About the book

The Coastal Forager’s Cookbook showcases foraged ingredients like wild mushrooms, seaweed, fish and molluscs, flowers and evergreen tips, and brings them together in 40 recipes to inspire forays into tide and woods and a sense of adventure in the kitchen. Along the way Robin shares memories of her childhood on the West Coast and her world travels, tips on plant identification, and guidance on mindful, sustainable foraging.
