This vegetarian cookery course will be held in the barn on our private woodland site in North Yorkshire. Most of the wild ingredients will have been collected in advance but there may be a little foraging still to be done on the day. On this course Chris will demonstrate some dishes that really make wild ingredients sing out. There will be plenty of hands on cooking sessions to help you practice and develop your skills with wild ingredients. You will learn how wild ingredients can enhance tastes that you know well and how a completely new wild flavours can create exciting vegetarian dishes.
- Nettle pasta ravioli filled with Ricotta and Wild Garlic
- Yorkshire Pesto
- Thistle and Rosebay stir fry
- Wild Salad
- Wild Green veloute
- Burdock crisps
There is a lot of cooking and eating on this course: Our morning snack, our lunch and an afternoon snack will all be cooked together and of course there will be hot drinks.
The course also looks at sustainable foraging techniques, the legalities of foraging and how to keep on the right side of the law.
Food Hygiene is an important concern and this will also be covered on the course.

Vegetarian Wild Food Cookery
"Thank you so much for your knowledge, hospitality and shared culinary treats today guys. Had such an amazing time and we'll be back before too long to do another course!! I would love to do the coastal course I've decided and think I'll be asking Santa in advance for a special treat this year for next ;). I'm also spreading the word in the hope that we can see you again with more friends/and family"
"I had the most fantastic time this weekend on the Vegetarian Wild Food weekend and wanted to thank you guys for a fun, informative and healthy weekend. I came away enthused and excited and my wife in the end had to tell me to shut up as it was obvious I was over excited. Chris – your food was excellent! I’m not much of a ‘foody’ but I came back inspired to start cooking again. Rose – I love your woodland and what you have done with it regards the planting schemes, environmentally sensitive controls and sculptures. I’ve picked up some good ideas I hope to do at our hut. Though I do live 140 miles away if you ever need any assistance please do not hesitate to call me. I will recommend your courses to my colleagues ‘in the trade’. Keep up the good work and I hope to meet again one day. May your journey through life provide health and most benefit."
"A quick e-mail to thank you both for such an interesting day on Saturday. We were a bit worried about what to expect from the day, but it turned out to be very friendly, informative and tasty! (particularly the end of day tasting session). Now we have started to look out for free food we can’t believe just how much there is literally right on our doorstep. Hope to see you both again before too long; having enjoyed ourselves so much we’ve now got our eyes on the course at Staithes."
