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!
As well as covering how to keep foraging safe and sustainable – the focus at our events is on how you can use wild ingredients in your cooking, including recipe ideas and tips for you to use in your home kitchen.
By making the most of nature’s larder, foraging can also give you a really grounded sense of place; facilitate a deepening sensitivity to our environment.
For those seeking to eat more sustainably, game meat presents an attractive option. Unlike the meat industry, harvesting wild meat involves no chemicals, hormones, abattoirs, animal housing, or extra land to grow cereals/grains for feeds. They typically have a longer life span than farmed animals and culling their population growth can have a positive effect on their habitat.
Our seasonal game butchery and cookery courses are perfect for people who love the distinctive flavours of these wild meats, but are unsure how to cook with them. We offer evening, half day and full day courses throughout the year, focusing on what’s in season.
