Event description

Description

Our latest series spans the coming year and celebrates our foray into Scotland's hidden larder.

A culinary amble through our local landscape, we transform the very best wild ingredients on offer into an evening of delicious dishes and delectable drinks.

Head chef Rupert Waites and creative partner Tom Chisholm invite you to to join them on their journey of wild flavour exploration through their unique multi course tasting menus, showcasing the very best from the seashores, forests, fields and hedgerows.

Set in the characterful private rooms at the Dalriada in Portobello, guests join us around our communal table for an evening styled to incorporate elements of fine dining in the atmosphere of a relaxed dinner party.

Unusual, rare and humble ingredients are transformed into original menus for each event and presented with sophistication, creativity and a hint of theatre.

Each menu will also include a unique drinks flight created by resident, internationally renowned mixologist, Miran Chauhan, and a specifically curated wine and drinks list will also be available on the night to perfectly compliment the dishes on offer.

In an age when terms like “wild” and “foraged” are being overused by chefs and producers who barely step outside, Rupert and Tom at The Buck and Birch are a breath of fresh air. They are the real, wild deal - making time to get genuinely intimate with the plants, fungi, game and seaweeds that make up Scotland’s true natural larder, and using that as a springboard for creativity. You can taste their dedication, commitment and knowledge in everything they make."
- Mark Williams (leading Scottish foraging educator www.gallowaywildfoods.com)


"The menu is a masterclass in seasonality, resourcefulness, and damn fine cooking. Standout dishes include: ‘wood pigeon and what it likes to eat’ , a ‘coastal consommé’ poured by the diner over succulent razor clams, mussels, seaweeds, and scurvey grass (a posh pot noodle – as the chef delights in pointing out); and braised hare leg & seared loin with buttery jerusalem artichoke cream, wild mushrooms, and wild garlic."

"A veritable feast of fanciful and fascinating flavours, all courtesy of Mother Nature with a little help from The Buck and Birch. For anyone with an open mind when it comes to food a Buck and Birch pop-up is an experience not to be missed. Just don’t try and find out where they forage their prized fungi and other goodies. I’m sure they would tell you, but then you know they’d surely have to kill you."
-Scottish Field Magazine



Expect game, seafood, foraged treats and plenty of surprises - so join us with an empty belly and an open mind....


FAQs

Can accommodate dietary requirements?

Due to the nature of our events we cannot guarantee accommodating dietary requests. Given prior notice of allergies we will adapt dishes but we must have a minimum of 72 hrs notice. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate vegans but will be launching wild vegetarian/ vegan events later in the year.

Are the events BYOB?

Events in the past have been BYOB but for this series all drinks are to be purchased at the event. A selection of wines/ drinks paired to the menus can be bought by the glass or bottle and charged at the end of the evening.
