The Hedgerow Cookbook

The Hedgerow Cookbook

It’s free, it’s fun and it’s very tasty! Harvesting your own produce from the countryside rather than just ordering food online from the supermarket is a pleasure available to everyone. There is real joy in turning nature’s bounty into delicious foods to enjoy with the family or to make into a lovely gift,  This book will inspire you to use your ‘harvest’ in lots of different ways. It covers a range of easy-to-find (and identify) wild things which are really good to eat. We are not interested in stuff which might help us survive in extremis, just in things which are unusually delicious and enhance our lives! There are chapters on flowers and hips; leaves; berries; fruit with stones; fruit with pips; and nuts. This is a really practical book containing over 100 recipes, both sweet and savoury, as well as tips on gathering, seasonality, and on the law. Now also available on Kindle.               Video and all photography by Cristian Barnett.
