About this book

A complete guide to help you safely identify edible species that grow around us, together with detailed artworks, field identification notes and recipes.

First published in 1972, and a second edition in 1989, this updated edition of Richard Mabey's cult bestseller has been revised to reflect the ever-increasing eco-awareness and popular interest in finding different, and more natural, sources of food. Each of the 240 types of fruit, nut, flower, seaweed, fungi and shellfish featured has its own identification field notes and artwork. Understand and learn about the fascinating edible species that you may come across and, with the help of the numerous recipes also included, find out the best way to pick and enjoy them.

Media reviews

"Thirty years after its initial publication, the forager's bible continues to inspire and enthral."
- Scottish Field

"Still a classic"
- The Financial Times

"Armed with this guide, this month you could be sampling the simple pleasures of eating a fleshy Hottentot fig straight from a Devon clifftop, making elderflower fritters gathered from the hedgerows, or frying fairy-ring champignons picked off your lawn. With its charming painted illustrations, it is a book to savour in itself."
- Devon Life
