Wild Food Cooking

Update 27th June 2011: This workshop is now full and has a waiting list. 10am-5pm. Led by Zoe Bicat & Stuart Turner.

This workshop will take you through some intriguing, fun and deliciously earthy cooking methods tried and tested by our ancestors since prehistoric times. You will cook vegetables, fish, shellfish, meat and bread using rock ovens, clay, grasses and edible leaves. The techniques will be based around a central fire and will involve fire maintenance, digging and food preparation as well as the cooking itself. What to bring: the techniques involve handling extremely hot rocks and close working with fire, so if you want to get stuck in you will need a very sturdy pair of gloves, ideally ones which you don't mind getting scorched. Please bring your own pocket/utility knife.

Age limits: open to children 9 years and over with parent/carer supervising. Sharp tools including knives will be used in this workshop. Note: this workshop runs all day from 10am-5pm and is limited to 20 participants.

Free, but booking is essential. Email or phone 01865 236 088 to book your place.
