Ever thought weeds were just pesky plants to pull out and throw away? Think again! This informative, funny, and beautiful book will show you just how great edible weeds can taste. Learn to smell your way to an angled onion, bake weeds ‘n’ cheese pie, and safely harvest the juicy fruits of a prickly pear.
This is the ultimate companion for the young urban or rural forager. Once you’ve read it, you’ll start to see food all around you, every time you go for a walk.
Annie Raser-Rowland and Adam Grubb’s love of weeds bursts from every page. It is their sincere hope that this book ends up smeared with mud and stained with blackberry juice. Let’s get foraging!

‘The pair’s personable style makes you feel like you’re out on a wander with them, and the recipes and descriptions of flavours will make you want to jump up and go straight into your kitchen, via your own weedy garden. […] The delicate, rich renderings of the plants manage to merge a pencil-soft feel with a vintage scientific style, coming together in a book that is as beautiful as it is motivating.’
