Foraging New Zealand


New Zealand is full of incredible, edible wild foods — fruit, fungi and seaweed; berries, herbs and more — you only need to know where to look and how to do it safely.

Foraging New Zealand is the ultimate guide to unearthing more than 250 of our tastiest wild plants.

Packed with stunning photography, up-to-date information and helpful tips, this book will have you venturing into the countryside, viewing urban weeds with fresh eyes, and returning to the larder with zest.

Peter Langlands has spent a lifetime compiling Aotearoa’s largest database of wild foraged species, running workshops and sourcing wild produce for chefs as one of our only licensed professional foragers. He brings his years of expertise together in this essential compendium. Peter and his partner are based in Ōtautahi Christchurch.

Launch Details: We are thrilled that Peter will be launching Foraging New Zealand in-store at Scorpio Books on Wednesday 1st May, 5.30pm for a 6pm start. All welcome, refreshments provided. This event is free to attend. RSVP by emailing
