Wild Food Courses
I very much hope you will be able to come along on one of my mushroom or seashore forays next year. I take several forays of my own (which I often run with my wife Diane - and my daughters, when they can be persuaded to help) in the New Forest and along the Dorset Coast. Others are run with my good friends at River Cottage in south-east Devon or the Kingcombe Centre in West Dorset. I also run a few forays in association with the Summer Lodge hotel in West Dorset, Carriage House Restaurant in Buckinghamshire, Moon Down near Tonbridge Wells and others.
This page enables you to book on one of my own forays. Other forays will be posted elsewhere with links to the organisation running the day. I will only be taking two or three of my own seashore forays this year - the booking details of the first of these is below.
If you would prefer to book on to one of my forays via email using cheque or bank transfer then do let me know!
Looking for wild fungi or seaweed or razor clams or crabs is very exciting and I have had many many kind emails from people who enjoyed their day in the woods or at the seaside. Below are just three (genuine!) recommendations from Autumn 2012:
Can I say a very big thankyou for the Mushroom Foray that I took part in on Sunday 14th October in the New Forest. We all agreed we had a fantastic day. We learned a great deal and enjoyed your stories and anecdotes as we perused the forest!
I want to thank you for a great day out in the Forest on Saturday. Both Claire and I have learned far more than we thought possible.
We just wanted to thank you once more for a terrifically enjoyable day in the New Forest. As well as the excellent organisation, your gentle yet rapier-like wit and the generous refreshments, we came away with a real sense of warmth and bonhomie. On all counts it was an absolute pleasure.
