Discover all the delicious morsels that sprout around the uk followed by a delicious foraged lunch.
We are surrounded by food. It grows in the hedgerows, in our wild spaces, on our commons and in our parks. The problem is recognising and selecting the leaf from the chaff. Get it right and you have before you a lifetime of picking and eating choice delicacies that can go into salads, chutneys and jams. There is something that is very rewarding about serving up a dish of say, young nettles (which do taste remarkably like spinach), knowing it was absolutely free in all senses of the word. Free of food miles, free of sprays, freed from a plastic bag and didn’t require a supermarket to provide it.
This experience will provide you with the expert know-how, so you won’t end up in A & E. Totally Wild only use professional foragers, who know their edible from their inedible. They are incredibly knowledgeable, often providing the leaves required by chefs and restaurants. The first important lesson you will take away with you is identification, as their are some tricky look-a-likes. As you progress you will have an opportunity to taste some pre-made wild food from pickles to jams, syrups, salts and infusions. After the forage you will sit down to a pre-prepared foraged lunch. In the past this has included knotweed jam and acorn sourdough, dandelion-root coffee cake, and nettle cordial. The lunch is obviously seasonal, so you will eat what is growing around you at the time.
