Join Carl Shillingford, forager and Michel Roux trained chef, and Matthew Rooney, ecologist and mushroom grower, for a fabulous mushroom forage in beautiful Suffolk countryside followed by a delicious wild food cooking demonstration and tasting.
Autumn is the season when mushrooms are bountiful in woods and meadows so join us to discover a variety of fungi, their shapes, colours, smells, textures and tastes - with at least 130 species of fungi recorded at Tiger Hill, from earth stars and bird's nests to beefsteak and chicken of the woods, you are bound to have a very productive forage!
The day begins with a fabulous guided forage in the woods and fields of Tiger Hill before retiring to the field kitchen for refreshments followed by a delicious wild food cooking demo.
The day ends with every forager receiving a Goodie Bag with information sheets, recipes and a selection of wild food products including hedgerow pesto, wild soup, dried mushrooms and mushroom sour dough.
Tickets cost just £45 to include refreshments, the guided forage, cooking demo and Goodie Bag.
