First published in 1972, it has been
reprinted 11 times - this is a guide to 300 foods
that can be gathered in the wild in Britain. Food for Free explores the
history and folklore of the foods as well as explaining how we identify
them and the best ways to cook and eat them. Organized by season, Food for Free takes us through the year. Richard Mabey's
fully-revised text is accompanied by stunning photographs, new
recipes and a wealth of practical information on collecting, cooking
and preparing. Beautifully illustrated, written and
produced in a new, larger format this book is designed to inspire
us to take more notice of what is around us, how we can make use of it
and how we can conserve it for future generations.
Excellent source of reference - After reading this book I went out for a walk and picked some
blackberries, elderberries & sloes, which were growing only 10
minutes from my house! This book opened my eyes to stuff that I usually overlook
in the hedgerows and provided me with some useful information about the type of
plants, fruits and fungi that are edible
with superb recipe ideas too. It encouraged me to venture out and
walk in local woodland, along river banks and fields etc. I even found some of
the highly recommended Parasol mushrooms! Wonderful book and really, really
useful. Worth every penny.
