GO WILD!

Swedish forager Roland Rittman, who has played a crucial role in supplying some of Scandinavia’s most important restaurants, urges us to reconnect with nature: “Go to the beach or to the woods or to some part of nature, that you have made your own. Kneel on the ground. Humbly bend your head. Take a bite from a rooted plant. Graze as the animal you are – and contemplate, with universal empathy – our critical impact on this wild symphony of existence.” From the third MAD Symposium, GUTS.
