Hedgerow & Moor
The Foragers Calendar: A Seasonal Guide To Nature's Wild Harvests by John Wright
If you are interested in the changing seasons and identifying the different plants that pop up in the hedgerows and woods near your home, then this book is perfect for you.
'He writes so engagingly that it's hard to imagine that actual foraging can be more attractive than reading his accounts of it. ...[This book] is a treasure. It is beautifully produced, designed and illustrated.' - John Carey, The Sunday Times Shortlisted for the Andre Simon Food and Drink Book Awards for 2019. Look out of your window, walk down a country path or go to the beach in Great Britain, and you are sure to see many wild species that you can take home and eat.
From dandelions in spring to sloe berries in autumn, via wild garlic, samphire, chanterelles and even grasshoppers, 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, and how to make rosehip syrup and cook a hop omelette. 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.
