The Adventure will begin with a steaming cuppa and an introduction to HUNTERGATHERCOOK, during spring and summer, seasonal day courses take place in the woods at the Treehouse HQ and in Autumn, at Shepherds Barn.
We will then throw you straight in at the deep end and send you off to our butchery field camp. Depending on the season we will teach you how to skin, gut and joint the wild meat of the day in preparation for lunch and the afternoon’s taster dishes.
Before lunch we will embark on a foraging walk where we will teach you how to identify seasonal wild edibles and taste & nibble your way through the woods, fields and meadows.
On return to the HGC HQ we will then put your newly acquired plant knowledge to the test, followed by preparing a two course menu with our team of Chefs, using both foraged and store cupboard staples.
After Lunch we will move onto the afternoon workshops, which vary according to season. These are designed to teach you a variety of skills that will encourage you to feel more comfortable in the outdoors and help you to see how the surrounding landscape can not only be your larder but a workshop full of useful materials.
The day will round up with a wild cocktail workshop and tasting and a final cook off using a variety of outdoor cookery methods. Expect to get your hands dirty, a good dousing of wood smoke and learn valuable skills that will stay with you forever ready for your next culinary adventure into the wild.
From wood selection and fire starting to butchery and foraging, all the tools the 21st century hunter-gatherer needs to master the world of outdoor cookery.
