Food Festival Workshop: Wild Cooking & Foraging

We hosted an interactive workshop and demonstration of wild food, foraging and outdoor cooking at Newtown Food Festival. The workshop was open to all ages to have a go for themselves. We cooked; hazel choc cakes, popcorn, toffee apple slices, wild teas, damper bread, smoked fish, hedgerow crumble and baked a loaf of bread in a dutch oven. Everyone had a great time. Also, Lea ran several demonstrations of how to make natural remedies from wild plants found around the site, using weeds for medicine.
We loved doing this workshop and we're available for other Food Festivals or events that would like to book our workshop and demo. Please get in touch.
