My Wild Food Woman alter ego..

Posted by on Nov 25, 2014 in Recipes, Slider | 0 comments

As some of you know, I am a keen forager and I have now set up a Wild Food Woman blog  which some of you might be interested in. My mum was a keen organic gardener and used wild foods in recipes all the time. It is only relatively recently that I have realised how unusual that was. I have done a cookery demo at a food festival, some local wild food walks and handed out my recipes for things like wild food bhajis and lavender scones on many,...

Fruit Leather

Posted by on Sep 11, 2013 in Recipes, Slider | 0 comments

As some of you know, I am a keen wild food forager, that means at this time of year I am often busy picking or cooking all sorts of tasty things.

Fruit leather is effectively a kind of fruit jerky and a healthy chewy treat. I don’t add sugar but you can if you want. It is very easy to make and, if properly...

I...

I bake this cake fairly often, especially if I know my gluten free friends will be visiting. Many people have asked me how to make it over the years so thought I’d put it on here for everyone to enjoy!   The recipe comes from the lovely people at Cafe Maitreya, an organic vegetarian restaurant in Easton in Bristol. Lots more interesting recipes on their website so it’s well worth a look.     Cafe Maitreya  legendary lemon polenta...

Wild food and foraging

Posted by on Apr 25, 2011 in Books, Other Health, Photos, Recipes | 0 comments

Living in the countryside my husband and I often eat foods we pick up on walks such as apples, many types of mushroom, nettles, sorrel, chickweed, borage, wild garlic, berries and rosehips. After doing a bit of weeding in the garden yesterday I was a bit disturbed to see some ground elder creeping its way through the rockery. But then I thought.. hmmm.. ‘free food’. For those of you that haven’t tried it, ground elder is...
