4.0 out of 5 stars WIld food great images and a good description 28 Dec 2009
By Kenny
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The items in this book are well ordered, however the times of year the foods are in season can vary considerably. Thy are not always right. Other than that minor critism, a good well written book with lots of useful pictures. I would however look towards a ray mears book or the collins pocket book before buying this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide to wild vegetarian food. 21 Oct 2011
This book contains an introduction to foraging and a section on recipes but the main section lists edible wild foods that can be found in the British Isles.

The book is organised helpfully into chapters based on the following habitats:
- Woodland
- Riverside
- Grassland
- Roadside
- Seaside
- Gardens
- Hedges

Each plant or fungus (animals are not covered in this book) has 2 pages providing information on identifying features, where to look, what time of year it is available, 2 pictures, and how to cook or prepare it. Fungi also contain warnings e.g. "Can be mistaken for the poisonous..."

The pictures are really good and there is a good mixture of roots, leaves, nuts, berries and fungi. Well written and I can't think of any reason to not give it 5 stars
