Foraging with Fat Hen

Last updated: 26 June, 2023

Professional forager, ecologist and cook Caroline Davey has been widely featured in the press and on TV – including the BBC’s Countryfile – such is the popularity of her wild food foraging and cooking school.

The courses, which include gourmet weekends for serious food lovers, can involve gathering seaweeds and seasonal herbs, flowers, salads and vegetables from beaches, cliff tops, woodlands and hedgerows, cooking modern dishes with professional chefs, and feasting together after.

There’s no minimum age but it’s unlikely to appeal to young children – but older kids with an interest in food, nature and cooking will love it.
