An authoritative and beautifully illustrated book on wild food and foraging by one of the leading experts.
‘I can safely say that if I hadn’t picked up this book some twenty years ago I wouldn’t have eaten as well, or even lived as well, as I have. It inspired me then and it inspires me now’ – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstal
Wild food is all around us, growing in our hedgerows and fields, along river banks and seashores, even on inhospitable moorland. In Roger Phillips and Martyn Rix’s Wild Food, hundreds of these plants are clearly identified, with colour photography and a detailed description.
This definitive guide also gives us fascinating information on how our ancestors would have used the plant as well as including over 100 more modern recipes for delicious food and drinks. From berries, herbs and mushrooms to wild vegetables, salad leaves, seaweed and even bark, this book will inspire you to start cooking with nature’s free bounty.
