Here in the UK, we are blessed with a wide range of seasonal vegetables, many of which we love to feature on our menus. Cooking vegetarian dishes over the flame is a fantastic way of getting incredible flavour and texture, from coal-baking and char-grilling to smoking and hay-baking.
So much hard work and love goes into raising this beautiful produce from the soil to the plate, so we’ll also cover making the most of all parts of our vegetables, from root to fruit, ensuring nothing goes to waste!
Our food-filled adventure starts with a foraging walk up to our woodland glen, gathering a selection of wild ingredients on our way. We will give you tips on how to identify seasonal hedgerow edibles, highlighting the tasty morsels that nature’s larder has to offer. Depending on the season and the (ever-changeable) Great British weather, you may want to bring wellies to change into and a good waterproof is recommended.
After a restorative cuppa in our woodland kitchen (equipped with a large shelter in case of particularly uncooperative weather!), we will then turn our attention to the main business of the day; lighting our fires and cooking up a feast. You will learn to build, light and control the fire. We will guide you in your wood selection and teach you to spark your flame by demonstrating multiple methods.
Fires crackling and curiosity sparked, we’ll cover the key skills you need to turn a selection of seasonal vegetables into a veritable vegetarian feast over fire. And what better place to lunch than under our woodland canopy?
Making a fire and cooking over it in the great outdoors is one of the simplest, and most natural ways to master the flames and enjoy delicious fresh food. Expect to head home smelling of wood smoke, with plenty of food and fire in your bellies. We’ll send you an email recipe pack so that you can get started at home straight away.
