The Floating Kitchen

Monday, October 19th, 2009

On September 23rd, I embarked on a voyage down the river Trent on a Narrow Boat. The boat was skippered by Debs, an experienced woman of the river. We took with us eight guests for a twenty-four hour adventure, searching for wild food around the river. The afternoon was spent drifting down-river, with stops to pick crab apples, elderberries, comfrey leaves, rosehips, hawthorn berries, nettles and mustard leaf.
