Fungi Foraging - Autumn

We are so excited to start our cookery and baking courses this Autumn and one of the most interesting for foodies and walkers a like is our food foraging and cookery courses with expert food forager Chris Bax.

This one day combined forage and cookery courses showcases 30-40 foraged food items that can be seen and tasted by just a four hour foraging walk along the Monsall Trail just outside Bakewell.  Chris then takes a selection from natures larder to create a stunning 4 course tasting menu for our hungry foragers to watch being cooked and then enjoy a small sample.

We have just a couple of places left on Chris's final foraging course before Christmas.  If you can't make it this time we will be repeating a foraging course in the Spring of next year.
