The Forager's Calendar - John Wright



Winner of The Guild of Food Writers Award for Food Book of the Year 2020 and Woodlands Awards Best Woodland Book of the Year 2020.

From dandelions in spring to sloe berries in autumn, via wild garlic, samphire, chanterelles and even grasshoppers, the countryside is full of edible delights in any season. John Wright is the country's foremost expert in foraging and 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 and where, how to identify them, and how to store, use and cook them.

Fully illustrated throughout, The Forager's Calendar has tips on kit, conservation advice and what to avoid, this is an indispensable guide for everyone interested in wild food, whether you want to explore the great outdoors, or are happiest foraging from your armchair.
