For the first episode of the Go Gather Wild podcast series, I was delighted to talk to John Wright. John's one of my biggest inspirations and his books have been a constant companion along my foraging journey.
John is an expert on wild food and the author of the River Cottage Handbooks Mushrooms, Edible Seashore, Hedgerow, Booze and also The Naming of the Shrew. He is a member of the British Mycological Society and a Fellow of the Linnaean Society.
Our chat covers everything from easy to make foraging mistakes to making your own Yarrow Gin, a recipe we're keen to give a go... Enjoy!
