With a background in science, cookery, and natural medicine, foraging has been part of my life since I started accompanying my granny on woodland strolls as a child.
My mother also taught me so much about nature, and we were brought up on a very healthy diet which included plenty of wild food, from rabbit and pigeon to mushrooms and watercress.
What I like most about foraging is that it means being out in beautiful nature, the woods, at the seashore, in hills and meadows.
When I eat something that I picked and preserved months earlier, the memory of that day comes rushing back with the taste.
Knowing that it is organic, healthy and natural warms my heart and fills me with vitality.
