In-Depth Foraging and Cookery class with James Wood – Bilberry British Foods

This session begins with a greeting of wild teas and coffees, jams and scones, whilst enjoying these we do some introductions and a discussion about what foraging is all about for you and for me. We then move on to learn a range of key skills that help us correctly identify the wild plants we will encounter during our forage.

After this we head out to explore our surrounding spaces and discover what wild edible species lie all around us, whilst trying up to 20 pre-made tasters including jams, chutneys, pickles, salt ferments, syrups, spices and alcohol infusions. We will then harvest enough wild plant material to create and cook our own wild food lunch and preserve.

On returning to our main site we process our wild foods and begin the cookery side of this course, where we will learn how to, chop, boil, fry, ferment, pickle and create delicious meals with our wild foods. We will cook up a two course lunch and a preserve for you all to take home and share with your friends. Everyone will be given a wild food portfolio, including information on foraging and detailed information on the recipes we cook up so you can recreate them at home.

This is a hands-on course and you will become the foragers and chefs for the day making venison steak with black pudding and wild herb mash and a bilberry gravy, bilberry Eaton mess and bilberry jam to take home.

Included: Wild tea and coffee, scones and jam on arrival. 20 pre-made wild food tasters during the foraging walk. A two course wild food meal. 1 made on the day wild food preserve to take home. Wild food portfolio from the days session and any wild plants you wish to cook with at home.
