I am so pleased to be teaming up with my lovely friend Chloe, an amazing and very knowledgeable forager from Gourmet Gatherings, to offer you this fabulous, magical, immersive day of foraging, weaving & wild food along the incredible Severn Estuary.
We will spend the day at Black Rock picnic area on the Severn Estuary, where the foraging is phenomenal and the views spectacular! The day will begin with learning to weave a practical and beautiful foraging frame basket, with locally grown willows, whilst taking in the sights and sounds of the estuary and salt marshes. Throughout the morning we will enjoy foraged snacks and refreshments, prepared by Chloe with the finest seasonal & preserved wild ingredients.
With your lovely new baskets in hand, we will explore the salt marshes, hedgerows, meadows and coastal flats, at this very special and particularly abundant spot on the Estuary. The Spring wild edibles will be in their absolute element and Chloe will teach you how to find, identify, sustainably harvest and make delicious recipes with the myriad of wild foods we will encounter on our gentle & scenic meander.
We will then return to the picnic site, having worked up an appetite for a splendid wild lunch overlooking the water.
Spaces are limited to ensure an enjoyable and enriching experience.
Equipment: All tools and materials provided.
Lunch: Our lunch menu may include such delicacies as smoked Severn & Wye Salmon canapes with wild kimchi, wild mushroom miso soup, freshly baked foraged focaccia, wild venison pastries, freshly-picked wild salads, dips and hummus, and sweet and tasty foraged morsels for dessert, all washed down with a foraged cocktail or tea. Purely vegan or vegetarian diets can happily be catered to, as can any other dietary requirements.
