Foraging & Wild Food

George (The Wild Food Forager) and I offer wild weekends to suit all kinds of parties! We take groups of up to 14 out into the countryside to forage all the seasonal edibles there are to hand. George has an incredible knowledge of the plants we have around us in the UK and luckily I get to cook with all his wonderful finds! With wild cocktail infusion classes with George, to cooking demonstrations with me, there is something for everyone. Along with wilderness picnics we talk all things wild from medicinal herbs to brews and tinctures, as well as food preserving and storing.

Get in touch if you would like to arrange a wild adventure locally to you, it can be a real joy when you realize all of the wild food that is available right on your doorstep!

Alternatively look out for out seasonal events such as our Cornish Foraging & Wild Food Adventure, which you will find more information about on the events page, we would love you to join us!
