About this book

Alys Fowler takes a fresh look at foraging, encouraging you to look closer to home, from the weeds in your garden to the trees in your street, rather than the fields and hedgerows of the countryside. Alys showcases her favourite edibles with a plant directory packed with useful information - photographic identification, plant description and tips on how to grow and how to eat it (including recipes) - that will give you the confidence to identify plants yourself. The book also features innovative ideas for eating your local landscape, from community gardens in Todmorden, UK to Edimental (edible ornamentals) gardens in Norway - this is a fast-growing, global phenomenon that is fun, environmentally friendly and thrifty.

Media reviews

'The appetite for foraging food from the wild has never been stronger. But gardener and author Alys Fowler says you don't have to necessarily go out into the rolling fields to find your dinner.' BBC Magazine 'Is a hugely readable combination of factual field guide, recipes and inspiring tales of people (both at home and abroad) wining on elderflower champagne and dining on borage and sweetchestnuts.' YOU Magazine, Mail on Sunday 'It has wonderful photographs that make plucking wild rocket and dandelions from wasteground look like a piece of delicious cake.' Irish Times
