In Eat Wild, Duncan Mackay offers imaginative ways to cook wild food outdoors: whether over a fire, on a BBQ or even, as a last resort, in a kitchen. A book for first-time wild food foragers and outdoor cooks, this hands-on guide is proud to be described as “rough cooking” – the antidote to “fine dining”. It offers experiences that are hard for your taste-buds to imagine; the sort that you simply can’t buy in a shop and only rarely savour in some of the world’s most expensive restaurants. It’s a month-by-month look at what’s out there in the wild, what’s easiest and safest to identify and tastiest to eat. Wild eating is fun, free and fabulously fruitful. Features illustrations by Sally Castle.
