Join us for a walk through the local woods and grass-lands, learning the basics of urban foraging. This will start with coffee and a run through of foraging rules. Then, we head outdoors into the local area for 1 hour collecting some easy-to-spot ingredients that grow abundantly in the Hackney Marsh. We will discuss the many ways you can enjoy these ingredients, what we are using in the restaurant now and in the coming weeks, why foraging is a sustainable and an enjoyable pass-time that all the family can be involved in.
We finish the tour with a light snack of what has been foraged, learning exciting recipes and how to make the most of these fresh ingredients!
Hands on wild butchery sessions for anyone keen to make the most of their meat!
Shane will take you through knife skills and butchery techniques, using seasonal fresh wild meats such as pheasant, deer, pigeon and rabbit. Learn different cuts and preparations, and come away with plenty of use and recipe ideas.
Sessions finish with a cooking demonstration and game feast, including wine, where you’ll get to taste the meats you’ve prepared.
