Find edible wild plants in this seasonal foraging guide for beginners A friendly, honest guide for wary would-be foragersOnly plants that are easy to find, easy to identify and tastyClear photographic guides to the species We all love the idea of foraging – as a way of being connected to nature and discovering new tastes.

But in reality, most of us are very wary, and sometimes a bit underwhelmed when we do try.

What’s needed is this totally honest, safety-first guide for softy first-time foragers.

This book concentrates on 40 plants that are easy to identify and worth the effort – plants that are tasty and abundant in the wild or in gardens and parks.

There are simple recipes to try as well. This isn’t an armchair guide for people dreaming of being Ray Mears or Bear Grylls.

It’s for everyday people who lives in towns and suburbs as well as the countryside, and who want to get a little closer to nature and discover new tastes, without stress.
