Join our wild food experimentalist and expert on an educational walk into the beautiful Cheshire countryside discovering the flavours of nature.
Your day starts gathered around our large fire pit with toast, wild jams and forager’s teas and coffee. As you sip, James will go through some pointers to help identify the many plants you are about to discover, their uses, flavours and look alikes.
Then it’s off into the hedgerows and hills to gather ingredients that you will cook with later. As you explore you will enjoy a range of pre-made wild food tasters from jams to pickles, syrups, chutneys, cordials, alcohol infusions and salt pickles.
Back at the school you will sort and clean your ingredients with the afternoon dedicated to cooking with your wild ingredients. You will be guided through the process of chopping, boiling, baking and mixing your wild ingredients to create a delicious two course meal cooked over our fire pit for the whole group to enjoy.
Price: £100.00 including ingredients, tea, coffee, refreshments. Equipment and aprons are provided for the day.
Please note – this is an outdoor activity and subject to the Great British weather please keep an eye on the forecast and dress accordingly. The forage will take place in the fields, lanes, hedgerows and gently sloping hills which means uneven and changing surfaces.
Tutor: James Wood
