Of bears and men

Bears have always held a strange fascination for humans, and Reno Sommerhalder shows us how even the meal plan of bears is similar to that of humankind. The bear researcher and trained chef accompanies bears on their rambles through the last wilderness resorts and captures his encounters in unique images and stories.

The world of author Reno Sommerhalder is not only adventurous but also tasty – his bear recipes are delicious for both humans and bears. He explains how to smoke salmon or how to recognize wild potatoes or chocolate lily, how to prepare asparagus made from fireweed, or how to bake a bear nut cake.

Reno Sommerhalder gives humans a truthful impression of bears via savoury treats.
