Alys Fowler takes a fresh look at foraging, encouraging you to look closer to home, from the weeds in your garden to the trees in your street, rather than the fields and hedgerows of the countryside. Alys showcases her favourite edibles with a plant directory packed with useful information – photographic identification, plant description and tips on how to grow and how to eat it (including recipes) – that will give you the confidence to identify plants yourself. This is a fast-growing, global phenomenon that is fun, environmentally friendly and thrifty!

'Where others see weeds, Alys Fowler sees supper.' The Guardian
'Is a hugely readable combination of factual field guide, recipes and inspiring tales of people (both at home and abroad) wining on elderflower champagne and dining on borage and sweetchestnuts.' Mail on Sunday YOU Magazine
'It has wonderful photographs that make plucking wild rocket and dandelions from wasteground look like a piece of delicious cake.' Irish Times
