A number of people have asked me recently to recommend my favourite wild food recipe books. Here are my top picks…
An absolutely beautiful and extraordinary book. Rene Redzepi takes you on a sensual journey to discover the essence of what ‘Noma’ stands for and represents at the cutting edge of wild food cuisine. He is taking the art of foraging into a whole new universe where epicurean delights await. A must.
One of the best wild food recipe books to have come out in a long time. The photographs and recipes are absolutely superb, and this is one that needs to grace the shelves of any self respecting forager.
A good little recipe book that is one of the few books to offer the nutritional values of wild edible plants too.
Delightfully illustrated, with a good number of recipes that actually work.
