Why we love this book?
I am so intrigued about foraging and this book has everything you need to know, set out by month which makes it super easy. The colour photographs help you identify each plant species too. The author provides ideas for what to do with each plant too such as cooking, putting in salads, drinks or fermenting.
We always look to see if books are friendly and compatible to a vegan lifestyle. This book is almost vegan-friendly. I must admit, I have not read every single word of this book as there are so many plants but the author does recommend on how to use each plant. From what I have read, I have not seen recommended recipes using animal based ingredients.
