Wild Food Foraging Course
Please email email@example.com for all bookings while we are in lockdown, we will check emails every few days.
We'll start the day with a coffee or tea before heading off (in own cars).
We'll begin by exploring the hedgerow and fields, finding a variety of wild plants & herbs and talk
about how we can cook and use this wonderful bounty. We'll have a snack of some pastries then we'll head to the seashore. As we walk along Chesil Beach, Mat will show you how to identify edible plants with confidence. We might find shells, sharks purse, a variety of edible seaweeds and seashore plants.
Your course will end with a delicious lunch, prepared by the team at the Cafe, inspired by beautiful seasonal produce. We are happy to cater for vegan, gluten free and most dietary requests, please let us know when you book.
Our courses run from March to September each year. During the winter months there is very little to find, so we don't run courses during the October to February period.
We do also offer this course with a Gin tasting and talk at the end of the course, you will be given a sample of Bramble Gin or Vinegar to take away, details are here.
