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.
