Foraging has seen a surge in popularity over recent years, driven by the organic, natural, local and wholesome lifestyles many now prefer. This brand new guide to beginners is full of information about natural habitats and where to find food in the wild. It includes descriptions of each edible plant, with accompanying illustrations, photos, and recipes.
The book is organized by habitats, such as woodland, grassland, farmland, or coast, to allow readers to engage with whatever natural landscape they walk through and help them understand why things grow where they do.
Each plant entry will be accompanied by a color artwork to assist with identification. Detailed black-and-white illustrations will provide extra guidance and photographs will bring modern foraging to life in a colorful and engaging way.
Every section will also include tried-and-tested recipes from the author allowing readers to use what they forage to make something tasty for the kitchen table. Learning to forage is beneficial whether you want to avoid eating overly processed foods, need to cope with modern dietary problems or would simply like to enjoy a bit more time with your family outdoors surrounded by nature.
