Autumn Forage & Feast 2022

Autumn Forage & Feast 2022

It comes around every year, we have to say goodbye to summer! Trading hot sunny days for cool, dark evenings can be tough, but we made the transition much easier for our Autumn Forage and Feast guests. A beautiful crisp day greeted us at Studland in Dorset last weekend and we shared everything we love about the season; bright clear skies, changing colour ways along the coast, hips and haws, local produce and of course foraging with a gaggle of happy humans.

Nettle Soup Foraging Recipe

Nettle Soup Foraging Recipe

Nettles (Urtica dioica) are a fabulous source of iron, protein and packed with minerals. High in calcium, magnesium, nitrogen, potassium, vitamin A & C, this is a wild plant that is super versatile and super good for you. Spring is the time to forage for nettles when they are young and tender, pick the smaller younger plants between spring and early summer. Our favourite way to use nettles as we move out of winter into spring is by making nettle soup, it’s something about the taste of the hedgerows and the comfort of a steaming bowl of spring green soup that feels like you’re being hugged every time you take a delicious mouthful.

In this guide we are sharing a few foraged plants that can be found in Spring that are reputed to help your immune system and fight infection.

Wild garlic pesto is a firm favourite and a simple way for us all to get this super spring ingredient into our diet without trying too hard. Whizz up wild garlic leaves, pine nuts, olive oil and parmesan in a food proccessor, season to taste and you have a perfect pesto at your fingertips that can be added to pasta, drizzled over tomatoes and Mozzarella, or spread over sourdough.

Winter Forage and Feast

Winter Forage and Feast

Winter foraging can be a real treat, at this time of year we can scour fields, shoreline and woodland to forage for greens, seeds, fungi and fruit and there’s a suprising haul of wild edibles out there. Join us to look back at our Forage and Feast in Dorset which took place in December, a time of year that many of us are conditioned to stay indoors to stay warm and snug against the elements. We quite literally threw caution to the wind and got out there with some hardy folk to learn the art of foraging and wild food.
