Wild Food Foraging with Gin making
You'll start the day at Bramble Cafe in Poundbury Dorchester at 10am before heading off (in own cars). Courses run on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
We spend the morning exploring the hedgerow and fields, finding a variety of wild plants and herbs and talk about how we can cook and use this wonderful bounty. Then we head to the seashore where, we might find shells, sharks purse, a variety of edible seaweeds and seashore plants. Mat will show you how to identify edible plants with confidence and how to stay safe using them.
We'll return to the cafe early afternoon for a delicious 3 course lunch, prepared by the team at the Cafe, inspired by beautiful seasonal produce.
Over lunch Mat will talk about making Gin and other ways of enjoying and preserving wild berries. You will have the opportunity to taste some Bramble Gin and Balsamic cured Blackberries (other berries might be substituted out of season).
You can then choose a beautiful Kilner jar filled with your choice of either Bramble Gin or Balsamic Berries to take away as a tasty memento of the day.
