Wild Food Foraging and Artisan Cooking Courses


Explore the Northumberland countryside through a foraging course and find out what seasonal wild foods can be found. On a wild food forage and feast course you will learn how to find, identify and prepare the many edible wild plants and mushrooms that Northumberland has to offer.

Artisan Cookery

Much of our wild harvest is gourmet and sort-after by top chefs. Learn how to prepare and preserve some of nature’s finest offerings into both delicious dishes and ingredients to be enjoyed all year round. Cooking courses teach how to make the most of your foraging bounty. We also teach wild game preparation for the more adventurous which teaches you to take it from field to table.

These Wood-Fired Pizzas provide a truly unique and quirky menu and presence at your event. As well as traditional pizza toppings we also offer a range of Northumbrian Wild Food ingredients and creative artisan delicacies; ranging from rabbit, wild garlic leaf, seasonal wild mushrooms to lemon and chilli peppered smoked salmon.
