Chock full wild plants, backyard and healing herbs, berries and blossoms, along with recipes, preservation techniques, medicinal uses, culinary history and magical lore! I add new recipes each season. Eventually, the book will complete its transformation into a real live hard copy cookbook. Cookbook Patrons will receive a free digital download of the completed book. These seasonal recipe previews give you a chance to try out some of these recipes now - and give me a chance to work out the kinks for the future cookbook! NOTE: New patrons you can download the book link on any post tagged or titled New Recipes Are Up! You'll also find more recipes in patreon posts here as well, these will be included in the final digital book.

As an E-Cookbook Patron, you'll not only receive digital access to the Wildcrafting E-Cookery Book"  but recipe previews for what will eventually become a separate Gather Cookbook. Served with a dollop of history and spiced with the folklore of ancestral food magic it explores the sacred cuisine of the great goddesses of antiquity. There will be all manner of delicious offerings once laid on temple altars and consumed in her seasonal feasts - like honey cakes, date cakes, fruit & nut cakes, sweet buns, cookies, and cheesecakes (many filled with ancient grains, seeds, wild and magical herbs, blossoms and forest berries!) as well as traditional libations like herb-infused wines, beers, mead, spiked floral milks sweetened with honey, as well dishes of wild greens and fresh cheeses. From the British Isles, Europe, Russia, the Asian Steppes, Persia, and beyond, these recipes are a guide to celebrating the magical foods and feasts of the goddess, weaving storytelling, ritual, plant and food magic together in enchanting recipes and menus for each season.

So many condiments and spices beloved to my cooking (and therefore found in so many recipes) probably aren’t in your cupboard. And as you receive the Gather Cookbook as part of your $10.00 Patron Reward it makes sense to create videos that will help you harvest the herbs and prepare the condiments one needs for creating a little wildcrafted “cuisine”.   I’ll show you what to harvest each season and how to preserve it for your pantry -and much more besides! Note: $10.00 patrons also receive the Gather Cookbook previews.

About Gather Victoria


Gather Victoria weaves plant lore, food history, and magical folklore into enchanting recipes & menus that celebrate the bounty of each season. Featuring the ancestral plants at the heart of our oldest & most sacred food traditions, Gather seeks a deeper spiritual connection to nature through the food we eat.

Nearly ten years ago Gather began with a mission to celebrate the old ways of honoring and living in harmony with the earth. I'm filled with such gratitude that this message resonates with so many of you, your support has gifted me the joy of creating and sharing even more wild food, herbal recipes, goddess traditions, and magical inspiration than I ever dreamed possible! 

By far the most consistent request Gather receives is for a cookbook so here on Patreon, I’m doing my very best to bring one to you.  I've created literally hundreds of pages of recipes and plant profiles over the past few years. Recipes are posted on the Patreon site and in the cookbook drafts which you can download as pdf previews. I release and update these editions season to season, as I go along. The cookbooks are still very much in draft form - so please forgive the typos, bad formatting, etc. I'm very much in need of a designer and an editor! 

For those unfamiliar with the Patreon platform, it takes the tradition of being “a patron of the arts” and combines it with crowdfunding i.e. Kickstarter or Indiegogo. But instead of funding a specific project with one lump sum, Patreon allows "patrons" to donate small amounts of money on a monthly basis to support the work of people they enjoy and believe in. Those who donate are usually rewarded with Patreon Rewards as a gesture of thanks for their contribution. 

Whether you become a patron or not, I'm so proud to be part of a growing community that cares deeply about reconnecting with the ancestral foods, seasonal cycles, and healing wisdom of our mother the earth. May many blessings find you and your loved ones! 

Warmly,
Danielle XO
