Funghi Friday & Feast

“Funghi Friday” is a funghi focused event where we will be nerding out about all things funghi.  Expect a foray diving deep into how the world of funghi works followed by a workshop (growing/fermenting/preserving),  and a funghi feasting table incorporating much of the funghi discussed along the way.  Joined by Susy (they/them) who runs Queer as Funghi, and leads walks and fungal forays for trans and queer people.  It’s a great session and we are looking forward to discussing such a wonderful topic together with our areas of interest.

This is all inclusive so all drinks (plenty) and a significant feast so no need to book dinner after!  Open to all and everyone with an interest in learning more about funghi and eating them too!

Having worked with Susy closely it’s a wonderful perspective on how our relationship with nature can link with community care and mental health.  The conversations about fungi ties in well to so many pertinent topics at present as well as discussing the growing, identifying and learning about wild mushrooms and plants.  We also will provide a follow-up email to attendees providing all the information discussed, talking points, books and recipes.  Can’t wait!

We have various locations where the first few will be held at The Castle Climbing Centre garden (London, N5)

Flavour has to be natural, honest, and with a bit of earth still on it. There are no convoluted supply chains, and no air miles, only what’s natural and what’s good.

Humans have always depended upon a harmonious relationship with nature to provide the food we need.. This is something we have lost connection to and why Flavour Fred exists and what we focus on. We need these skills and knowledge for modern living and at Flavour Fred we want to keep these vital traditions alive.
