    Foraging may be the latest food trend, but it is a pastime that passionate cooks have long enjoyed. And as The Forager's Kitchen demonstrates, foraging can result in some truly scrumptious dishes! Written by Fiona Bird, a tenacious forager who has been gathering food for many years, The Forager's Kitchen will show you that you can eat off the land wherever you live. Whether you live in a large city, in open countryside, or by the coast, you will find more ingredients growing in the wild than you could imagine. With a little bit of expert knowledge and some handy tips to guide your fingers, you'll learn the best spots and seasons to find your favourite foods, for free! Then, once you have brought your bounty home, there are more than 100 simple recipes for you to try. From carrot and clover cake to wild berry and herb marshmallows, you'll never look at the outdoors in the same way again.

    In an era when the iPad is often more appealing than the park, it can be difficult to encourage kids to get off the couch and go outside. In this inspirational book, with ideas for children of all ages, foraging expert Fiona Bird shows the value of playing outside and discovering nature for children and families alike. First Fiona teaches children about their environment, including conservation guidelines and tips on how to forecast the weather. Armed with this knowledge, the outside adventure goes Into the Woods, in Chapter 1, with outdoor crafts including making leaf art bunting, a dream catcher, and a woodland broom. In Chapter 2, Meadows, Hedgerows, and Hills, ideas include wild face paints, natural dyeing, and making potpourri. Onward to Chapter 3, Seashore, where children learn how to go beachcombing, identify different seaweeds, play beach hopscotch, and make a mollusk wind chime. In Chapter 4, Water and Wetlands, children learn to make their own charcoal and go on an animal track and poop hunt!For those who don't want to move far from home, there's plenty to do in My Wild Garden and Kitchen, Chapter 5, such as making a snail holiday village and attracting bugs, as well as developing hunting and gathering skills, with seasonal recipes made from natural ingredients. So let your kids go wild outside, and enjoy watching them learn and blossom.
