Wildfood and Wilderness Cookery Day
9th October 2021
Learn to identify and prepare a wide variety of wild foods
“Food tastes better outdoors” – and even better when you have gathered and prepared it yourself
Have a great day out in the woods whilst also gaining inspiration, understanding and confidence about some of our many seasonal wild foods available in our woodlands and countryside.
On this Wild food and Wilderness cookery day, you will learn how to identify various plants/trees/fungi as well as discover how to create a variety of dishes, combining what we have gathered with various simple ingredients/wild food that is brought in. Building your confidence whilst having fun will be Dave’s focus, coming from 25 years of professional experience.
During the day you will:
- Gain confidence in identifying a variety of plants and fungi (depending on the time of year)
- Learn how to prepare fish and game
- Understand the four main cooking areas of the campfire
- Create and eat sustaining meals using wild ingredients
