What did Primitive Man eat? He gathered fruits, berries, nuts, greens and roots from the soil. Herbs were his medicine. If he was quick and cunning he caught a small animal, fish or bird, or would have found a bird's egg.
The exciting recipes contained between these covers have been created by Beverley Southam from Primitive Man's vast outdoor pantry, to solve serious health problems of her family many years ago. There is nothing boring about this fresh, wholesome diet. Savour the the taste of Fresh Tomato Soup, Ceviche (a Mexican dish), Salsas, Marinated Fresh Fruit.
