A humorous look at the edible flora and fauna of the British Countryside, how exotic flavours such as chilli and pineapple have a home in our hedgerows too. A fascinating look at old wives tales and are they really true and relevant still today. how we can turn something ordinary into something that graces the tables of the best fine dining restaurants and how we can rediscover the everyday plants we walk past that are actually quite astonishing. I will take you on a journey of some of the stars of the wild food world that will really astound you.

**please look out for me on James Martin's Morning Show on 30th November 2019 I will be featuring regularly on the show next year **
