A complete guide to help you safely identify edible species that grow around us, together with detailed artworks, field identification notes and recipes.

First published in 1972, this updated edition of Richard Mabey's cult bestseller has been revised to reflect the ever-increasing eco-awareness and popular interest in finding different, and more natural, sources of food. Each of the 240 types of fruit, nut, flower, seaweed, fungi and shellfish featured has its own identification field notes and artwork. Understand and learn about the fascinating edible species that you may come across and, with the help of the numerous recipes also included, find out the best way to pick and enjoy them.

Beautifully illustrated and written, ‘Food for Free’ will inspire you to take more notice of the natural harvest that surrounds us, learn how to make use of it and conserve it for future generations.

Review:

‘Thirty years after its initial publication, 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

From the Back Cover:

Illustrated throughout with stunning colour photographs this fully-revised edition of a Collins bestseller explains the best ways to make use of the foods we can find in the wild.

'Food for Free' by Richard Mabey was first published in 1972, since then it has been reprinted 11 times. An all-colour, revised version produced in 1989 has sold over 30,000 copies in the trade. A guide to over 200 types of food that can be gathered in the wild in Britain, 'Food for Free' explores the history and folklore of the foods as well as explaining how we identify them and the best ways to cook and eat them.

The new edition will bring the subject right up to date. Organized by season rather than food type 'Food for Free' will take us through the year. Richard Mabey’s fully-revised text will be accompanied by stunning photographs, new recipes and a wealth of practical information on collecting, cooking and preparing.

Beautifully illustrated, beautifully written and produced in a new, larger format 'Food for Free' is designed to inspire us to take more notice of what is around us, how we can make use of it and how we can conserve it for future generations.

Coch-y-Bonddu Books Ltd
(MACHYNLLETH, United Kingdom)

Book Description Condition: new. (S/hand / used, Paperback, 2007). (1972) 2007 new edition reprint. Slim 8vo paperback (112 x 189mm). Pp272. Colour paintings by Marjorie Blamey & others, bibliography. Fine unread copy. "A guide to the edible wild plants of Britain". "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. This is the classic work on British wild food, reissued here in a narrower format which fits into an overcoat pocket. Lots of clear paintings in colour for identification of each species. Chapters include; introduction, wild food and necessity, plant use and conservation, omissions; some picking rules; calendar; edible plants - roots, green vegetables, herbs, spices, flowers, fruits, making a jelly, nuts; trees; herbaceous plants; fungi; lichens seaweeds; shellfish; sources, references and further reading. "I have included shellfish because, from a picker's perspective, they are more like plants than animals. They stay more or less in one place, and are gathered, not caught." A must-have for anyone even slightly interested in the countryside. . Seller Inventory # 52955
