Foraging for wild foods is gaining momentum around the country. Community groups are being created, there are dedicated foraging websites and articles in foodie and lifestyle magazines. People are more keen to eat organic and local fresh food and this book makes it apparent that there is plenty available – for free – in our own backyard. Divided according to edible weeds, food foraged from the fields, forest and seashore and a pantry section, Daly provides identification notes and recipes that demonstrate the use of wild foods in everyday cooking. He promotes the health-giving, nutritional benefits of foraging, using wild ingredients to add flavour and zest to recipes. From chickweed and potato samosas to wild mock strawberry and passionfruit tartlets, there is plenty of opportunity to experiment with new ways to incorporate wild foods in your cooking. Colour photographs identify each food, and safety guidelines are included.
