The Forager's Calendar
Love the thought of foraging, but don't know where to start? You are in safe hands with John Wright, naturalist and one of Great Britain's leading experts on fungi.
Writing as though he's talking directly to you, John steps you though every aspect of foraging - from what species can be found and where, how to best identify them, and how to store, use and cook them. From foraging nettles, strawberries, wild garlic and sea kale, to learning the best way to tap a Birch tree, how to fry an ant, make rosehip syrup and cook a hop omelette, this book has an encyclopedic wealth of knowledge between its pages.
John Wright's expert advice guides you to finding all the seasonal free produce just beyond your doorstep. His extensive knowledge is worn lightly, with funny, whimsical observations. Packed full of photos, this wonderful book one that should be well-thumbed by anyone who is interested in the natural world
