In 1975 Roger Phillips began his life’s major work of photographing and publishing pictures of the World’s garden plants. Using modern photographic techniques, Roger set out to develop an encyclopedic collection of books to show the difference between plants as diverse as mosses, roses and annuals. His first book Wild Flowers of Britain was a huge success, selling 400,000 copies in the first year.

I can safely say that if I hadn't picked up this book some twenty years ago I wouldn't have eaten as well, or even lived as well, as I have. It inspired me then and it inspires me now' Hugh l. Wild food is all around us, growing in our hedgerows and fields, along river banks and seashores, even on inhospitable moorland. In Roger Phillips and Martyn Rix's Wild Food, hundreds of these plants are clearly identified, with colour photography and a detailed description

This book stands out among many titles from the last 30 years whose authors take aim at enlightening readers about foraging and preparing wild plant foods. Philips' prose is engaging, clear and sound. His recipes, photographs and research make this book the most useful compendium of recipes for people who are serious about incorporating wild foods into their diets. Unlike many titles on the market, this collection does not rely on tired interpretations for cooking and enjoying foraged edibles, such as sautéed dandelion greens or the odd mushroom. Divided into sections by ecology/habitat, The Wild Food Cookbook combines the best aspects of classics by Billie Joe Tatum, Susun Weed and others in its scope and comprehension. More recent publications on wild foods such as Living Wild by Alicia Funk and The Wild Table by Connie Green would have benefitted from a nod to Daniels' ethos and style. For readers and eaters who are fascinated by natural foods from germination through harvest in a variety of locations- beach, yard, forest, field- this book offers an excellent balance of information with deliciousness. An important work to include in the library of anyone serious in their commitment to wild crafting, Roger Phillips' book is beautiful (2014 edition), useful, educational and fun to read. His advice is sound without repeating ideas and recipes most wild food enthusiasts are already familiar with.

I didn’t realize that it was based out of British isle. Other then that I did find information that can be used for me here in the US. Some of the recipes are going to be fun to try.
