Workshop comitted to reconciliation and reuse. We analyse the properties and culinary possibilities of the unjustly called “weeds”, which are nothing more than wild species made available to anyone who dares to change the supermarket for the mountains. Traditionally associated with rural gastronomy, they can become a real delicacy.
