A new approach to foraging

Roger Phillips is the
legendary godfather of foraging. Drawing upon decades of experience, his
knowledge of wild food is unrivalled and in this richly illustrated book he
shares some of his most recently gathered wisdom, collected from around the

Roger reveals the edible and therapeutic secrets of
our fields, woodlands and flower beds, and suggests tips for sourcing delicious
morsels growing throughout the countryside and in our gardens. He also
describes the native habitat and history of many fascinating plants and fungi,
both common and unusual: from the camas bulbs eaten by the Native Americans of
the Pacific Northwest, to the Italian and Spanish favourite, Caesar's amanita;
from hostas, the familiar garden foliage consumed as a succulent vegetable in
Japan, to the newly popular Australian citrus fruits.

The Worldwide Forager is divided into
four sections: mushrooms and fungi; flowers, leaves and herbs; fruit and nuts;
and roots and tubers, and Roger uses each one to provide a wide range of ideas
for making your meals more colourful, delicious and sustainable.

About Roger Phillips

In 1975 Roger Phillips set out to develop an encyclopedic collection of books to show the difference between plants as diverse as mosses, roses and annuals. His first book, Wild Flowers of Britain (1977), was a huge success, selling 400,000 copies in the first year. He has since written more than twenty additional volumes (often with his co-author Martyn Rix) selling over six million copies worldwide. Roger has also written and presented two major six-part TV series on gardening for the BBC and Channel 4.
