If you’re looking to give wild food a go, wild garlic should be top of your list. Only a fool would be using bulbs this time of year when this underused, amazingly tasty delicacy is available.

Bold, bright and fresh – the leaves are seriously pungent but ease nicely with cooking to give a real depth to dishes. The true test of wild garlic however is the scent. Usually you will smell it before you see it.

Wild garlic is the perfect substitute for basil in a fresh pesto or, like jack-by-the-hedge, it loves to be turned for a few minutes with butter, Parmesan and pasta.

This is the real taste of spring.
