A great addition to any kitchen,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edible Wild Plants & Herbs: A Compendium of Recipes and Remedies (Hardcover)
This excellent large format book is well written and lovingly illustrated by hand and a joy to own and read.
It consists of chapters on each principle food plants, a hand drawn illustration, an introduction to the properties and qualities of the plant and then a series of mainly vegetarian recipes both sweet and savoury that can be made from it.
This is not a field guide, it is too large, unwieldy and precious for that. It is a book to be studied before leaving for a country ramble and then consulted again upon returning with whatever foodstuffs you have found.
A great addition to any kitchen.
