Award-winning food writer and chef Didi Emmons
presents a slideshow featuring 25 off-the-beatentrack
herbs, greens, and foraged foods easily found
or cultivated in Boston’s climate. Didi also profiles
the eccentric, sustainable lifestyle of farmer Eva
Sommaripa ’63, whose 2-acre organic farm grows
unusual herbs and greens exclusively for Boston’s top
chefs. It was Eva who taught Didi to love these plants,
and inspired her to write Wild Flavors, a seasonal
cookbook celebrating Eva and her herbs.
