Book Description

24 April 2014

Wild food is all around us, growing in our hedgerows and fields, along river banks and seashores, even on inhospitable moorland. In this definitive book, hundreds of these plants are clearly identified, with colour photography and a detailed description. Roger Phillips 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.

'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-Whittingstall

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction 24 April 2014
By Sam
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A well presented and visually appealing book. The book is divided into sections each containing numerous recipes.
while this book is by no means a field guide I feel it contains considerable value as a wild food cook book.
