Foraging and Wild Food Cookery Course

A full day of foraging and wild food cookery, with a professional forager from Totally Wild UK.

After our initial meeting we will go through some keys to help you in the correct identification of what we’re about to find. Along with your very own foragers baskets we will head out to discover the vast array of wild edible species that lie all around us. James Wood, your forager, will give you tips on correct identification, potential look-alike species as well as a vast range of edible possibilities that the species can provide us with. Take all of this in whilst enjoying a large range of pre-made wild food tasters from jams to pickles, syrups, chutneys, cordials, alcohol infusions and salt pickles. You will then take on the role of the forager, harvesting a range of wild and fresh ingredients.

On returning to our venue we will have a quick break whilst sorting through and cleaning up our ingredients. Then we start on the cookery side of our course, you will be guided through the process of chopping, boiling, baking and mixing our wild ingredients to create a delicious meal for us all to enjoy.
