Your book looks interesting too. The speaker was Tama Mastuoka Wong and they had a copy of the book I got to flip through after hearing her speak. I went on a wild foods walk with my husband about a year ago, too, which kinda got me interested. That, and my habit of picking lambsquarters around town and sauteing them up.
Is this the book you found? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/134727 7208/foraging-and-feasting-a-field-gui de-and-wild-food?ref=live. I recently bought a foraging book which isn't nearly as beautiful, but it's UK-specific and that's what drew me in.
That's too bad it wasn't as enlightening as one might expect a TED (or even a TEDx) event to be, but at least you had a nice day with your MiL.

I had a nice day with my MIL, discovered a book on foraging foods that I'd like to get my hands on. Where I went to watch it, it was part of a sustainability fair, and I had fun talking to a woman who arranges green burials - I would love to be allowed to rot after my death. Otherwise, I found it interesting, but mostly heard facts and points of view that were already familiar to me. And left hungry!
