Thanks for taking time to make a comment. It is much appreciated, but I'd like to explain something.
I am very pleased to have used recipes other than my own and had always aimed to do so. The creators of these recipes are for the most part credited on the page of the recipe, including details about the person, as well as in the back of the book in the 'credits' section. These people include, amongst others, my friends Allie Thomas of Craddocks Savoury Biscuits, Sarah Howcroft, a shamanic practitioner and bushcraft expert, and Fi Bird, who runs an amazing educational organisation called 'Stirrin' Stuff'. Over the years, I expect like most of us, I have collected recipes, sometimes adapted them, and frequently experimented with my own ideas. The subject is vast, as you know, and the big issue for me, constantly, was what to leave out. In the end, I decided to go for the best-known hedgerow plants and to include some old favourites as well as what I had hoped are some unexpected surprises. The main aim of the book, as I point out, was to highlight the beauty and fascination of the hedgerow in order that a new generation can understand how important it is to protect them. Also, I considered it a huge privilege to have Lizzie Harper illustrate this book. She is having an exhibition in Shepherds Gallery in Hay on Wye from mid-May until July; if you happen to be in the area do drop by. Her works are even more exquisite in real life.
