Cambridgeshire Mushroom & Wild Food Foraging and Cookery Course on Sunday 14th October 2018
The beautiful Hinchingbrooke Country Park, located in Huntingdon, is the perfect place to learn how to forage for edible plants and mushrooms growing all around us in the UK in autumn. This foraging course is easy to get to from Peterborough, Northampton, Bedford, and Cambridge.
At this species-rich venue, you'll discover how to identify some commonly growing foods to forage for, how to avoid poisonous lookalikes, and hints on where to look.
When we meet up, we will go through the basics of foraging before heading out over the park's range of habitats, including woodland, hedgerows, watersides, parkland, and meadows.
During the walk, I will introduce you to a number of edible species, giving you tips on harvesting, correct identification, and recipe ideas. You'll also get to sample a range of delicious wild food treats, which could include alcohol infusions, salts, pickles, syrups, cordials, and preserves, along the way.
On returning to our meeting point, we will have a quick break while I sort through our finds to create a light wild food meal.
Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted on the course.
