All the work is finished on my new book, and it has now been delivered to Unbound the publishers. It changed its title to The Worldwide Forager as when I had finally completed it the first title seem inappropriate, as I had been discovering foraged plants from all over the world photographing them and writing about them. For me the most exciting of the fungi discoveries is The Desert Truffle, I came to realise after finding it that it is the Manna of the bible, referred to in the Koran as the food of the Gods. Did you know that Hostas, are used as a vegetable in their native Japan? Delicious too.
