SUMMER | Thursday 11th June 2020 | 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Learn the techniques and skills to extend nature’s bounty and stock your shelves at our Seasonal Wild Larder Workshop. You’ll discover how to capture the flavour of wild and foraged ingredients at their prime, so that you can build a colourful, healthy and delicious seasonally inspired larder.

From pickling to lacto-fermentation, infusing and dehydrating, this 3-hour workshop covers many different forms of the time-honoured art of preservation.


We will explore a variety of preserved foods from pickles, preserves, chutneys, infused oils and alcohols, seasonings and syrups through a series of tasters, demonstrations and hands-on sessions with our chefs. We’ll also enjoy a light supper around our sharing dining tables, featuring lots of the larder ingredients we’ll be working throughout the evening.


You will leave inspired with a selection of four different bottled and jarred delights that you have created over the course of the evening, to enjoy back at home over the coming months. You don’t need fancy kit – just a few simple guidelines as to how much, how long and how to keep things on track.


The course will be held in our cosy barn in the heart of the Priory Farm Estate in South Nutfield (near Redhill). 


£65 per person, including practical and demonstration cookery sessions, a light evening meal, soft drinks and all course material.

Beckie and Christian’s concept of sourcing local foods, along with the wild things we don’t think about any more, combined with cooking over the open fires is inspirational - and made even more delightful by their enchanting woodland setting.
The food is always delicious, created by Christian and the service is always warm and friendly, with the team lead by Beckie. I have been to lots of events and find new friends at each one. I would highly recommend them as a treat for yourself, a gift for a loved one and a fun night out for a group of friends.
It was such a great, unique experience and of course, it was delicious. Such a fun thing to do on a Sunday morning. The Salt Box guys are absolutely brilliant and I cannot praise them enough!
