Fiona Falconer used to be a documentary film maker, and today she and her husband, Malcolm, are pioneering artisans and foragers whose Wild About food company is one of the most vivid new arrivals on the culinary scene.
But, she is also a great writer and communicator, with an aphoristic style. Consider this: “We very much believe in local economy: without it, the people have no power and the land has no voice.”
The land has no voice. Wow! What a powerful sentiment and statement. And yet it is precisely the work of people like the Falconers that actually does give the land a voice and, when you taste their scrummy relishes and pestos and syrups, you will find that the land can sing like Maria Callas or like Joni Mitchell or like Lorraine Hunt Lieberson. The voice is strong and powerful and beautiful, and Wild About foods have perfect pitch: they put harmony and melody into your cooking.
