This book is beautifully produced, has some great recipe ideas and I love supporting a small indie publishing house. Each wild plant is accompanied by a fun and engaging description that concisely and accurately describes how to spot and identify them. I would highly recommend this little gem of a book to anyone interested in foraging and very much hope it is made into a series so that there are more to come!Bee
