Here is an extraordinary identification guide allowing you to determine, without risk of error, the 50 most common edible plants of the French flora. By its precision and ease of access, it rivals an in situ botanical walk. Clear texts, accompanied by more than 450 photos and drawings, point out the determining elements for each species (avoiding any confusion with a toxic double) and summarize, season by season, the possible food uses, from the most classic to the most original, fresh or in processed form (fermentation, sprouted seeds, etc.). Recipe ideas complete this book.
