5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Foraging Guide, 8 May 2009
This review is from: Edible Seashore: River Cottage Handbook No.5 (Hardcover)
A visit to the seaside will never be the same again after reading this brilliant book. I had always wondered what wild food could be collected down by the sea but had been too worried to try anything - and the things I knew you could eat I didn't know how to catch. This book explains it all in a clear and wickedly amusing way. About forty species are covered, from something called "sea beet", which is easy to find, through to lobster for which you will need to wade out with a pot at low tide. The big revelation for me is the seaweed section - these are the easiest of things to collect and, the book tells me, delicious if you know how to cook them. Which brings me to the recipes - the panacotta is delicious and I'm looking forward to trying all the others.

This book is beautifully produced and written. It is also lol funny and stuffed with really useful information.
