Spring is a hectic time of year for a forager, nowhere more so than in the city; the natural world is erupting with lush green leaves and brightly coloured flowers, stunning blossoms adorn the trees and all manner of delicious edible delights leap out at me every time I leave the house. It's almost too much […] Read More

Here's a short/not so short film of me in a north London nature reserve, randomly waffling about wild plants and foraging...unrehearsed and unplanned, I was about to take a a photo of some tasty looking young hawthorn leaves and instead I ended up making this film, without taking a breath for about twenty minutes. Actually […] Read More

Last summer I ran a private event, a foraging walk for a swanky south London cocktail bar, an excitable bunch, brimming with ideas and eager to explore and utilise some of the cities wild flavours in their drinks. It was a roasting hot day and many of the plants we encountered were very dried out, […] Read More

Each year I publish my Autumn mushroom hunting dates and each year I seem to get quite a bit of flack, almost always uninformed or misguided, sometimes slightly abusive. Mushroom hunting seems to be one of those topics that everyone, regardless of how little they know about it, has an opinion about. So, this year […] Read More

My bloody back is killing me! Too much time in the car and too much time in front of this cursed screen! Hold on, I hear you say, nobody wants to read a blog where all you do is moan, not even your mum. Absolutely right, so instead of complaining and instead of more computer […] Read More

  It's more commonly a plant, a recipe or some historical information that inspires me in the kitchen...In this case it was quite simply the packaging, not that I can exactly remember where this plastic tray came from or what was in it to start with. Last month I wrote about my trip to Scotland, […] Read More

Oh, and there will be a group of like-minded people, foragers, chefs and booze people with you, you'll have to spend your time visiting some […] Read More

The internet is awash with regurgitated information and nowhere more so than in blogs like this one. I always try to write about things I have actually experienced rather than repeating the findings of others, but it's hard to stay on the path especially with so much information to draw on. Facts and lies seem […] Read More

I've said it before but foraging is easy, it really is, and anyone who tells you otherwise is not to be trusted. My approach hinges on taking the tinniest bit of knowledge and putting it to myriad uses; simply being able to identify a Dandelion will provide numerous, all year round, foraging opportunities and produce […] Read More

OK, I admit it. I do have a tendency to go on a bit, especially about wild food, foraging and all things connected. So, for this month I'm going to shut up and just give you some delicious new recipes to try, either created by me or generously donated by foraging friends. Actually when I […] Read More
