Foraging and Wild Cooking 2022

Foraging is searching for, identifying and collecting natural food resources.

These include a wide variety of ingredients dependent on season and location.

Most people have foraged without even knowing it. If you’ve picked a blackberry from a bush, you’ve participated in foraging.

It can sometimes be difficult to find out where the food on our plate comes from, even in supermarkets it’s often tricky to learn the source.

Aside from the huge environmental benefits foraging has, it’s also a fun and useful practice that encourages a healthy relationship with food.

Experience an expert foraging and wood fired cooking experience in our beautiful mature woodlands in Oxfordshire.

Go on a foraging walk with trained herbalist and forager Justine Gens.

Learn to identify and forage plants in the woods and open glades.

Gather wood from the woodland floor, light a campfire and cook over an open fire.

Ingredients and recipes will vary according to the season and so far have included foraged mushroom pizza, nettle pesto and wood fired focaccia, pretzels, fresh pasta and salted crepes.

This will then be washed down by some warming herbal teas or hot chocolate.

This event will be held in the beautiful Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just an hour from London.

The woodland is part of a huge network of woodland that stretches across Oxfordshire and beyond.

There’s a beautiful village near the woods called Goring on Thames.

There are various places to stay there including the lovely hotel on the river called The Swan which also has electric boat and SUP hire for further adventures.

Or there’s the equally lovely Pangbourne or Reading which has a more diverse range of places to stay.
