Food For Free
The title, of course, being that of the legendary food-foraging book by Richard Mabey, which I noticed recently has had a makeover with funky pictures and a new format. Ever since well before the credit crunch people have been rediscovering their roots and berries in the hedgerows round here. I was impressed by The London Forager last year but now the skill is becoming a bit more organised.
Transition Westcombe, a group I still don’t quite ‘get,’ but always seems like A Good Thing, is organising a Wild Food Foraging Walk this Sunday 14th June at 2.00pm (maybe they’ll bump into Ross MacFarlane’s Medical London walk and become a foraging posse…)
I’ve already done my own foraging for June – and made some splendid-though-I-say-so-myself-who-shouldn’t Elderflower Cordial (I’d have made Elderfower Champagne too but I had some last year and it tasted like alcoholic cat-piss.)
