If you’ve ever been intrigued by seaweeds, shellfish and coastal plants, this is the course for you. Join one the UK’s most experienced foragers, John Wright (seen on River Cottage) and wild food expert Monica Wilde, on this fascinating day out examining and discussing around 80 plants as we make our way to the shore. We’ll discuss their edibility and how to prepare them, their medicinal use, other uses and their unique stories.

This Scottish coast has a complex and varied habitat and we will be covering hedgerow plants, salt marsh succulents, estuary delicacies, beach dwellers as well as a host of edible seaweeds. There is also a lot of wildlife to look at, some edible, before we get to the sea itself.

At low tide, we will find the true glory of the day – the seaweeds – some of which we will cook later. Monica and John are enthusiastic about seaweed beyond reason and will share our many ways of preparing these unusual foods. We will follow the coast around until we arrive at the camp and enjoy a sumptuous wild food forager’s meal, plus some drink (obviously).

Note from John: I cannot make any promises, but I will put out crab and lobster pots the day before. If nature is kind, it will give an extra dimension to the day. A lobster-shaped dimension with any luck.
