Wildly Inspired Tiffin Picnic Lunch

We’re taking a walk on the wild side and would love you to join us, as we introduce you to the hidden delights of nature’s spring larder.

Join us as we head out into the great outdoors for an introduction to foraging – followed by a wildly inspired tiffin-style picnic.

 

Our passion for wild ingredients inspires many of our menus throughout the seasons. When done carefully and sustainably, foraging is a great way of connecting with our natural environment and making the most of the ingredients on our doorstep. You can’t get more local than your nearest hedgerow!

 

We will start over with a wild tea, before we take a slow-paced meander through fields and woodlands, exploring ingredients built around what is not just seasonally available, but delicious too!

 

Guiding you through tips on harvesting, correct identification and possible lookalikes, we will also cover how to keep foraging safe and sustainable. This walk is designed for those at the start of their wild food journey, with a focus on how you can start to feature seasonal wilds in your cooking. We’ll provide recipe ideas and tips, as well as a digital foraging guide on everything we cover throughout the walk.

 

Our foraging walk will be followed by a wildly inspired picnic, prepared by our team from the finest locally and seasonally inspired produce and enjoyed either beneath the trees in our woodland glen, or down in the meadows by the lakes (weather permitting).
