Wild food is all around us, growing in our hedgerows and fields, along river banks and seashores, even on inhospitable moorland. In this definitive book, hundreds of these plants are clearly identified, with colour photography and a detailed description. Roger Phillips also gives us fascinating information on how our ancestors would have used the plant as well as including over 100 more modern recipes for delicious food and drinks.
From berries, herbs and mushrooms to wild vegetables, salad leaves, seaweed and even bark, this book will inspire you to start cooking with nature’s free bounty.
‘I can safely say that if I hadn’t picked up this book some twenty years ago I wouldn’t have eaten as well, or even lived as well, as I have. It inspired me then and it inspires me now’ – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

Amazon Reviews of Wild Food: A Complete Guide for Foragers
“Excellent book for those (like me) who already have some knowledge of foraging and plant/mushroom identification. Great information, great photos and some great recipes that I shall definitely be adding to my repertoire.”
“I love this book! Beautiful photos, some lovely recipe suggestions. Not sure how much foraging I’ll actually do but worth buying for the photos and recipes which are adaptable to what you might already have in the fridge! Great quality.”
