Eat Wild and Duncan Mackay featured on a live BBC Berkshire foraging broadcast within the Henry Kelly radio show on Saturday 8 September.
Eat Wild also featured in a letter ‘If in doubt, don’t eat it’ by Duncan Mackay printed in the British Medical Journal of 29 September (cite BMJ 012;345:e6391). The letter was in response to an article on the patient experiences of Nicholas Evans, the author of ‘The Horse Whisperer’, who required a kidney transplant after eating a poisonous mushroom on a Scottish estate owned by his brother in law.
Bizarre Berkshire research prompted a letter by Duncan Mackay to New Scientist concerning an article and debate on the causes of Spontaneous Human Combustion. It was published in the 24 September edition of the magazine.
Bizarre Berkshire was also the subject of an evening with the author at Wokingham Library on 20 September with a request for another public author session on Eat Wild in the spring of 2013; watch out for further details.
And finally “Apples, Berkshire, Cider”, Duncan’s ABC book on apples in Berkshire featured in a traditional cider making demonstration by Duncan Mackay at Ufton Court Open Day on 23 September 2012.
Busy, busy Duncan Mackay!
