About

An immersive journey through the culture and cuisine of one Japanese town, its forest, and its watershed--where ducks are hunted by net, saké is brewed from the purest mountain water, and charcoal is fired in stone kilns--by an American writer and food stylist who spent years working alongside artisans

Water, Wood & Wild Things invites readers to see what goes into making a fine bowl, a cup of tea, or a harvest of rice, and introduces the masters who dedicate their lives to this work. Part travelogue, part meditation on the meaning of work, and full of her own beautiful drawings and recipes, Hannah Kirshner's refreshing book is an ode to place and its people, as well as profound examination of what it means to sustain traditions and find purpose in cultivation and craft.
