploration of edible things! Plants, animals, mushrooms, algae – so many things to explore! We especially focus on answering your questions about ingredients. Especially unfamiliar ones!
I’m John Westfield, a lifelong cooking enthusiast with a special love for strange and underused ingredients. I hope this blog helps open your mind to more of the wonderful edible treasures around us.
We have a crew of assistants, researchers, and writers who help us put together all of the articles on this site. Their hard-work and dedication have payed off. Thank you!
