“Meet your ingredients” is an interactive monthly session. We will be walking along a route foraging for flavour and teach the identification techniques, folklore and the history associated with wild ingredients. Many of the sessions at Lydhurst will also be joined by @queer.as.funghi so these extra special sessions will be the last Saturday of each month.
Culminating at The Castle Climbing Centre garden (London, N5) or Lydhurst Private Estate (West Sussex, RH17 5TR) for a wild inspired banquet with my selection of wild drinks.
This is all inclusive so all drinks (plenty) and a significant feast so no need to book dinner after! We will be running a Shuttle Service from Haywards Heath station. See each event for more details.
The purpose is to showcase wild flavour; how to find it; discussing its history and different uses regionally and across the globe. Each menu will be seasonal, wild and much of the ingredients from the garden at the castle or Lydhurst kitchen gardens.
We will also enjoy paired drinks/cocktails each dish where non-alcoholic versions will also be available. Here’s a sneak peak at the sample menu for summer where all dishes are plant-based with all dietary requirements catered for.
