Who's behind British Local Food?
Hi there! I’m Alvaro, a passionate forager based in the British West Midlands.
I’ve been foraging for wild food since I was a kid. I still have fond memories going blackberry picking and mushroom hunting with my father at a young age. Growing up in Spain, I had the opportunity to learn about Mediterranean plants; I used to harvest olives, pine nuts and a number of aromatic herbs growing near home.
After moving to England ten years ago, I became interested to find out more about British wild food and have developed a real passion about picking, eating, cooking, preserving and experimenting with wild foods and so I realised that I wanted to share my passion with others.
I work hard on researching, taking relevant pictures and generating educational resources regularly.
