What you'll do

Spend a day in the woods, learning about edible plants, foraging wild flavours and cooking delicious food on an open fire. After cooking up your dishes your group will share a late lunch together in Brown Rock Farm’s beautiful rustic roundhouse in the middle of the woods. This is more than a day for learning, it’s a chance to enjoy being outside all day, surrounded by nature.

This immersive experience will focus on Eastern Mediterranean style dishes cooked over fire with a twist of the wild. For George, it’s all about feeding his passion of wild flavours, fire cooking and providing an unforgettable experience. His background includes 15 years cheffing, professional foraging and outdoor cookery.

Picture this: flatbreads, hummus and labneh, slow cooked lamb or vegetable tagine, chargrilled root vegetables, a dessert using seasonal fruit and plenty more. We can assure you: you won’t leave hungry! (The menu may not be exactly this but will be similar to this).

Your hosts will be Hannah from Wild Folk and George Fredenham, a chef, distiller and forager based in London, known as ‘Flavour Fred’.

Your day in nature will include:

  • A woodland ‘flavour led’ foraging walk (2-2.5hrs) with George
  • Food + drink samples during the foraging walk
  • Demonstration of cooking over fire and how to incorporate wild ingredients
  • Hot drinks and snacks throughout the day
  • A delicious lunch to enjoy together (some pre-made by George, some made by you during the day!)
  • A professional chef and forager to fire questions at
  • There will be the invitation to get involved with the food prep and cooking and to have intentional moments of quiet in the woods

One participant said when we were enjoying our lunch, ‘Today has felt timeless.‘ And that is exactly how we want this day to feel for you – spacious, without rush or hurry. We want you to finish the day feeling refreshed, energised, inspired, content, rested.

If you would like to book this for a private group, simply contact this host directly with the date and time you wish to attend and they can get planning this event for you.

Minimum fitness level required.
