Enjoy variety - the biosphere cookbook by Edition Lammerhuber

Take Austria's seven biosphere parks, locally coloured recipes full of organic produce, a handful of rarely used herbs and spices and have it all prepared by young, ambitious and upcoming cooks.

But don't forget to hire a photographer who can capture the excitement on film and make sure all the culinary pleasure looks its best and have some knowledgeable biologists comment on the whole shebang. Last but not least, distil it all into fine glossy paper and serve all 96 pages to the hungry audience – et voila the world’s first biosphere park cookbook. Enjoy!

The event coincided with the 'Year of diversity 2010'. The idea called for students of the Wienerwald and Grosses Walsertal biosphere parks to document the value of diversity in their immediate surroundings by using plants in the kitchen. It was a smashing success by all acounts.

And what better reason for the national committee of the UNESCO 'Man and Biosphere' (MAB) research programme to publish a book about Austria's biosphere parks, in which the diversity of nature is reflected in culinary genius.

Locally sourced recipes and essential information about habitats, animals, plants and people are brought together in a manner that emphasises the importance of biodiversity and why it is one of the key concepts for the near future, touching upon matters of our quality of life as a whole.

In keeping with the MAB-motto 'Biosphere parks are universities for sustainable development', the publishers cooperated with the Landesberufsschule Waldegg.

The dishes were chosen by star chefs of the LBS Waldess from a wide selection of recipes that were submitted by students as well as family recipes and recipes by local restaurants.
