About the Author

'Wild at Heart' is a growing business selling a range of award-winning, artisan-made jellies, relishes and fruit cheeses, inspired by wild, native or ancient fruits and based on traditional English recipes. It was set up by Ginny Knox and Caro Willson. At school together they had shared many happy, sun-soaked days roaming the nearby fields and hedgerows, collecting crab apples and brambles to make into cakes, jellies and other delicious things. They both feel passionate about wild food, which is by definition local, seasonal, fresh and low in food miles. Not only this, but foods which grow in proximity on the same land are more likely to complement each other. Most importantly, gathering and cooking these foods is fabulous fun and directly connects us to our cultural heritage and helps bind us together as a community. www.wildatheartfoods.co.uk.

Wild At Heart is a company that was formed by Caro Willson and Ginny Knox after giving up their corporate careers. Their company provides a range of jams, jellies and chutneys inspired by ingredients that grows wild in our British hedgerows.

The subject matter of this recipe book really appealed to me. I have recently developed an interest in foraging, so it seemed fortuitous that there was a recipe book that contained recipes for my scavenged goodies. I am following in my ancestors footsteps and seeking food that nature gives up freely, with just a little effort required on my part.

The book starts with an introduction from the authors on why they started up their business. The next section is a useful note on the legality of foraging. In the UK, you have a common law right to forage for fruit, flowers, funghi and foliage as long as it is for personal use, not for re-sale and providing it has not been planted as a crop. There is also a very useful seasonal chart showing the availability of the ingredients covered.

The recipes are structured into chapters, each one focusing on a type of foraged ingredient, such as berries, leaves, or fruit. They are a variety of sweet and savoury, from main courses to side dishes.

The pictures are beautifully staged and photographed, and all the dishes look incredibly appealing. The recipes I tried were very easy to follow. I am pleased to note that the measurements are in grams, ounces and cups which I like to see as it makes the book try. My favourite recipes were the Sloe Vodka, Crab Apple Butter and Blackberry and Apple Crumble Cake.

This is the perfect book for this time of year when the trees and hedgerows are bulging with produce. Do yourself a favour and pick up a copy, then head out into the countryside. It has inspired me to open my eyes, and broaden my tastes from the usual blackberries, and seek out foraged foods I would normally walk by.

Free food... who doesn't want a bit of that in this day and age? Yet is anything really free unless you go dumpster diving? Yes, it can be, and this book shows you how!

To claim your free food you need to keep your eyes open and, at the same time, you get a bit of fresh air and exercise as you look around, harvesting "your own produce" from hedgerows, meadows and woods that may be around where you live. Of course, this book cannot give you a localised menu of everything you might find in your neighbourhood, yet you will get a good overview to the subject and be able to research any small local differences with a much wiser head on your shoulders.

Your eventual larder is split into key chapters for "flowers and hips", leaves, berries, fruit with stones, fruit with pips and nuts. Each chapter focusses on individual ingredients and their preparation as well as providing some recipe suggestions for their use. So elderflowers are, for example, shown to be capable of making various drinks (including elderflower champagne), cakes, desserts, jams and preserves. When you start to browse through this book you will see just how versatile many of these free ingredients can be - yet it is something that our forefathers might have taken for granted and it is only latter generations who have tended to eschew such items in favour of supermarket-provided food.

The recipes do have a natural bias towards the items found in England, so those based in other countries might need to undertake a bit of experimentation and substitution of ingredients yet that can be part of the fun too! The individual recipes do encourage you to learn, try and possibly experiment.

This book was recommended to me by a friend and I may well have been too excited to read it because when it came I was slightly disappointed that many recipes seemed to be remakes of regular recipes but just with the word 'wild' inserted at the beginning of the title. It is a book, to my mind, with fairly well known recipes but just with the addition of one wild ingredient, rather than entirely from, wild foods.

If you are somebody who reads cookbooks for pleasure like me, then it is a goood read. Also if you love feeling you are cooking with free stuff! I have only tried about 4 of the recipies so far but they have been really great. (The sorrell and cheese tart was fab) I can't wait for the soft fruit on my allotment to start coming ready so I can try some variations with not exactly wild food. I do love the idea of the seasonality but the waiting for some of the "wild" foods can be frustrating- hopefully I will appreciate them all the more as the seasons develop.

Exactly like a great cook book should be - a fab mix of sweet and savoury recipes, lots of beautiful photographs and clear directions.
I'm looking forward to making the slow roasted pork with damsons and some sloe gin but in the mean time, until they are in season, what's in season now... back to page 11.

The recipes have opened new horizons for me re foraging. As a beginner I didn't know about half of the things you can use to eat so am enjoying the challenge. The book is easy to follow; clear instructions. Love it!

Good and fun ideas for both hedgerow foraging, baking and cooking. Quite a few hedgerow plants covered, although not as many as I would have liked. A good starting point for a newbie to medicinal plants and foraging.
