Who’s it for?
This 2 day autumn fruits & fungus foraging course brings together some of our own passions, namely the British countryside, fresh, sustainable ingredients, cooking and great food! If you share any of those passions, or simply want to know more about the fantastic edible nuts, roots, berries and fungus that mother nature has gifted us, then this is the weekend for you.

What will you do?
On the first day of this fabulous foraging weekend, we will take you for a gentle stroll around our woodland and neighbouring fields and hedgerows and collect various plants, nuts and berries. Of course, we’ll also show you those that are to be avoided.
Once we get back to our woodland camp, you will prepare all the wonderful ingredients collected, cook them and eat them! Everyone gets their own dish to cook and add to the banquet.
You will also be able to try out different backwoods cooking techniques and cook dishes with venison and pigeon using grills, skillet, dutch oven, pit oven, bin oven and embers.
On day two we switch the focus to fungus foraging. We will be joined by mushroom foraging expert Geoff Dann, author of ‘ Edible Mushrooms: a forager’s guide to the wild fungi of Britain, Ireland and Europe’. Geoff really knows his stuff and this is a brilliant opportunity to learn from one of the best out there. After our fungi forage we’ll return to camp and cook them up!
We’ll also cover some basic fire lighting and you will make some cooking utensils that you can take home with you.
If time permits you will get the opportunity to make some jams, jellies, cordials and syrups to take away.
