A new age of food insecurity is dawning, such that few living Europeans have experienced. With it, interest in foraging has soared – and not just as a hobby or high-cuisine curiosity. This book reconnects the contemporary wild-food renaissance with its rich cultural history.
Edible Plants is the most comprehensive colour-illustrated book ever published on foraging for plants and seaweeds in North-west Europe. As well as wild species it includes edible ornamentals – increasing the repertoire of the urban forager – and every important poisonous species.
The book is suitable for beginners as well as advanced foragers, with beautiful photos that aid practical identification, clear symbols for caution and danger, and colour-coded page edges for easy reference. It has thread-sewn binding, in anticipation of extensive usage.
