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.

Foraging course with Fergus Drennan

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

On the 14th May 2009, I spent a day with Fergus the Forager on one of his courses in Kent. Fergus has an incrediable amount of experiece with Wild Food, he is hugely enthusiastic, and experimental. In one day I tasted about 30 plants I had never experienced before, and was blown away by the variety and power of flavours.
