Have you ever wondered what it takes to survive in the wild? From finding food and building a shelter to navigating through treacherous terrain, survival stories capture the human spirit's resilience and determination. But what if I told you that there's a survival story that goes beyond the basic necessities, one that adds intensely good flavors to the mix? Brace yourself for an extraordinary tale of survival with a culinary twist!

The Beginning of an Extraordinary Journey

Our tale begins with Richard Thompson, an experienced hiker and outdoor enthusiast who embarked on a solo adventure into the heart of the wilderness. Little did he know that this particular trip would test not only his survival skills but also his taste buds! Equipped with only the bare essentials, Richard relied on his knowledge of edible plants and skills honed over years of outdoor expeditions.

Days turned into weeks as Richard foraged for sustenance, embracing the art of survival with each passing moment. He encountered countless challenges, battling harsh weather conditions and navigating through treacherous terrain. But amidst the trials and tribulations, Richard discovered something remarkable - a hidden treasure trove of intensely good flavors!

Culinary Delights in Nature's Pantry

As Richard journeyed deeper into the wilderness, he stumbled upon a variety of edible plants that offered a burst of flavors he never thought possible in such a harsh environment. Each plant had its unique taste profile, ranging from tangy and zesty to sweet and aromatic. Richard's survival story became a gastronomic adventure, as he innovatively incorporated these natural ingredients into his meals.

One of Richard's extraordinary finds was a vibrant yellow flower with a citrusy scent - the lemon blossom. Not only did it add a refreshing twist to his salads, but it also served as a natural source of vitamin C, boosting his immune system in the wild. Richard often reminisces about the lemon blossom's delicate and exotic flavor that provided him with a sense of rejuvenation in this otherwise challenging environment.

Another surprising discovery was the wild garlic, an ingredient that transformed Richard's campfire dinners from mundane to extraordinary. Combining the garlic's pungent flavor with freshly caught fish, Richard crafted simple yet tantalizing dishes that satisfied his hunger and ignited his passion for culinary exploration.

A Gastronomic Miracle in the Wild

Richard's story serves as a testament to the power of human adaptability and resilience. While survival in the wild is a daunting task, his culinary endeavors elevated his experience to extraordinary heights. The flavors he encountered in nature's pantry not only provided him with sustenance but also added an unexpected element of pleasure to his journey.

Surviving in the wild may seem like a battle against the elements, but Richard's story teaches us that there is always room to find joy and satisfaction, even in the most challenging situations. His story inspires us to embrace the wonders of nature, exploring the untamed wilderness not only for survival but also for the intensely good flavors that await.

Richard Thompson's survival story with intensely good flavors reminds us that even in the harshest environments, there is the potential for extraordinary experiences. His culinary journey in the wild serves as a testament to the human spirit's resilience and adaptability, as well as the incredible variety of flavors that nature has to offer. So, the next time you venture into the great outdoors, embrace the taste of survival and let your taste buds guide you to a world of gastronomic miracles.

In this inventive and intensely personal cookbook, the blogger behind the award-winning reveals how she cooked her way out of an untenable living situation, with more than eighty delicious Asian-inspired dishes with influences from around the world.

For Mandy Lee, moving from New York to Beijing for her husband’s work wasn’t an exotic adventure—it was an ordeal. Growing increasingly exasperated with China’s stifling political climate, its infuriating bureaucracy, and its choking pollution, she began “an unapologetically angry food blog,”, to keep herself from going mad.

Mandy cooked because it channeled her focus, helping her cope with the difficult circumstances of her new life. She filled her kitchen with warming spices and sticky sauces while she shared recipes and observations about life, food, and cooking in her blog posts. Born in Taiwan and raised in Vancouver, she came of age food-wise in New York City and now lives in Hong Kong; her food reflects the many places she’s lived. This entertaining and unusual cookbook is the story of how “escapism cooking”—using the kitchen as a refuge and ultimately creating delicious and satisfying meals—helped her crawl out of her expat limbo.

Illustrated with her own gorgeous photography, The Art of Escapism Cooking provides that comforting feeling a good meal provides. Here are dozens of innovative and often Asian-influenced recipes, divided into categories by mood and occasion, such as:

For Getting Out of Bed
Poached Eggs with Miso-Browned Butter Hollandaise
Crackling Pancake with Caramel-Clustered Blueberries and Balsamic Honey

For Slurping
Buffalo Fried Chicken Ramen
Crab Bisque Tsukemen 

For a Crowd
Cumin Lamb Rib Burger
Italian Meatballs in Taiwanese Rouzao Sauce

For Snacking
Wontons with Shrimp and Chili Coconut Oil and Herbed Yogurt
Spicy Chickpea Poppers 

For Sweets
Mochi with Peanut Brown Sugar and Ice Cream
Recycled Nuts and Caramel Apple Cake

Every dish is sublimely delicious and worth the time and attention required. Mandy also demystifies unfamiliar ingredients and where to find them, shares her favorite tools, and provides instructions for essential condiments for the pantry and fridge, such as Ramen Seasoning, Fried Chili Verde Sauce, Caramelized Onion Powder Paste, and her Ultimate Sichuan Chile Oil.
