1. Forage for your dinner
In London, foraging is mainly reserved for squirrels rooting through bins hunting for Pret leftovers. But head out to the countryside, and foraging takes on a whole new meaning. Depending on the season, there are all kinds of plants out there you can eat, cook or brew in a tea. Take a foraging course and you’ll learn all about them, while getting out into nature to sniff out edible seeds, funghi and flowers for yourself. Most courses involve a cooking element too, where you’ll learn how to whip up your freshly foraged wild ingredients in a straight-from-the-woods lunch or dinner. Forage Fine Foods offer midweek courses, while Taste the Wild offer foraging days.
