Look out of your window, walk down a country path or go to the beach in Great Britain, and you are sure to see lots of nature's treats that you can take home and eat.
From dandelions in Spring, elderflowers in Summer to brambles and sloes in Autumn, via wild garlic, samphire, chanterelles and hawthorn berries, our countryside is full of edible delights in any season.
John Wright is the country's foremost expert in foraging and brings decades of experience, including as forager at the River Cottage, to this seasonal guide.
Month by month, he shows us what species can be found and where, how to identify them, and how to store, use and cook them. You'll learn the stories behind the Latin names, the best way to tap a Birch tree, make rosehip syrup and how to forage safely.
Fully illustrated throughout, with tips on kit, conservation advice and what to avoid, this is an indispensable guide for everyone interested in wild food, whether you want to explore the great outdoors, or are happiest foraging from your armchair.
