This course will give you real taste of coastal wild food. The day encompasses fish and shellfish preparation and shows you some really delicious ways to use seaweeds as fabulous new ingredients.
The course is run at the Wolds cookery school which allows us to explore some more refined recipes than we could do over an open fire in the woods. Chris has created dishes that make the most of the wild foods we forage at the coast and delicious seasonal fish. He will teach you some great core cookery skills looking at fish and shell fish preparation, and the processing and cooking of seaweed and other foraged ingredients.
The day will be a mixture of demonstrations from Chris and plenty of hands on cooking sessions in the schools beautiful teaching kitchen. Lunch will be cooked as part of the course and you will also take away a goody bag and a comprehensive set of recipes for all the dishes.
The Wolds cookery school, near Driffield provides us with all we need for a fabulous day of cooking and eating. (Unfortunately we cannot cater for special dietary requirements on this course.)
The course will run from 9.30am until 4.00pm and will include delicious wild food lunch cooked as part of the course.
"Thank you so much for a fantastic foraging afternoon followed by a truly delicious meal. I can still taste that hogweed! You two are clearly passionate about foraging and that enthusiasm has definitely rubbed off on me."
"I wanted to thank you for inviting me to the coastal foraging course. I enjoyed it enormously, I really had a great time. Waking on the beach isn't going to be the same ever again! Thank you. Take care and keep up good work. It was truly inspirational."
"Thank you so much for the fantastic foraging day last Sunday. It was an inspired birthday present from my sister. I thought I knew quite a lot about plants but I learned masses and loved smoking the trout for lunch and learning how to fillet a fish. Have had a look at your blog and definitely going to try the Meadowsweet creme brulee soon. Was great to meet you and I hope our paths cross again."
"What a fantastic course and few days in Staithes. Your hard work, skill, knowledge and enthusiasm were all evident and much appreciated by all of us. Many thanks for looking after us so well. We will without doubt recommend you to others, confident they will enjoy it as much as we all did. Looking forward to foraging on the Lewis sea shore and harvesting delicious sea weed. I fear that it may not be cooked quite as well as that memorable meal on Thursday night but we'll live in hope! Best wishes and many, many thanks."
