The authors are from England, so some of the plants are not available in our area. This is a subject that fascinates me, however, and so I couldn't resist getting the book to review. The books authors have their own company called "Wild at Heart", and this book came about as a result of their own business success. The book basically has two parts: a section on the plant to forage & how to pick it, and a section on what to make with it. There's both the standard British measurements & what we are used to here in the States, making it easy for anyone to use the recipes. I was thrilled to see a section on dandelions, something I was determined to pick and harvest this year but didn't because I had no idea what I could actually DO with the flower. Unfortunately, however, the two recipes they included - wine, and marmelade - are two things I could never make - the wine for space reasons, and the marmelade because it includes multiple ingredients I'm allergic to. all in all, however, there aren't any recipes in the book I'll actually use, but I think it's a great resource and a good place to start with wild foraging. I received a review copy for free from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
