Herefordshire Spring Foraging and Fine Dining Course
Food and Drink
The Weir Gardens, Swainshill, Herefordshire HR4 7QF
We will meet at Byford Court at 11am, the day starts there with canapes and a 30 minute introductory talk on foraging. Then we will head down the road to The Weir Garden, a beautiful National Trust property boasting a lovely riverside garden, mature trees and even some ancient Roman ruins. The walk will be roughly 2 hours around the grounds identifying the different edible and poisonous Spring shoots, plants, flowers and mushrooms that we find. During the walk there will be little breaks for some of our homemade treats and tasters, possibly including our Hogweed and Wild Garlic soup. After the walk we will return to Byford Court for elderflower champagne and a five course wild food taster menu. We will email all of you details of all the plants we find to help you remember what you have learnt. Alcohol will be available on this course so please arrange a lift/taxi if you will be drinking. We will need to know of any special dietary requirements you have, please let us know in the comments section when booking. There are limited spaces available so please book your tickets online.
