Product Description

From the Back Cover

Roger Phillips is one of our leading experts on wild food and mushrooms. He has been foraging for decades and has influenced a generation of British chefs. Now, in this beautifully illustrated and authoritative book, he identifies hundreds of edible plants growing all around us, in our hedgerows, woodlands and fields, along river banks and seashores, even on inhospitable moorland.

Roger gives fascinating information on how our ancestors would have used the plants, and includes over 150 delicious recipes for food and drink, from bilberry muffins to blackberry and apple jam, from red clover wine to watercress soup.

Including berries, herbs and salad leaves, mushrooms, wild vegetables, seaweed and even bark, Wild Food 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

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.

This is a really beautiful book. The photos make you want to get out there searching and cooking straight away! It is a lovely balance between foraging information and recipes. I only gave it 4 rather than 5 stars because it is very heavy on the mushrooms at the expense of other things.

I love this book! Beautiful photos, some lovely recipe suggestions. Not sure how much foraging I'll actually do but worth buying for the photos and recipes which are adaptable to what you might already have in the fridge! Great quality.

Excellent book for those (like me) who already have some knowledge of foraging and plant/mushroom identification. Great information, great photos and some great recipes that I shall definitely be adding to my repertoire.

good book with excellent photographic illustrations as you expect with this author. Not a pocket guide, but one to read and check against. Interesting recipes included.
