Look out of your window, walk down a country path or go to the beach in Great Britain, and you are sure to see many wild species that you can take home and eat. From dandelions in spring to sloe berries in autumn, via wild garlic, samphire, chanterelles and even grasshoppers, our countryside is full of edible delights in any season.
John Wright is the country's most foremost expert in foraging and brings decades of experience, including as forager at River Cottage, to this seasonal guide. Month by month, he shows us what species can be found and where, how to identify them and how to store, use and cook them. You'll learn the stories behind the Latin names, the best way to tap a Birch tree and how to fry an ant, make rosehip syrup and cook a hop omelette.
Fully illustrated throughout, with tips on kit, conservation advice and notes on whats to avoid, this is an indispensable guide for anyone interested in wild food, whether you want to explore the great outdoors, or are happiest foraging from your armchair.
