Foragers Lunch Event
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us for this new seasonal event - hopefully the first of many!
In the morning we will have a quick overview of what we can expect to find before heading out into the farm and foraging what's in seasons. After a few hours we will head back to the Royal Oak where the chefs will prepare our findings for a glorious forager's lunch!
"As a child I would patrol the hedgerows and woodland surrounding our village in search of adventure. I remember the joy of finding Wild Asparagus dotted along the country lanes, plucking Giant Puffballs to take home for my mum to cook and spending hours hollowing out underground dens – the smell of the soil is still so evocative for me today.
In my early twenties I moved to Bristol, and met other people whose passion was hunting for wild food. Accompanying them I soon found myself hooked on foraging; spending long hours outdoors, only the darkness dictating when I left the woods, heading for home.
A few years later I started supplying wild food to local restaurants. I was generating income from my foraging and it was wonderful to see food I had picked transformed, through the skill and creativity of gifted chefs into gourmet meals.
During this time I was working as a musician; playing with a variety of bands up and down the country. Along side this I began practising Zhan Zhuang Chi Kung; Standing Like a Tree – you may want to look that one up! This experience has given me an increased awareness of subtle changes in the environment; a vital attribute for any forager.
My journey with wild food has led me to all kinds of interesting places, as well as people."
