Food for Free by Richard Mabey was first published in 1972, and since then it has been reprinted 11 times. A guide to over 300 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.
