Walk on the Wild Side
The first forage of this Autumn took place last Sunday and what a day it was! Twenty enthusiastic fungi fans joined Matthew Rooney and Carl Shillingford of Foragers Feast, to spend the day in search of nature's autumn treasures.
We were blessed with gorgeous weather and as the morning sun shone through dappled leaves we sipped on Matthew's specially brewed tea and made the most of Carl's homebaked bread with sticky damson and hawthorn jams before setting out on three hours of fascinating foraging. The group was made up of a lovely mix of people, some had come with friends or family members, others were on their own; all were interested in the same thing - enjoying the outdoors, keen to know more about Nature's Larder and excited to sample the delights of a really good cook who can throw simple ingredients together, in the most unpretentoius surroundings, to produce a feast.
