FOOD YOU CAN FORAGE (Bloomsbury, 2018)
My first book Food You Can Forage will be published 8th March 2018 by Bloomsbury.
When you know where to look, each season Nature provides a generous spread of tasty treats ripe for the picking. Foraging can be an adventure for the entire family, and my book is packed with photos, illustrations and useful information to help you identify and find food in the wild, as well as delicious recipes to try with your finds. This book explores a range of habitats, revealing why plants grow where they do and which other living things live there too. There are tips to help make the most of time spent outdoors wherever you are, and the text also explains everything from the birds to look out for along the coast to which bumblebees you’re most likely to spot in your local heathland. Whether you prefer to avoid eating overly processed foods or just enjoy spending time outdoors with family and friends, knowing how to ethically source food for free in the wild is a valuable and fun skill that anyone can learn.
You can pre-order my book online here ready for spring, or buy it in all good bookshops from 8th March 2018. Thanks for your support!
