Incredible. The sheer amount of species reminds me of the gargouillou that Michel Bras made famous at his restaurant in Aubrac, inspired by his runs through the country side when plants were in full bloom.
Thanks for that…I’d not heard of Bras’ Gargouillou! I wonder if he was also inspired by the traditional multi-species dishes of the Mediterranean countries (often over 50 plants) like I was and as documented in my book Around the World in 80 plants!

…and a little recipe from my first world record salad with 363 different plants in 2003!
