Festival Family Foraging in the Forest of Dean

foraged foodsThe Forest Showcase Food Festival is expanding to offer a new & exciting festival family forage for those foodies that would like to discover the bounty of nature’s best ingredients available right on the doorstep.

Visitors to the event will be able to join local forager Liz Knight as she takes on a series of free family foraging walks through the beautiful Speech House woods. Each walk will last for 45 minutes & at the end of the day our fabulous chefs in the cookery theatre will use the ingredients gathered to make some very tasty dishes.

Join Liz & as you walk, you and your children will learn how to identify and gather a range of wild foods including spices, seeds, nuts, berries fruit and more, turning what grows in your garden and in the wild into store cupboard ingredients. With Liz’s expert guidance, you will learn how to preserve all these finds to make your winter diet packed full of delicious flavours.

Liz Knight runs Forage Fine Foods from her kitchen in rural Herefordshire she is a forager who teaches wild cookery courses, writes and makes a range of wild/botanical flavourings.

The Forest Showcase will be held in the grounds fo The Speech House Hotel, Forest of Dean on Sunday 7th October 2018, further details & tickets are available form http://www.forestshowcase.org
