Sunny Savage - Maui, Hawai'i.

"What do you think that your ancestors ate? There's no one on the planet who doesn't have ancestors sustaining themselves using wild foods. It's part of our shared human experience."

we harvested:

  • java plums
  • false awa flowers (Piper auritum) - long white flowers (root beer smell)
  • yellow butterfly ginger rhizome
  • oriental hawskbeard
  • wild begonia

in the kitchen:

  • strained java plum juice
  • Spanish needles ground into powder - for teeth
  • boiled yellow butterfly ginger rhizome + false awa into syrup


If you happen to be on Maui, don't miss the chance to have a wild meal served out of Sunny's latest project, successfully funded on Kickstarter - the "Savage Kitchen" food truck!
