One of the most curious substances I have noticed in plants is the sap of the choko (chayote) fruit. It is almost like a volatile superglue, when spread thinly between pieces of paper, and yet it is edible (when we eat the fruit).P.

Dear Henriette,Thanks for joining us.As an ethnobotanist, I have been interested for a long time in how plant leaves are used as edible wrappings for various kinds of food, using various cooking methods, and in diverse cuisines. It is probably one of the most ancient forms of food preparation. Looking closely at the physical and sensory properties of leaf wrappings might provide interesting clues for novel synthetic products... and might also lead to ways of incorporating these traditional materials into modern food systems (my preferred outcome!)Cheers, Peter
