Foraging and Cookery Workshop
Join Totally Wild UK professional foraging team to learn the ins and outs of foraging and wild food from the professionals.
After introductions we will get in to the mind-set of a forager before heading out to discover the vast array of wild edibles lying all around us. Learn the do’s and don’ts of general foraging whilst picking up great tips and information on identification edibility and uses of plants, fungi and seaweeds that can be found.
Whilst on the walk you will get the chance to try up to 30 pre-made tasters from infusions to jams, chutneys, salt pickles, syrups, salts and herb mixes. During our walk you will harvest a range of wild ingredients for us to cook up in to a wild inspired lunch for the group to enjoy before recapping on the session.
We cook up a range of things as a group on these courses but they’re dependent on the site and season.
