Look out of your window, walk down a country path or go to the beach in Great Britain, & you are sure to see many wild species that you can take home & eat. From dandelions in spring to sloe berries in autumn, via wild garlic, samphire, chanterelles & even grasshoppers, our countryside is full of edible delights in any season. John Wright is the country’s foremost expert in foraging & brings decades of experience, including as forager at the River Cottage, to this seasonal guide. Month by month, he shows us what species can be found & where, how to identify them, & how to store, use & cook them.
