Extend the life of your Christmas trees, by eating them instead of throwing them out!
Evergreen trees are pillars of the winter – through extreme temperatures across the most bitter terrains, they stand tall and thriving, resilient in the face adversity. However, as the festive season draws to a close, these comforting conifers can often be found lining the streets, cast off and disused with wilted branches dotted across dustbins.
How to Eat Your Christmas Tree is a cookbook brought to you from the sold-out supper club of the same name, which explores the unsung edible heroes of our forests – the humble Christmas trees and their evergreen friends! As well as recipes for cooking with pine, fir and spruce this book also encourages reflection around food waste and resourcefulness in an age of deforestation and climate crisis and asks how we might be able to celebrate nature in an alternative way.
