Carol Hunt - Wild Food Forager


Foraging for wild food is continually increasing in popularity in the UK and Wild Edibles are often seen on menus in the Top London Restaurants. More and more people are no longer satisfied with just foraging black berries for their Fruit Crumble but are seeking further knowledge and skills in safely foraging and cooking wild foods.

Our out-door natural larder is full of exciting discoveries and experienced forager, Carol Hunt will take you on your own journey into the world of foraging. Carol has been foraging and cooking with Wild Food for many years, and is well known for her amazingly creative and delicious wild dishes.

Carol will guide you on your own wild food adventure from forage and preparation to sampling the tasty Wild Dishes you have cooked together. Our foraging course is held in our beautiful 100 acre woodland near Canterbury and the surrounding fields.

If you've ever wanted to learn the skills of foraging and how to identify wild plants then this is the course for you.

Our foraging day will begin with introductions and a short talk about safety and best practice in foraging, along with a brief outline of the location and the types of plants/fungi or other edibles that we may hope to encounter while we're there.
 

Followed by a walk of approximately one and half hours (the walk may be longer, subject to terrain/habitat and the types of edibles that we are looking for) during which time we will identify and harvest edible plants etc., and other samples, and also identify and discuss any toxic plants we may find.

On our return to camp we will then pause for lunch, after which the group will spend some time preparing, cooking and finally sampling a wild food dish made from the ingredients we have gathered.

The day will close with our breaking and clearing camp, and a question and answer session.

 

Bringing the excitement of nature back in to your life!
