The best foraging weekends: UK hotspots for forest-to-fork dining
Forget farm-to-fork dining, with our growing concern about living sustainably and ethically comes a desire to be fully in charge of sourcing what we’re consuming – at least some of the time. As such, field-to-fork and forest-to-fork dining, aka ‘foraging’, is on the rise. From garlic in spring to mushrooms in autumn, the countryside’s hedgerows, fields and even seabeds are brimming with wild foods that are perfectly safe to pick and eat, if you know what you’re looking for.
Whether you’re craving an experience that takes you back to hunter-gatherer times, or simply looking to adopt a more conscientious approach to eating, here are some of the loveliest foraging courses and mini breaks in the UK.
