Chocolate combined with sweet violets and nettle has, quite simply, got to be experienced! The deep, earthy flavours of nettle combine beautifully with the bitter-sweet taste of rich, dark chocolate.

My Latest Book is Now Available on Amazon as a Paperback or Kindle
For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.
I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.
I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.
