Alysia Vasey’s earliest memories are of walking alongside her grandfather as they explored the West Yorkshire moors that they called home. As an adult, this love for wild things stayed with her, even as she learnt that her family’s knowledge of edible plants were a legacy of a much darker time during the Second World War.

After leaving Yorkshire in search of adventure, Alysia was eventually guided home by her motto: Be true to yourself and you will become the person you were meant to be. She left her traditional path and took a far wilder journey that gradually evolved into one of the UK’s most successful foraging businesses, supplying some of the greatest chefs in the world and the best restaurants in the country Her achievements are the result of a bit of luck, a lot of knowledge and a huge amount of self-belief.

Here, Alysia also shares not only her story, but also her vast knowledge of UK plant lore. A true Yorkshirewoman, Alysia tells it like it is, and The Yorkshire Forager is full of tales of her family’s adventures and misadventures in their search for top quality ingredients – you never know who you might meet in the woods – making this book as entertaining as it is informative.
