Fore a Feast | A Summer Session With Foraged Finds And Wild Cocktails

Sep 16, 2015 | Foraging And Feasting, Forage And Feast, Outdoor Activities Special Events

Sitting pretty by the seashore under our canopy, complete with rain drops as only a true British summer can be, we forged our summer foraged feast 2015.  Indeed, we had all the ingredients you need for such an evening of merriment! Chef Director at The Pig, James Golding alongside Damien Clisby head chef from Petersham Nurseries turned our foodie finds into tasty treats. Furthermore, the very clever James Fowler from the Larder House stirred us up a stormy wild cocktail.

By day we hit the high seas on our trusty steeds to catch us a mackerel supper. Secondly, we scavenged for wild edibles that would later be putting the chefs to the test to create our feast 2015. Making connections between our plate and our environment is what we love. Therefore. what better way to do that by showing the chefs what our little patch has to offer. It’s not just wild food but also heart warming (and pumping!) experiences. It all makes the food taste even better!

What It’s All About

When all the hard work had been done for our feast 2015, we sat back and enjoyed the moment. We laid the table with jam jars filled to the brim with our wild garden flowers, ferns alongside placemats of foraged herbs. Lanterns shed a warm glow and the crackle of the fire provided a hum in the background. This was one of those moments that made us feel blessed to be in such wonderful company.

It’s all about encouraging people to respect our environment & understand it. We’re stripping it back to the simple stuff, experimenting with & enjoying what’s all around us every day. It’s the stuff we do all the time, but we all want to share it & let people know that with a tiny bit of knowledge they can do it too. Have a goose at our Feast 2015 Menu whet your appetite for next time…
