Book recommendation: Edible Seashore

Possibly my favourite book discovery of the year so far is one called Edible Seashore by John Wright (Bloomsbury, 2009) which provides both a thorough and extremely practical guide to foraging down by the sea from flowering plants and seaweeds to molluscs and crustaceans. Being part of the River Cottage series of Handbooks it also has a great recipe section. If you liked Richard Mabey's excellent 'Food for Free' then there's every chance that you will like this one even more. A must buy both for occasional visitors to our rich coastline and for those that are lucky enough to live there all the time.
