City Foraging Walk with Christopher Robins & Demuths, Thursday 1 June
You may think you know the streets of Bath well – but have you ever considered how wild it can get out there? Forager Christopher Robins believes that our beloved city’s well-trodden highways, byways and lanes are a foodie’s paradise… and he’s teamed up with Demuth’s Vegetarian Cookery School to show you what you’re missing as you scurry across town, resulting in a rare opportunity to experience the unique edible street life of Bath. From luscious greens to fruits, berries and nuts, this 3-hour stroll will introduce participants to the wonderful treats that can be found throughout the city, whether lurking in cracks in the pavements, alongside the neglected edges of footpaths, through the slivers of grass sneaking up fences, in church yards, along the canal and river towpaths and/or even in the tended Council garden beds. Have you been dismissing land cress as a mere weed? Do you know the difference between the edible and the ‘dead’ nettles lurking in neglected corners? Do you know where the wild garlic grows? Sign up, join in and get with the programme! This is street food as you’ve never experienced it before.
The enlightening, inspirational stroll starts at 10am with coffee at biscuits at the Cookery School and lasts for 3 hours in total. Bring your camera, a notebook and wear comfortable shoes…. and we’re off! Tickets cost just £15pp, children can join in for free (maximum 2 children per adult) and you can book your place right here. Go wild, Piggies!Categorised in: News
