Introduction to Food Foraging

Thursday 7th February 2013

Demonstration and Talk by wild food expert Jesper Launder

6.00-8.00pm The Restaurant 

 It's hard to imagine that winter and wild food might go hand in hand, however wild food expert, Jesper Launder, challenges you to re-think this assumption.

Jesper will introduce you to some wonderfully edible and visually satisfying seasonal wild food delights.  From tasty young plant shoots, to edible roots, to health-giving gourmet wild mushrooms, this workshop offers an opening into the fascinating world of 'food for free'.

A collaboration with Cracking Good Food www.crackinggoodfood.org 

Part of a special evening for Dickens’ 201st birthday, that links with 'The Walk to Dover' by Turner Prize nominee, Spartacus Chetwynd, a contemporary art intervention in our 19th Century Galleries, inspired by Dicken's novel David Copperfield.  During Copperfield's walk to Dover to find his aunt,  he survived by foraging for food.  This has prompted us to think about what foraging means today.

There will be other Copperfield related activities taking place over the course of the evening from 6pm. Plus wild food related items on our Cafe menu.
