9780091913632: The Forager Handbook: A Guide to the Edible Plants of Britain

At any time, in any place, food is there for the taking—if only people knew how to look. This foraging handbook tells readers how to recognize the rich possibilities that surround them—whether in the city or in the countryside. The author—who makes a living out of foraging—reveals the how, why, and what of this lost art. He starts with the many different sorts of habitat, from waste ground to woodland, from cliff top to coastland. Many of these plants—nettles, dandelions, fat hen, sorrel—grow so profusely they are considered a nuisance, yet they offer fantastic food possibilities and are rich in nutrients. For each plant and mushroom, ideas for how to use them in the kitchen as well as their nutritional qualities are provided. With tips from some of the most exciting chefs working in Britain today, this book will take readers on a voyage of discovery.

About the Author:

Miles Irving has been seeking out and selling foraged produce for over 10 years. Among the top British restauranteurs who sell the fruit, vegetables and herbs Miles delivers to their doors are Jamie Oliver, Richard Corrigan, Mark Hix, Sam and Sam Clark. Miles lives near Canterbury and has his own company, Forager.

Review:

"Nature lovers and foodies alike will be overjoyed by this. Combining recipes and folklore, it's a great book for our time." * The Independent On Sunday * "The definitive guide to foraging in the UK." * Wall Street Journal * "A unique and authentic guide, assiduously researched, packed with information and enlivened with anecdotes." * Country Kitchen * "The most up-to-date book on wild plants of Britain. Irving has produced a book that rivals Mabey's Food For Free and personally I feel it surpasses it... I would rate The Forager Handbook as one of the best [of its kind] in publication." * eatweeds.co.uk *

Descripción Ebury Publishing, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. At any time, in any place, food is there for the taking - if only we knew how and where to look. Miles Irving makes his living out of foraging - in this unique, authentic guide, he reveals the how, why, what and where of this lost art, a way of life that is becoming increasingly popular as more and more of us pursue an eco-friendly and sustainable lifestyle. This ground-breaking handbook tells you how to recognise the rich variety of wild food that surround us, whether in the city or countryside. From wasteground to woodland, from clifftop to coastland, edible plants flourish year in, year out. Spring is when wild garlic flourishes in shady woodlands; summer is the time for marsh samphire in the salt-marshes; autumn heralds an abundance of fruits and nuts. Many of these plants - nettles, dandelions, fat hen, sorrel - grow so profusely they are considered a nuisance. Yet they offer fantastic food possibilities and are rich in nutrients. Assiduously researched, packed with information and enlivened with anecdotes and more than 330 photographs, The Forager Handbook is a milestone publication marking the way forward for the future of British food. And for each plant family, Miles gives ideas for using foraged ingredients in the kitchen. With recipes from some of the most exciting chefs working in Britain today, including Sam and Sam Clark, Mark Hix and Richard Corrigan, and coverage of techniques like drying, pickling and making cordials, this book will take readers on a voyage of discovery. Foraging was something our ancestors did instinctively - this book truly connects us with our past and our future. Discover a secret world of edible possibilities - all freely available.
