Review:

`Food for Free is a life-enhancing classic. That it is erudite and charming as well as practical and accurate is a testament to Richard Mabey's great gift as a biographer of our natural heritage. It remains the best possible antidote to the over-processed and the pre-packaged.'Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall `The forager's bible continues to inspire and enthral.'Scottish Field `Still a classic'The Financial Times `Armed with this guide, this month you could be sampling the simple pleasures of eating a fleshy Hottentot fig straight from a Devon clifftop, making elderflower fritters gathered from the hedgerows, or frying fairy-ring champignons picked off your lawn. With its charming painted illustrations, it is a book to savour in itself.'Devon Life
