I ought to define why I describe myself as the Urbane Forager as opposed to just an urban forager; otherwise it could simply look misspelled. There are lots of people who describe themselves as urban foragers and what they practise will vary from someone who once read a book and picked some Fat Hen – to someone living in a hollow tree, eating roots for breakfast, twigs for lunch and leaves for supper. I do not fall into either of these categories; what we do is far more practical and enjoyable.
